If there is a silver lining to the 2016 Presidential Election it is this: it woke us up. Generations who have never seen nor expressed true activism in their lifetimes started taking to the streets in record numbers. Those who have seen protests in the 60s and 70s resurrected their voices for change. As the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are exhibiting, the youth of our country are impassioned, unflinching and may be our best hope for a radical shift.
SPARC's next speaker, Professor Hahrie Han, penned a feature OpEd for the New York Times on gun control. She has been also been in the New York Times and the Atlantic on the power of moments and protest. Her particular academic focus couldn't be more relevant than it is right now.
