This weekend, thousands of young people from the Washington region and around the country are expected to attend a rally on the National Mall they’ve dubbed the “March For Our Lives,” with students demanding action to stem the tide of school shootings. But how do we talk about gun violence when it’s not in the form of a mass shooting? What about students in D.C. who fear gun violence on the way to and from school?
