A group of students and survivors from the deadly school shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in February are launching a nationwide bus tour to further their anti-gun agenda.
“This tour is about exposing people who take money from the NRA and registering people to vote,” student activist Jaclyn Corin said. “Those are the two main things we’re trying to push with this.”
One of the leaders of the “March for Our Lives” group, Emma Gonzalez, believes that not supporting their cause is akin to being anti-child. “If you don’t support this,… it’ll look like you’re going against kids,” Gonzales told Axios.
Beginning June 15 in Chicago, the group will embark on a 75-stop bus tour through 20 states, including California, Texas, Connecticut, and South Carolina. Another separate tour will be touring every congressional district in Florida.
Leading the tour is mainstream media darling, David Hogg. “I think that it’s important that we include everybody that’s affected by this issue and we have to work together to solve it,” Hogg said. “And I think being on the ground is the best way to do that.”
As part of the “March for Our Lives: Road to Change” Tour, the teens plan to meet with victims and survivors of gun violence as well as mobilize the more than 4 million teens who have turned 18 this year and have become eligible to vote.
