Where Are The Parkland Students Today In Their 2 Month Bustour....

of the country to register young voters?

Unfortunately this 'children/parent separation' issue is taking all the oxygen in the news and these Parkland Students are not getting the coverage they should be getting in their effort to stop guns.

If you happen to be in a city that they are at today or coming to in the near future - please keep us informed of their whereabouts and their mission.

They started their tour in my city of Chicago about a week ago. I posted that here on DU - but I haven't seen much about them since then.
