Six months after Parkland: 'Even to this day, it doesn’t feel real'

Aug 9, 2018

School shootings have been a horrifying reality in the United States for far too long. However, after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018, things began to change.

In the first episode of this two part podcast, we will hear what happened on the day of the Parkland shooting from two survivors, Danielle Gilbert and Monique Miquel. They share humanizing details that push us to remember that even though this is their story, it could have been any of ours.


In the second episode, we will hear about the youth-led movements that sprang up nationwide following the shooting, and the teens at the center of one of the nation’s most controversial policy debates.
