March for Our Lives and #Vote16

Imiloa Borland and Hayden Hawkins — two of our Youth Talk Back participants — designed and implemented their action plan to organize the March for Our Lives of Honolulu to protest gun violence and advocate for tougher gun laws.  Their efforts were featured here in Civil Beat.  The very next year, they launched the #Vote16 initiative to lower the voting age to 16 and uplift youth voice.
