Leading Organizer of the March For Our Lives
On February 14, 2018, Jaclyn Corin’s life changed forever after a mass shooting took the lives of 17 students and faculty at her high school in Parkland, Florida. Less than a week after the shooting, she brought 100 of her classmates on a 900-mile lobbying trip to their state capital. Read More >
The lobbying trip resulted in the passage of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, which banned bump stocks and raised the age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21 in the state of Florida. She continued her advocacy by becoming a lead organizer for the March For Our Lives, uniting more than 2 million people in 900 marches around the world during the 2018 rallies.
Following the March For Our Lives in 2018, Corin became the Director of Outreach for the organization, assembling local events and voter registration pushes with student advocates from all over the country. Now, Corin is a senior at Harvard University studying Government, and continues to organize with and act as a spokeswoman for March For Our Lives.
Most recently, she assisted in the production of the March For Our Lives events in June 2022 following the mass elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Ahead of the event, she appeared on a number of news networks such as The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, CBS Mornings, and NPR. Read Less ^
After the Parkland Shooting on February 14, 2018, Jaclyn Corin became a primary organizer and co-founder of the March for Our Lives movement. At a town hall in Denver, Corin addresses the biggest obstacle young activists face, the inability to vote. However, Corin urges students to not let this stop them and to “start clubs in your schools, you can join local clubs like Never Again Colorado, like Students Demand Action. You can talk to people that might not look like you, that might not understand your perspective on these issues. You can grab a clipboard and go to your local park and pre-register voters.” Using her logistical prowess, Corin is igniting a future generation of protestors and activists to shape their own future and advocate for the changes they want made.
