A Ridgefield High School student has been selected by a foundation created by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords for its inaugural Courage Fellowship. Lane Murdock helped organized the National School Walkout.
The 28 student leaders will travel to Washington DC next week, for a three-day team building and organizing workshop meeting. The program, launched this year, gives students the resources and opportunities to continue their efforts to improve gun safety laws where they live.
Currently, Murdock works on amplifying young voices who advocate for gun violence prevention.
Courage Fellows will take part in a number of activities where they’ll be provided the opportunity to network, learn from one another and expand their knowledge of gun policy. They’ll also be challenged to create an end of the year “Take-Action project.”
