The Parkland shooting has ignited a fire under students across the globe to stand up and demand legislative change. Falcons-here is your chance to make your voice heard.

We are calling for stronger background checks and gun control reform. Gun violence is a strictly American epidemic, seeing as 80 percent of gun deaths internationally take place on American soil. This being said, come to room 60 on Thursday to get your letters started and receive more information. We will be accepting letter all of April, both digitally on our Instagram page @aseatatourtable_ and in person in room 13.
