Parkland Students To Make Bus Tour To Register Voters

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — A day after graduating from high school, a group of Florida school shooting survivors has announced a multistate bus tour to “get young people educated, registered and motivated to vote.”

Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are set to kick off March For Our Lives: Road to Change at 10 a.m. Monday. A gunman killed 17 students and faculty at the Florida school on Feb. 14.

A news release sent Monday says the tour will begin June 15 in Chicago, where the Florida students will join the Peace March, led by students from St. Sabina Academy. So far, about 50 stops in more than 20 states have been planned.

The news release says a separate Florida tour will make more than 25 stops, visiting every congressional district.
