Students have called a press conference tomorrow morning in Parkland to announce the next stage of the March For Our Lives movement.

The group provided few details in a release announcing the event —  will be held at the City of Parkland Amphitheater at 10 a.m. Monday. But organizers did write that "the students will be harnessing the enormous energy and passion against gun violence displayed by the millions of people at the 800 March For Our Lives events across the country on March 24 and turning it into action."

David Hogg, a pro-gun control organizer and survivor of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead, was similarly mum on Twitter.

"Ok I'm off twitter until after our big announcement tomorrow," Hogg tweeted Sunday afternoon.

The student-led March For Our Lives movement has been relatively quiet in the months since the national day of student anti-gun violence demonstrations in March.

But student-activists like Hogg have repeatedly waded into the issues of the day. Just last month, activists called for boycotts of Publix after the Tampa Bay Times reported on the supermarket chain's donations to Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam.

But many of those moments have come at the individual activist level. Tomorrow will mark a new phase for the movement.

"We're so excited to let the world know what we've been working on these past few months," Jacyln Corin, another student organizer, tweeted Sunday.
