As gun violence continues to plague the nation, protestors are taking their message to the doorstep of lawmakers in Washington D.C.
7,000 shoes were left on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol this morning in memory of the children whose lives have been lost to gun violence since 2012's Sandy Hook shooting. The protest, which uses the hashtag #NotOneMore, was organized by human rights organization Avaaz.
"Shoes from family members of victims as well celebrities and citizens across the country will be displayed from early morning," Avaaz said in a statement.
Following today's demonstration, the shoes will reportedly be donated to charities.
