March For Our Lives
Glimmer of Hope
Sunday, October 21, 2018, 7:30PM
Temple De Hirsch Sinai Seattle (Capitol Hill)

Since the tragedies at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the March For Our Lives movement has taken a stand against senseless gun violence. The Parkland students work together with young leaders of all backgrounds from across the country to hold politicians accountable and combat the normalization of gun violence.

March For Our Lives brings Jammal Levy, Alex Wind, and David Hogg, all survivors of the Parkland shooting, to Town Hall’s stage to share Glimmer of Hope, a book that tells the story of how a group of teenagers raced to channel their rage and sorrow into action—and went on to create one of the largest youth-led movements in global history. Joined by actor and activist Sophia Bush, these students bring their urgent conversation to Seattle to offer us a chance to come together and take action and work to create a safe and compassionate nation for our youth.

Moderator: Sophia Bush is an American actress, activist, entrepreneur, and global education access advocate. Bush is a member of the Directors Guild of America, and has appeared in films and series such as Incredibles 2, One Tree Hill, The Hitcher, John Tucker Must Die, and others. She uses her personal platform and social media influence to raise awareness to fund causes, including the construction of schools in Guatemala and Laos, as well as serving as a global ambassador for Glamour’s The Girl Project.

 

Featuring Parkland Shooting survivors Alex Wind, David Hogg, and Jammal Lemy.
