Florida Rallying Cry

Survivors of other mass shootings join Parkland to form new gun control advocacy groups.

There have been more rallies and vigils around Parkland for victims of last week’s school shooting. Parkland is vowing to keep making noise until lawmakers act. They’re planning to march on Washington next month, and students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will be meeting with state representatives in Tallahassee. Then they’ll head to Washington. Parkland students say they hope the nationwide interest will lead to real reforms. Teachers and staff at Stoneman Douglas return to school on Friday, for meetings and discussions about how to move forward. Classes will resume next Tuesday at the earliest.
