Back to school in the age of school shootings

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida sparked a youth movement for change across the nation. In part two of our School Shootings in America podcast, we speak to teens in Seattle to see how they’ve been inspired to take action, and why this event was different than the ones before.

Why now? What inspired these students to get involved in one of the nation’s most controversial policy debates, and what keeps them going? 

In part one of this podcast last week, we heard the accounts of Danielle Gilbert and Monique Miquel, two survivors of the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
