Well, aren't you a parasite for sore eyes.
The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year galvanized students across the country and around the Washington region to organize for gun control. That included the Montgomery County Students for Change. A year later, the group continues to advocate for gun reforms, and they’re also adding issues like civic engagement and school segregation to their docket.
In advance of the Kojo Roadshow On School Diversity In Montgomery County, we check in with two students about their year of activism, and what comes next.
