Officials tell Axios the latest tally stands at 832 marches planned worldwide tomorrow as part of "March for Our Lives." According to Everytown for Gun Safety, that includes marches in 387 congressional districts — covering 89% of the country. 

The big picture: "They can't buy a beer or rent a car and most aren't even old enough to vote, yet the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have spearheaded what could become one of the largest marches in history with nearly 1 million people expected in Washington and more than 800 sister marches from California to Japan," AP's Kelli Kennedy writes from Parkland, Florida.
