In the aftermath of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that claimed 17 lives, a rising chorus of students nationwide is speaking out at rallies, demanding action from lawmakers and calling out defenders of existing gun policy. We speak to students from Bay Area high schools about how they are mobilizing and what they think needs to change to end gun violence at schools. We'll also hear from a historian of student activism about how youth can inspire social movements.
