Episode 43: Michigan Students for Gun Legislation
In this episode Kelly speaks with three high school seniors from Kalamazoo Central High School in Michigan--Jenna, Jake, and Julia--about a group they founded, with several other students, in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, called Michigan Students for Gun Legislation. The group started a petition called "Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won't," which has collected over 170,000 signatures, and traveled to Lansing to speak at a rally for gun legislation and meet with their state legislators to discuss gun laws. They are organizing voter registration drives for area high schools and are planning to participate in the March 14 walkout and the March for Our Lives and are encouraging other students throughout Michigan to join their cause.
