IB junior Sydney Soskin and IB sophomore Nina Greenberg attended the March For Our Lives in Washington D.C. in March 2018. They and the teens who helped organize local March for Our Lives events were invited to a roundtable discussion with Senator Bill Nelson, Representative Kathy Castor, and several Hillsborough County School Board members and superintendent Jeff Eakins.
After the conference, they participated in a social action forum focused on gun reform at Temple Beth-El in St. Petersburg.
