March 24 Speaking Application
The New Hampshire Social Justice League was founded in February 2018 by students from across New Hampshire. As our generation has grown up, we have seen both incredible progress and abject failure in our society as we strive towards equality, inclusivity, and safety in our schools, communities, and nation. This group was founded with the specific purpose of organizing young people in New Hampshire for action that brings us closer to these ideals. The catalyst for our formation was the activism displayed by the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. We stand with them in our current focus on gun reform in order to end the horrendous cycle of mass shootings in which our nation is currently trapped.
