On February 14, 2018, Jaclyn Corin’s life changed forever after a massive school shooting took the lives of 17 students and faculty at her school, Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Less than a week after the shooting, she mobilized 100 of her classmates and brought them on a 900-mile lobbying trip to their state capital.

Soon after, she continued her advocacy and became a leading organizer of the March for Our Lives. At the March, she brought Yolanda Renee King to the stage, granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr., where she preached that the young people of today are a part of a “great generation.” Corin helped unite more than 2 million people in 900 marches around the world during the 2018 rallies. The 800,000 people at the Washington D.C. march made it one of the largest demonstrations in the Nation’s history.

Corin is in constant contact with student leaders from around the country, organizing local events and voter registration pushes, and promoting the need for more March For Our Lives chapters. She is the “driving force behind the scenes” of March for Our Lives.

Engage in the Change: Mobilizing a Generation to Protest

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.
