What Happens When Teens 'Pick Up The Reins And Protest'

Mar 12, 2018

Student activists have taken the lead on conversations about gun control after last month's school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Their calls to action have spurred youth demonstrations across the country, including here in Kansas City. How are teenagers organizing so effectively, and what should parents know about their own kids' interest in social activism? Today, we get answers from family psychologist Wes Crenshaw, and three area high school students.

  • Wes Crenshaw, family psychologist and author
  • Nicole Ahn, Free State High School senior
  • Violet Amouak, Free State High School freshman
  • Jackson Barton, senior and editor in chief of the Free State Free Press
