Thousands marched Saturday from Crocker Park to the west steps of the state Capitol to decry gun violence during the March of our Lives Sacramento event.

The Sacramento march was one of more than 800 planned sister marches to the main gathering in Washington, D.C., organized by the survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., last month.

Here are snapshots, via Twitter, from the Sacramento march:
