Equality Florida will honor Emma Gonzalez, president of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Gay Straight Alliance and one of the many young people advocating for gun control in the wake of the mass shooting. Other student leaders and advisors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Gay/Straight Alliance will also be honored at their annual Miami gala.
GSA sponsors Diane Wolk-Rogers and Mario Caicedo will accept the Voice for Equality Award on behalf of the GSA and their students.
“Students from the GSA at Stoneman-Douglas High School are an integral part of the student-led movement that has been a catalyst for demanding action by politicians to confront gun violence. Equality Florida honors them and their advisors for their leadership, resolve and the clarity of their voices in launching the #NeverAgain movement,” said Nadine Smith, Executive Director of Equality Florida. “It will be an inspiring and moving evening as we celebrate the GSA along with SAVE and the Huizenga Family Foundation – these are the individuals and groups that will make Florida a more equitable, safe place for all of us. We are thrilled to honor their work,” concluded Smith.
