About David Hogg
David Hogg is a survivor of the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. He is among twenty Parkland students who founded Never Again MSD, a gun-control advocacy group, and he is a founding member of March for Our Lives, one of the largest youth-led movements in the world. In his advocacy for ending gun violence, he has traveled the country calling for voter participation, civic engagement, and social activism. He and his younger sister, Lauren, are co-authors of the bestselling book #NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line and contributors to the book Glimmer of Hope: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement, a compilation of writings from the founders of March for Our Lives. A recent graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, he has received letters of acceptance from several universities, but he has chosen to take a year off to work on the 2018 midterm elections and to continue his activism on gun policy reform.
