Parkland Shooting Survivors Open Up About the Inspiration Behind the ‘March for Our Lives’

#NeverAgain

Emma Gonzalez, Cameron Kasky, and Jaclyn Corin — all students at Stonemason Douglas High School — are taking a stand. After surviving the tragic shooting on their school in Parkland, Florida last week, the teens organized the March for Our lives, a national event in which people will take to the streets and call for change. While on The Ellen Show, the inspiring trio opened up about the inspiration behind the march:

“The thing that inspired us to create the march was people saying, ‘You are all talking about gun control and this is not the time to talk about gun control. This is the time to mourn and to grieve.’ And we understand that. We said, ‘Now might not be the time to talk about gun control. Here’s the time to talk about gun control: March 24th.'”

Celebrities like Camila Cabello, Jenna Ortega, Zendaya and more have pledged their support for the movement, and will likely join Emma, Cameron, Jaclyn and thousands of others on March 24th in demanding that the safety of citizens becomes a nationwide priority.

In case you missed it, fellow SDHS students and survivors took the stage at CNN’s Town Hall with a performance of “Shine,” an empowering and uplifting original written by the school’s drama club.
