Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School, who created the March for Our Lives movement for gun control, are on a nation-wide tour called Vote for Our Lives to promote early voting until Tuesday, Nov. 6.
On Saturday, Oct. 27, Emma Gonzalez of the March for Our Lives movement, along with other student activists, visited Parkview Hall on the Modesto Maidique Campus, as part of their “dorm storm” initiative.
By doing what is called “dorm storms” they’re going into residence halls and asking students if they’ve voted if no and to help people get voting locations.
“Today we’re celebrating voting, and a meet and greet for the students of parkland. We have a DJ and catering from Vicky’s and lots of free merchandise to promote voting for this mid-term election, ” said Molly Schantz, executive director of March For Our Lives FIU.
