It's more than just talking about it.

"We are fighting to save lives and we are just trying to prevent gun violence in many different forms."

 These young activist and shooting survivors are on the march for their lives. 

"We are not trying to slow it down, we are trying to stop it." 

They are on a road to change, hitting multiple states and cities across the country. 

"We don't want to see people shot down on the streets and left there for hours so that's what we are talking about." 

Now they are hoping their voices will touch people in Omaha.

"It's a very important message and it's important to share this to everyone and get them to help out in anyway that they can," said Zoe Brumfield. 

They say it's not just about changing gun laws, they want more young adults at the polls.

With the hopes of creating the largest voter turn out for the mid term elections. 

"Most of the time people don't get out to vote, so if they don't vote nothing is going to change," said Brumfield. 

Without endorsing any candidates, these young adults say they are just hoping to make an impact one city at time.

This movement is completely non partisan, a lot of people think we are a bunch of liberals but that is not the case at all," said Joclyn Corin.

"We endorse policy not people," said Corin.
