Educate to unify: The urgent need for better civic education in our dangerously divided nation – NY Daily News

Never Again, the activist gun control movement initiated last February by students who survived the Parkland school shooting, has had an enormous impact. Major gun retailers have stopped selling assault rifles and raised the age for buying guns. Major corporations have ended discounts for NRA members. The march to Washington, D.C. that these students organized in March generated massive national support.
