During a rally on Tuesday, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh announced the city will be providing free buses to students who wish to attend the March For Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., that is scheduled to take place March 24.

In addition to the buses, the city will provide T-shirts and lunches for the students.
