Standing With The Students Of Kenwood Academy

Just came from the Kenwood Academy walkout, I’m so proud to stand with these incredible students who have brought such passion, eloquence, and organizing prowess to the gun debate. Their idealism stands in stark contrast to the cynicism of our politicians, as exemplified by Governor Rauner’s veto of the gun dealer registration bill yesterday. I was also extremely heartened to hear the organizers call for similar protests around school closures. These kids are living proof of the kind of citizens our public schools and our communities are capable of producing when we properly invest in them.
