March for Our Lives

Never Again MSD

  After a deadly mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida this past winter, students are speaking up and taking action hoping to make change across the nation. Founded by the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, the “Never Again” movement spread across the country and made it to Morgantown through Rebecca Brazaitis, a sophomore at Morgantown High School.

Up to a half-million people were expected in Washington, D.C., Saturday for the March for Our Lives, a demonstration advocating school safety, organized by the survivors of last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Among those planning to join the cause were several student-activists from southern West Virginia.
