Lyft Offers Free Rides to ‘March For Our Lives’ Protesters

Ride-sharing service, Lyft has decided to offer free rides to those who plan to participate in “March For Our Lives” gun control rallies across the nation, Mother Jones reports.

In a letter addressed to the students of Majory Stoneman Douglas High School, the co-founders of Lyft expressed their support for those affected by the tragic shooting.

On Valentine’s Day, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire as classes were being held, killing 17 students and members of the staff.

“We believe there is something seriously wrong when the threat of gun violence is so frequent and real throughout the country,” they wrote. “And like many, we are inspired by your leadership.”

The “March For Our Lives” protests will take place on Mar. 24. For more information click here.
