"The majority of gun owners want gun control and we're putting lives of these children at the feet of Congress and saying, 'Catch up, act now, let's end this'".

The memorial comes the day before the scheduled national student walkout to protest gun violence following the Parkland, Fla. high school shooting last month that killed 17 people. The Capitol is the home of the U.S. Congress.

"About five families came that were victims of gun violence", says Oscar Soria, senior campaigner with the protest group. "The protesters held up a sign that read "#NotOneMore".

Donors to the shoe monument include actresses Susan Sarandon and Bette Midler, and talk show host Chelsea Handler.

The event mirrors a similar display the group put on following the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris ahead of the Global Climate Summit. Avaaz, an worldwide advocacy group, planned the demonstration to honor victims killed since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. That report found that approximately 1,300 children are killed by guns each and every year. "Culture is changing in America right now". A few have threatened to suspend students if they disrupt class by leaving.

The silent protest is meant to spur lawmakers to take action on gun reforms.

Organizers of the memorial said the Parkland shooting was the catalyst for creating the memorial.
