NEW YORK, NY -

The Black Eyed Peas tackle gun violence at schools and immigration in two new music videos for their song, "Big Love."
  
The trio released the videos Friday. Proceeds from the song will benefit the student-led March for Our Lives organization, calling for stricter gun laws, and Families Belong Together, a protest against the Trump administration policy of separating children from families after they are detained illegally crossing the U.S. border.
  
In the video confronting gun violence at schools, will.i.am and Taboo - who portray a teacher and a gym coach - are shot by a gunman along with several students, while others run for safety. Apl.de.ap is a police officer in the clip.
  
The second video focuses on officers stopping immigrants from crossing the U.S. border.
