In the face of inexplicable tragedy, Parkland shooting survivor Emma González’s refusal to succumb to victimhood has upset the status quo. Emma's voracious appetite for gun reform has propelled her into the role of antagonist to legislators and an inspiration to our embattled youth.
As we collectively bear witness to this teenager’s evolution, from an ambivalent high school senior to an Extraordinary Woman Making History, here are some of her most memorable moments since being thrust into the public eye:
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show: "I knew I would get my job done properly at that rally if I got people chanting something.”
Emma confronts Dana Loesch, spokeswoman for the NRA and resident Wicked Witch of The West.
Emma delivers a soul-stirring speech at the March for Our Lives rally.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS/PITCHES:
April is Stress Awareness Month and we want to hear your best ways of dealing with stressors, any precautionary tales of how they can affect the body, what your self-care looks like, and/or anything else related to acknowledging that stress is real and necessary to manage.
April is ALSO Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In light of recent events with sexual assault in the entertainment workplace being brought to the forefront and fully addressed, we want to address this issue taking place everywhere. We're accepting personal narratives, essays, poetry, prose, and any other type of writing that gets your point across about sexual assault. Because of the nature of the topic, we are willing to publish Anonymous pieces. We are accepting submissions & pitches from EVERYONE. We mention this because men and non-binary people have just as poignant voices and stories to tell about their own experiences but sometimes shy away from sharing due to toxic perceptions that hand out shame versus compassion. Our platform is a safe space for everyone so feel free to submit/pitch.
Please send all pitches/submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
