March For Our Lives Austin

After losing my childhood best friend to suicide via gun in October of 2017, I realized the gravity of gun violence in American culture. Since then, I've helped organize March For Our Lives Austin and various Town Hall For Our Lives events. In addition to my organizational events, I've spoken and served on panels at various events including the Texas Candidates for Gun Sense press event and the San Antonio Road to Change event. I spend a lot of the time at the Texas Capitol building testifying for common sense gun legislation and working with politicians to find ways to prevent gun violence from having such a toll on our society. Check out my Medium article on how we can prevent firearm suicides here.
