The student activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who survived a school shooting last month and then used the harrowing experience to ignite a national debate on gun control, are scheduled to speak at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School next week.

On March 20, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky, and several others will take part in a panel discussion called, “#NEVERAGAIN: How Parkland Students are Changing the Conversation on Guns,” according to event details.

The discussion, which will be moderated by Meighan Stone, a fellow at the Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy, will detail the work the students have accomplished since Feb. 14, when 17 students and teachers at their high school were killed by a former student.
