We have all been directly or indirectly impacted by these senseless tragedies.”

Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele told WWD: “I am truly moved by the courage of these students. My love is with them and it will be next to them on March 24. I am standing with March for Our Lives and the strong young women and men across the United States who are fighting for their generation and those to come.”
