The Martin Luther King jr Freedom Center expresses our solidarity to the families and citizens of Parkland, FL, who have lost children and suffered excruciating trauma in the brutal terrorist act at Stoneman Douglas High School.
While these school based killings generate in all of us a desire for prayer and healing, we demand legislative action that will help stop domestic terrorism.
We demand legislative action to:
- Control automatic and semi automatic weapons and handguns
- Create equitable and restorative school disciplinary practices
- Integrate the community into public schools and construct positive working relationships between educators and the community
- Curtail use of screen-time and social media with flagrant violence and hatred
