Having survived one of the worst mass shootings in America, students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, reacted immediately by mobilizing to prevent such an atrocity ever happening again. Through a smart use of social media they created the March For Our Lives movement to put pressure on politicians to change gun possession laws. After a March 2018 rally in Washington DC that was one of the biggest youth-led demonstrations since the Vietnam war era, they organized a tour across America to invite young people to register for the vote.

Jaclyn Corin and David Hogg, survivors of the Parkland mass shooting and among the founders of March For Our Lives, will talk about their experience, about how a mass movement can be created by using social media networks, and about the commitment of young people to really change things.
