March for Our Lives, the gun control movement launched this year by survivors of the Parkland high school shooting, has incorporated as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization with "a multi-million dollar budget, offices in South Florida and Washington, and even its own lobbyist," reports the Miami Herald.

Why it matters: Since organizing a massive demonstration in Washington on March 24, the group has capitalized on their own momentum by continuing to host rallies and events across the country, with a particular emphasis on registering young people to vote. In the months since the February 14 shooting, the share of registered voters between the ages of 18 and 29 has risen 2.16% nationally and 7.99% in Florida.

Many politicians and public health officials sounded a similar lockdown refrain in the spring: let’s do this right so we only have to do it once.

Reality check: While some countries have thus far managed to keep cases under control after opening up, dozens of countries that had initially turned a corner are now seeing a worrying rebound. They have to decide if and how to return to lockdown — and whether their populations will stand for it.
