More than a month has passed since 17 people were killed in the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
In the weeks since, there have been protests, town halls, meetings and marches (Saturday’s “March for our Lives” brought thousands to Washington, D.C.).
Now, students in the Permian Basin are looking to do their part.
Tonight, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Odessa High cafeteria, students will write letters to congressional leaders urging them to take action to curb school and gun violence.
District officials tell Local 2/Fox 24, that while the meeting is being held at the high school, all members of the community are invited to participate and make a difference.
