Suggestions To The Students Of Parkland School For Organizing Going Forward.....

Listening to the speeches being giving by these students - I must say they do their teachers proud. These students are very eloquent and are stating their case very cogently.

Going forward I'd like to see these students work to organize an effort that becomes even more formidable. As youths - they have all the energy and time to do an effective job and when they become serious about an issue - they have the ability to keep on pushing.

I would like to start off in this thread some suggestions that I have that can make their mission more effective and I hope that others here on DU put forth some additional suggestions.

Form committee's of students and give each committee a mission:

Committee 1: to research out and better understand all the anti-gun groups in the U.S.
- review the websites of all these groups to determine their main goal or mission
- gather all the names and contact info of the principals of each group
- contact these principals and attempt to establish common ground
- organize a summit of all these groups
- push to unite as many of these groups under on umbrella as there is strength in numbers

Committee 2: determine all the State and Local politicians that support gun reform
- seek out all those state an local office holders and those seeking office and contact them
- support these people and get them to support you

Committee 3: determine all the State and Local politicians that are pro-gun
- put them on notice that the students will do everything in their power to unseat them
- formalize that notice in written form

Committee 4: garner support from parents, relatives, neighbors, etc; organize a voter registration program in the State
- register Floridians to vote; initiate a massive GOTV program

Committee 5: contact other high schools in the State and get them to work along with this program

They have received money from some very important people - they have the dollars to take this mission forward and as they do they have the ability to raise even more money to achieve their mission.

If you have any additional suggestions for these students - please list them here in this thread. If someone has the ability to get these suggestions to these students that would be appreciated.

These are just a few suggestions that I put forth to the students of the Parkland School to help them better organize going forward. I must say they already are doing a wonderful job and I trust that they will keep it up. I'm probably being to brash to even begin to make these suggestions - but I do believe in their mission and feel deeply about the effect that this horrible experience has had on them and their parents.
