With a heartbreaking school year behind them, a faction of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students involved in the gun reform movement are looking forward to traveling around the nation to get young people to the polls this fall.

About two dozen students from the Parkland high school, where 17 students and school staff were killed Feb. 14 in the deadliest school shooting in Florida, appeared in black T-shirts that read “Road to Change” on Monday to launch a national and statewide summer bus tour to register teens to vote in time for the midterm elections.

The article goes on to state the following:

Cameron Kasky, one of the students leading the March For Our Lives movement that marched on Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., said the bus tour is the movement’s next step to “harness the energy and passion we witnessed on March 24 and turn it into action.”

“We can march, we can bring our politicians into a new light and make sure they are being held accountable, but at the end of the day, real change is brought from voting,” he said. “And too often, voting is shrugged off as nothing in our country.”

About 20 students will split into two bus tours over two months: A national tour will make 75 stops in 20 states, including Iowa, Texas, California, Missouri, South Carolina and Connecticut, and a statewide tour will visit all 27 congressional districts in Florida. Some students will take days off and some will participate in both tours.

The Miami Herald reported that the students will have some help:

The students are partnering with Rock The VoteHeadCountNAACP and Mi Familia Vota to assist with digital and on-the-ground voter registration work and marketing and communications firm Precision Strategies.
