“I’ve learned that is has to be more than just legislation. It has to be community involvement. It also has to be advocating for people who aren’t usually heard and amplifying their voices.”
Bree Butler was propelled into activism after surviving a horrible tragedy. She graduated from Santa Fe High School in 2018, only weeks after 10 students were killed and 13 others were injured in the SFHS shooting on May 18, 2018. But since then she has not stopped organizing and raising awareness about the issue. Bree has worked with organizations like March for Our Lives and The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and is an executive committee member for StudentsMarch.org. Get the full story below.
