In this era, young activists have been the catalyst for change. The March for Our Lives movement demonstrated how youth leaders of change can affect politics, similar to the youth climate movement. Prior to the March for Our Lives movement, states such as Florida had some of the weakest gun laws, but youth protesters were diligent in making politicians hear their voices. Not only did these youth activists change the conversation about guns, but they convinced their home state of Florida to take action for gun safety, passing 67 total gun safety bills. The March for Our Lives movement may be one example, but it is proof that modern day youth protests will not be silenced in the face of policies and adults, and the climate movement is a continuation of this.
