Parkland Students

Jaclyn Corin, Emma Gonzalez, Alex Wind


After one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, decided enough was enough and began to rally for gun control. What started as a one-day protest evolved into a nationwide movement, as these students organized a national protest in less than five weeks. The March for Our Lives was one of the most historic marches for gun control in America, and the Parkland students have made it clear that thoughts and prayers are not enough to end the dangerous cycle of school shootings. The latest wave of U.S. activism has been dominated by America’s youth and there is no stopping the momentum of what the younger generation has created.

The conference proved to be one of the most engaging and exciting professional gatherings of like-minded people I've ever attended. Although the topics, content, and presentations all appropriately centered around volunteering and service in some way, the sheer range of them was simply astounding.
