The founders of March for Our Lives, the student-led movement against gun violence, have written a book. Titled "Glimmer of Hope," the book tells the story of how a group of teenagers turned their grief and outrage into a one of the largest youth-led movements in history. Survivors of the Parkland, Fla., mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School founded March for Our Lives to amplify the voices of youth and hold politicians accountable for gun safety.

In a Town Hall event on Sunday, Oct. 21, three Parkland survivors will join a conversation about the book, its story of youth empowerment and how the issue of gun violence remains critically urgent in our country. Parkland shooting survivors Alex Wind, David Hogg and Jammal Lemy will attend. The event takes place at at Temple De Hirsch Sinai in Seattle.
