According to a tweet, the group officially got approval to shut down part of the street in front of the National Rifle Association’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia on August 4.
The “National March on NRA” comes nearly seven months after 17 people were massacred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. The mass shooting sparked the March For Our Lives rally that brought a reported 800,000 people to D.C. on March 24, 2018, to demand the end of gun violence and mass school shootings.

Ever since the march, participants have been committed to keeping the movement going.
Organizers are expecting a lot of people to attend the August 4 march and said it is the first time the road in front of the NRA has ever been shut down.
According to their website, "National Org. For Change and March For Our Lives will team up and show our politicians that we refuse to accept gun violence as an unsolvable issue. Now it’s time to turn our energy into action."
The march is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 4, 2018, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the NRA headquarters located at 11250 Waples Mill Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030.
