More than 1 million people descended on the National Mall and cities across the country on Saturday for March for Our Lives, a movement led by high school students from Parkland, Florida, advocating for stricter gun laws in the wake of the mass shooting at their school six weeks ago. Igor and guest host Chelsea Parsons, vice president of Gun Violence Prevention at CAP, were on the National Mall and spoke with a few of them for this special bonus episode. Daniel Konis, a freshman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shares his experience of the shooting in Parkland; Caitlyn Caruso, a senior at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, who had friends working on the Las Vegas strip the night of the shooting last year, talks about the backlash she received for becoming a vocal advocate on gun reform; and Jacobi Crowley, the youngest African American Oklahoman to run for state-elected office, explains his decision to run after graduating from college and his advice for other young people thinking of doing the same. Correction: This episode, and the above description have been updated to clarify that Caitlyn Caruso was not on the Las Vegas strip the night of the shooting, but had friends who were and received updates throughout the night from them.
