In support of Gun Violence Awareness Month, The Rosendale Theatre will be offering the streaming of the documentary Parkland Rising.
Parkland Rising follows the high school students and families who became fierce leaders of a national movement for gun reform following the shooting of 34 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. This documentary goes behind the news headlines to share the personal and intimate stories of the students leading the movement, as well as the families of victims who are working together to create meaningful change. PARKLAND RISINGjoins David Hogg, Jaclyn Corin, Emma Gonzalez, grieving fathers Fred Guttenberg and Manuel Oliverand other emerging youth activists in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy. The film documents their unfolding journey for nine defining months as they channel their anger into action and engage in an epic battle of wills with the gun lobby.
Gun Violence Awareness Month was created in an effort to raise awareness surrounding the issue of needless and senseless gun violence in New York’s communities. The focus of this effort is to lead a bipartisan charge to concentrate annual heightened attention to gun violence and gun safety each June.
