The MFOL founders will stay until the last person is through the line, as long as their travel schedules permit.

Phoenix Books will also donate a portion of book proceeds to the fund.**

ABOUT THE BOOK: GLIMMER OF HOPE: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement (on-sale: October 16, 2018) chronicles the events of February 14th, 2018, and the creation of March for Our Lives from the founders of the movement, including Emma González, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, and others. Through first person essays and oral histories, GLIMMER OF HOPE shows how and why these students and alumni of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School persevered during their grief. It is a raw and honest look at a tragedy, and demonstrates the power a small group of people can wield.
ABOUT THE MOVEMENT: March For Our Lives was created by, inspired by, and led by the students of Parkland, but has since curated student allies of all ethnicities, religions and sexualities across the country. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to assure that no special interest group or political agenda is more critical than the timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country. March For Our Lives demands morally-just leaders to rise up from both parties in order to ensure public safety.
