#QueerHeroes Day 2 – Emma Gonzalez

#QueerHeroes Day 2
Emma Gonzalez.

Like too many other Americans, Emma’s life was changed forever by gun violence. A student burst into her school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, with an AR-15. Seventeen people died that day, but Emma made it her life’s work to honor them.

She went on to organize the March for our Lives, as well as the foundation that shares its name, using her platform to call for common sense gun law reform, so that fewer people will have to endure the pain she did that day.

This week, 12 people died in a shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal complex. It was the 150th mass shooting this year, occurring on the 151st day of 2019.
