Oct 1st in Las Vegas, a year ago today, there was a massacre that we cannot afford to forget.

20,000+ at the Route 91 concert ran for their lives during Jason Aldean’s performance.

It’s been one year and NOTHING has changed at the federal level. It could happen again TODAY.
58 people shot and killed.

Another 480+ injured.

Mothers, grandmothers, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, sisters, sons, nephews, daughters, nieces, lovers.. the victims ages ranged from 20 to 67.

Some of those injured are still going through surgeries to remove shrapnel.
A neighbor I grew up next to in Parkland was at the Vegas concert and told me much later how he has PTSD... the experience of running for your life while bullets rain down. Seeing bodies drop.

He’s in his early 20’s and has a hard time speaking up about what happened.

“Thru all the bullshit I den been thru I’m just glad I can say I made it to see 17”

We can’t continue to accept the slaughtering of our future. We must end Gun Violence.
Armond, described as a “helping hand child” is 1 of the 110 murders in STL this year — half have suspects.

On the #RoadToChange we met w/ a STL homicide detective and they spoke against lax gun laws + lack of funding in these communities at a town hall.

Armond should be alive.

We need to actively seek solutions to the gun violence epidemic in this country because when our “leaders” protect their wallet more than they protect our lives — we need new leaders.

We can end gun violence.

What a disgrace for our country that students are murdered in school.
Remembering Martin, 5 months after his death.

The @UtahGunExchange following my friends & I around the country, only to invoke fear in their home state, should be considered domestic terrorism.

STORY TIME:

Incase you didn’t know I am one of the organizers for #RoadToChange and we are currently traveling through TX organizing youth meetings, rallies and town halls.

These counter protests at our events are incredibly invited because they allow us to clarify our message.
In Dallas the Facebook event for the protest of us had a few hundred people RSVP’d — there were around 20 people standing outside open carrying in protest... When I first walked up I was being harassed by a few protestors.. but one man in a red hat approached me peacefully...
The protester asked about David, reiterating NRA talking points and conservative slander of him, but only a few sentences into how he felt about David. @davidhogg111 walks up and joins the conversation... The protester is smiling so big and shakes David’s hand.. convo continues..
