Parkland, FL Survivors Visit MN – Register Young People to Vote
In February of this year, 17 students were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The survivors of this horrible mass shooting have been speaking out ever since about gun reform laws.
They are currently traveling the country to spread their message about gun reform laws "they believe are needed to save lives" and to get young people to register to vote. They made a stop in the Twin Cities this past weekend and will be in Moorhead tomorrow (the 26th).
One student, David Hogg, told WCCO, “What happens when we don’t vote is we elect people who are not morally just leaders. People who don’t represent what we actually believe in and fight for."
WCCO reports that the Parkland, FL students got 59 people to register to vote on Sunday when they were at the Pride Parade.
