LAKELAND, Fla. – Join KXL Wednesday evening for a very special Town Hall.
“Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action” begins at 6 p.m.
The high school school shooting in Florida has sparked a renewed call for lawmakers to take action, even though some of the loudest voices demanding change are not yet old enough to vote.
Now, led by the students, the south Florida community is demanding answers about how such a tragedy could have occurred, and are asking what steps will federal and state authorities take to prevent it from happening again.
So far, Florida Rep. Ted Deutch, Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Marco Rubio have accepted an invitation to participate. CNN anchor Jake Tapper will moderate the event.
