The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is supporting the surviving Parkland students organizing a march in Washington D.C. and will march alongside them.

After the horrendous shooting in Parkland, teenage survivors are demanding gun laws be changed in the United States. As part of their movement, they’ve organized a march in Washington D.C. set to take place next month. Clearly they’re taking the matter very seriously and their efforts really need to be commended.

One person very impressed with what these young people are doing is Jimmy Fallon. On last night’s Tonight Show, Fallon spoke about the kids and how what they’re doing is so remarkable. In fact, Fallon is so moved by what they’re doing, that he fully intends to take his family and come march alongside them in D.C.

“I just want to say, I stand behind you guys, and I will be marching alongside you with my wife and two children,” Fallon explains on his show. He then offers his thanks for those students bold enough to speak out and call for change, and reminds them that he will see them all in person on March 24. So while not everyone in the country agrees with what these kids are doing, they’ll have at least one famous face on their team supporting them.
