Chattanooga Students Leading Change is a organization that started after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. The group has a grounding principal of raising awareness in our community about the issue of gun violence, advocating for common sense gun reform and red flag laws, and accountability from our legislators to talk about gun control with transparency and vote for the people. The students have organized the March for Our Lives in Chattanooga, led walkouts at their schools, launched a letter writing campaign, met with representatives from Senator Corker’s office, and traveled to Nashville in order to meet with one of Governor Haslam’s staffers and other state and local representative urging them to vote against HB 2208. CSLC is planning a trip to DC to meet with Senator Corker and Alexander and Representative Fleischmann. This would be a three day trip from April 18-21, the group is trying to raise money to cover transportation, room and board, and other expenses for the trip. Any extra donations past our goal will be used to fund the student’s future events. Thank you so much for your support.

Thank you for your gracious contribution to help send CSLC to Washington D.C. At the end of the day, this movement is not about us—we would not be able to make the impact that we’ve made without the energy and generosity of the entire community.

Our D.C. trip was a productive experience. We met with Congressman Fleischmann and Senator Corker, both of whom received us well. We also attended the National School Walkout on April 20 and met with student activists from Maryland as well as a Parkland student. In the remainder of our time, we visited the NPR headquarters and the Capitol to learn more about journalism and the Federal government.

Thank you again for what you’ve helped us accomplish. You’re the reason why we’ve had the opportunity to mobilize people around the issue of gun violence. We hope to stay in touch with you as we continue our efforts.

May we honor every life through our actions.

Allen Liu, Chattanooga Students Leading Change (CSLC)
