One of our own from the Urban League of Nebraska Girls STEAM Academy program, Nyaruot, was selected to be a panelist at the March For Our Lives Conference (https://marchforourlives.com/) that was held at the Hilton Hotel. We are glad to see young people like Nyaruot be very much involved in human rights and making a change in the nation.
“The Road to Change kicked off on Friday, June 15 in Chicago, where we’ll be joining the Peace March, led by students from St. Sabina Academy. From there we are traveling from city to city, with more than 50 planned stops in over 20 states including Iowa, Texas, California, South Carolina, and Connecticut. We’ll also hold a separate Florida tour with more than 25 stops, visiting every congressional district. We’re going to places where the NRA has bought and paid for politicians who refuse to take simple steps to save our lives — and we’ll be visiting a number of communities that have been affected by gun violence to meet fellow survivors and use our voices to amplify theirs. At each stop, we’ll register young people to vote and educate them on the reforms we need to save lives, and whether their local elected officials support these reforms or support the NRA.”
