Survivors of a February school shooting have taken their message on the road and Tuesday they will be in Omaha. 

Parkland survivors, students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, launched the new initiative, “Road to Change.” The students say they’re trying to get young Americans “educated, registered and motivated to vote.”

This latest move follows the March for Our Lives movement after a gunman opened fire and killed 17 people at a South Florida high school on Valentine’s Day.

Critics see this movement as an attack on gun rights and point out school shootings continued despite demonstrations for safer schools and calls for stricter gun laws.

Indivisible Omaha is hosting the event at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Hilton.

Organizers say the event will feature a panel discussion, Q&A and breakout sessions.
