Photo Story: March For Our Lives

10/21: Survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting offer a glimmer of hope.

|

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. Town Hall was proud to offer these students a platform to speak to our community, share their experiences, and and discuss Glimmer of Hope, the book exploring the stories and struggles of the March For Our Lives movement and its founders.

If you’d like to revisit the evening’s discussion, or if you weren’t able to make it to the event, take a look at the photos below, taken by Libby Lewis, or check out this recording of the livestream.

So many of our audience members were excited to pick up copies of Glimmer of Hope. Community action groups, youth activists, and engaged citizens alike came to sit in for the evening’s conversation.

The seats at Temple De Hirsch Sinai were packed—but the audience listened intently as the Parkland survivors spoke.

David Hogg, Jammal Levy, and Alex Wind stepped up to tell us about the founding and mission of March For Our Lives.

Actress and activist Sophia Bush joined David, Jammal, and Alex as a moderator, guiding the discussion and asking provocative questions.

After the event, the Parkland students met with community members for photos, book signings, and more intent conversation about ways we can take action and combat gun violence in America.
