Since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14, youth all over the country have been making their voices heard and advocating for reform in gun policies. Although the shooting occurred 2,700 miles away from the Bay Area in California, students here have also been inspired in the movement. Featured in this documentary are: students from Prospect High School who are leading the March for Our Lives San Jose, a town hall hosted by congressman Ro Khanna, Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr and Stoneman Douglas alumni Matt Deitsch, Lynbrook students and the Intersections club creating memorials and discussing gun violence, Lynbrook social science teacher Thomas Hammond who is educating his students about gun violence and the walkout that took place at Lynbrook High School on March 14, one month after the shooting.
