On February 14, 2018, a horrific tragedy struck the Parkland community taking the lives of 17 students and faculty members of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. There’s no words to express the emotion across the state of Florida right now. From growing up on the south side of Chicago to the loss of my cousin, Nykea Aldridge, I know firsthand the impact gun violence has on the families and communities of each victim. For that very reason, I will be working with the students of Parkland to share my platform in shining a spotlight on the Parkland 17 and amplify the voices of all Americans who are effected by gun violence daily.
