CEDAR FALLS -- A national march protesting gun violence was postponed due to heavy snowfall in the area.

March for Our Lives will now be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at Gateway Park, Lincoln and North Main streets, in Cedar Falls.

Organizers had hoped to continue the march but were forced to cancel just before 1 p.m. Saturday.

Cedar Falls had received around 10 inches of snow by that time.

Participants will march next week from the park down the sidewalks to Main Street and end at Fifth Street, near the offices of U.S. Rep. Rod Blum.

The event will feature speakers from local high schools including Daejaun Oneal from Waterloo East, Edina Kuduzovic and Emily Juhl from Waterloo West and Dylan Mack from Waterloo Columbus, as well as Travis Fletcher, a sophomore elementary education major from the University of Northern Iowa.

March for Our Lives marches took place in Washington, D.C., and communities across the country Saturday. The event was sponsored by Everytown for Gun Safety and locally by Americans for Democratic Action Iowa.
