In the wake of the senseless tragedy of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Mogul is supporting the Never Again movement built by students: the activist movement has a policy goal to have stricter background checks for gun buyers, and a plan to hold a nationwide protest on March 24th entitled March for Our Lives.
According to The Guardian, "of the deadliest 13 mass shootings, nine have occurred since Columbine". No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, we can all agree that something must be done to stop this horrendous wave of violence that is sweeping the United States.
Therefore, to stand in support of the Never Again movement and the March for Our Lives, we are inviting the Mogul community to participate in our latest campaign, #NeverAgain.
As part of #NeverAgain campaign, Mogul will be holding a Town Hall in Spring 2018 in NYC, which will be a time where a panel of leaders across various industries and policy makers will answer your questions about the ongoing debate over gun control, and what changes need to be made within our community so that these events never happen again.
**In preparation for the Town Hall, we encourage you to share a post with #NeverAgain in the title, expressing what question you'd like for the panel to address regarding gun control at our Town Hall. These will be the questions we ask.**
Sample questions could be:
- #NeverAgain: Do you think tightening background checks and raising the age to purchase a gun from 18 to 21 is the answer to stopping violence?
- #NeverAgain: Are we stripping people of the 2nd Amendment if we fully take away guns, or should we just take away assault rifles?
- #NeverAgain: Why or why not would us following Australia's tactic of taking away guns work for the US?
- #NeverAgain: Could you please let me know how the Democrats and Republicans can work together to find a solution, and to put politics aside?
While we know these questions cannot bring lives back, we hope that through the powerful collective messages on the platform and the important discussion we have at the Town Hall, that we can send a strong message to the government that we demand change for gun laws, and that we stand by the organizers of the Never Again Movement.
Are you ready to post your #NeverAgain question so that it can be asked at Mogul's Town Hall focusing on gun control?
