D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and singer Justin Timberlake teamed up to welcome the thousands of protesters who are expected to descend on the District for the "March for Our Lives" rally Saturday.
"As mayor of Washington, D.C., I’m pleased to welcome students and families supporting the ‘March for our Lives’ this Saturday,” Bowser says in a video posted on Timberlake’s Instagram page.
Bowser and Timberlake also urged people to get involved and join the march.
"It’s been so inspiring seeing young people out there owning their voice and getting ready to own their vote," Timberlake said. “We need you to show up, too."
Bowser said she will join the march on Saturday.
"We all need to demand action to save lives," she said.
