Students march for their lives

March 24, 2018

At 837 marches, communities gathered to protest the lives lost to gun violence. But in Redwood City, it was different. In Redwood City, the rally was for the students, by the students. At the head of the cause was a group of students from the Sequoia Union High School District: Stefan Sujansky, Holly Newman, Sophie Penn, Ria Calcagno, Elise Kratzer, and Katie Uthman. While another rally was already scheduled to take place in San Francisco on March 24, Penn, a senior at Carlmont High School, said bringing the issue to Redwood City would make it more accessible for the community.
