March 16, 2018

Meet Katherine Guerra, a 16-year-old Parkland survivor who’s a captain on the school’s debate team.

Here’s how debate has turned the high schoolers into successful activists.

Even if something emotionally makes them shift what they’re thinking about, they can shift right back to it.

Later this month, the Parkland kids will travel to Washington, D.C., for a gun control march that they’re organizing. A sister march is planned for every state.
