The Parkland survivors are continuing their activism by making their voices heard on a new platform: the graduation stage.
Teen activist and Parkland survivor David Hogg tweeted last week inviting others to join him in spray painting their caps orange to show support for gun reform.
In a follow-up tweet, Hogg recommended an alternative for students who couldn’t spray paint their caps.
“For those of you that want to participate in #OrangeCaps but can’t spray paint your caps, you can print out a price tag and tie it to your tassel,” he tweeted.
The price tag for each state can be found on the landing page for March For Our Lives and represents the amount of money politicians in each state take from the NRA.
“We’ve calculated the price of each student in states across the country, based on the millions of dollars politicians have accepted from the NRA,” it reads. “If your state doesn’t have a price tag, that’s good news. It means that your politicians aren’t taking large sums of NRA money. Instead, use the national average price tag to show your support for reforming our gun laws.”
Many high school seniors are joining in and showing their support.
Major props to David for keeping the movement going — we’re excited to see what you accomplish post-graduation.
