On February 14, 2018, David Hogg and Samantha Fuentes’s lives changed forever. As seniors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, David and Samantha survived the largest school shooting in American history. Having lost friends, classmates and teachers, they decided to take action, so no other young person would have to experience what they went through on that fateful day.
Joining with friends from school, David and Samantha co-founded March For Our Lives, a youth led gun violence prevention movement that organized one of the largest mass mobilizations this nation has ever seen on March 24, 2018. Since then, David and Samantha’s activism have taken them around the country, meeting with youth to deepen their knowledge of how to be agents of change for the future.
Come listen to David and Samantha discuss the community impact of engaged and empowered youth.
