Gun Violence and Youth Activism a Panel Discussion featuring David Hogg, Parkland Student and Co-founder of March for Our Lives
Thursday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m.
David Hogg is an American author and student who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018 and afterward became a gun control advocate and an activist against gun violence in the United States. He is one of twenty founding members of Never Again MSD, a gun control advocacy group led by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) students. In conjunction with his gun control advocacy, he has helped lead several high-profile protests, marches, and boycotts. He has also been a target and scapegoat of several conspiracy theories and right-wing accusations.
Hogg will join a panel discussion with Evanston Township High School student, Mollie Hartenstein, and Youth Program Manager at The ARK of St. Sabina, Lamar Johnson, to discuss gun violence and the role of youth activism to end this epidemic.
