The student activists, who've gained national attention following the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., urged the media to keep the national spotlight on gun violence and not let their tragedies fade away.

They described their personal experiences, how their experiences compare, why they decided to speak out, and the change they’d like to see.

They also addressed common misconceptions about young people today. In an era when schools are searching for ways to promote civic engagement and student voice, these teens provide powerful examples.

The high school students’ conversation on guns, violence, school safety, and activism was moderated by Education Week Staff Writer Evie Blad.

This panel took place at the Education Writers Association National Seminar at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. EWA’s National Seminar is the largest annual gathering of journalists on the education beat.
