Energized from "March For Our Lives" rallies across the nation, thousands of teens say they’re ready to stay active working for tougher gun laws.

In Texas, children and their parents, students and teachers gathered everywhere from Dallas and Fort Worth to Lubbock and Beaumont.

In downtown Dallas, a raucous, energized crowd swelled into the thousands Saturday to rally against gun violence in schools. The demonstration was inspired by students in Parkland, Florida -- survivors of last month’s school attack that killed 17.

Students across the country will be protesting gun violence as part of "March For Our Lives" Saturday. Sophie Conde, a junior at Centennial High in Frisco, is helping lead the march in downtown Dallas. 

In our Friday Conversation, she told KERA's Rick Holter that student organizers plan to keep the momentum going after the march ends.
