When it comes to gun violence, people are done with fear being the norm. So are we.
After the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, there was the usual outpouring of anger. But something seems different this time. The anger didn’t fade. Led by the Parkland survivors, it grew into something more powerful – a rallying cry for change that said #enoughisenough.
On March 24, millions of people in more than 830 cities across the world will take to the streets. They're marching to draw a line, to say that things have to be different.
In solidarity with the March for Our Lives movement, WeTransfer presents a series of projects which add something new to the gun reform conversation. Creative minds have the power to change the way we see the world, and we feel that’s needed now more than ever.
So from writers to photographers to artists to filmmakers, we're proud to present these new creative contributions to one of the most important, urgent issues of our time.
