THE PARKLAND students, who founded “March for Our Lives” after the shooting massacre at their highschool in FL. spoke out for the first time since 31 people were killed in one weekend in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. Their plan — unveiled Wednesday morning — will be considered by President Trump as well as his Democratic presidential rivals and will serve as a catalyst for a surge of youth voters next year, according to The Washington Post.
“The power in the U.S. resides in the culture and what we choose to prioritize,” said David Hogg, a co-founder of March for Our Lives.
Called “A Peace Plan for a Safer America,” the ambitious platform, which was obtained by The Washington Post, goes much further than the current debate over universal background checks and “red flag” laws, which would apply to people who could be a danger to themselves and others.
We need more youth if we want to stop the republicans and protect the youth
