As previously reported, some of the students behind the March For Our Lives event will bring their Road to Change Tour to the Holy City on Tuesday, July 31st. The group recently announced that their Town Hall event will be held at the Sottile Theatre starting at 7 pm.
The tour includes Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students like Emma Gonzalez, Jaclyn Corin, Cameron Kasky, and recent graduates David Hogg and Delaney Tarr. The group's goal is to get young people educated, registered, and motivated to vote.
The summer bus tour grew out of the March For Our Lives event that was held in Washington, D.C. on March 24th. The movement is dedicated to student-led activism around ending gun violence and the epidemic of mass shootings in American schools today.
The current and former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students survived a mass shooting at their school's Parkland, Florida campus on February 14th.
The Town Hall will also include representatives from Lowcountry Students for Political Action. There will be a moderated speaking portion and 30 minutes for audience questions. To register for the free event, click here.
