George and Amal Clooney, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, and Oprah Winfrey
will donate to the March for Our Lives
, a demonstration to advocate for gun control in the wake of Wednesday’s tragic shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
“The young students in Florida and now across the country are already demonstrating their leadership with a confidence and maturity that belies their ages,” The Clooneys, Spielbergs, Katzenbergs, and Winfrey each vowed $500,000. The Clooneys and Katzenbergs will also participate in the march on Washington, D.C. The March 24 rally is organized by five teenagers who survived Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in collaboration with the nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety. Rallies will also be organized in cities throughout the U.S.
