Edited by : Christina Ann

March For Our Lives: Road to Change,” continues its trek towards efforts of ending gun violence and enacting stricter gun laws, making a stop in Roswell on July 30.

A student panel came for a “Town Hall” meeting at Eagles Nest Church, to guide and encourage fellow students to speak out and collaborate for a common goal.

Kyrah Simon Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and Joey Lopez, a student at Centennial High School moderated the panel.

Lauren Hogg is a rising sophomore at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She and her brother, David Hogg, now a graduate of Stoneman Douglas, are survivors of the Feb. 14 mass shooting.

The younger Hogg was on the panel, alongside Bria Smith, student from Northern Milwaukee; Antoinette Tuff, an Atlanta teacher who survived a hostage situation and talked down an armed gunman; Matt Post of Montgomery County Students for Change; Chapel Hill High School Student Nora and Centennial High School Student Marielle.

Hogg strived for young adults to “R.E.V.” or “Register, Educate and Vote” towards that.

According to Hogg, giving people a voice and listening “is one of the main reasons we’ve gone on this tour.”

“People turn to the streets because they have no other option. It’s time we change that and give our youth hope.” says , Nurah Abdulhaqq of March For Our Lives, Atlanta.
