Young Democratic Groups Come Together to Make Their Voices Heard at March for Our Lives Rallies Across the Country

Yesterday, members from High School Democrats of America, College Democrats of America, and Young Democrats of America joined forces to rally alongside Parkland survivors, elected officials, and their local communities to advocate for common sense gun reform. College Democrats of America President Joseline Mata, High School Democrats of America Chair Jeremy Ornstein, and Young Democrats of America President Louis Elrod issued the following statement: 

“Yesterday was just the beginning. Young people across the country are making their voices heard and paving the way for a safer world free of senseless acts of gun violence. Young people are not only the future, but they are the present. The ability for this generation to lead and enact change has never been more evident than it was yesterday at marches across the country. But the work does not end here. As leaders of the largest young Democratic organizations in the country, we are committed now more than ever to electing Democrats in 2018 and beyond who will pass legislation that will protect students from gun violence and stand up for the voices of youth voters. Tomorrow, we will act and seek the change that’s been long overdue.”
