The Parkland students who committed themselves to taking action to prevent gun violence in the U.S. organized a multi-city bus tour called “Road To Change”. It’s purpose was to encourage voter registration and turnout, with the hope that the newly empowered voters will turn out of office those officials who refuse to address the gun violence issue. The tour’s final stop was in Newtown, Connecticut, the site of the Sandy Hook elementary school attack nearly six years ago. Activists David Hogg and Bria Smith reflect on the tour and about what’s next.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
