Parkland Activist To Attend SOTU As Dem Rep’s Guest

The Washington Post reports:

A survivor of last year’s mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., will attend President Trump’s State of the Union address next week as a guest of Rep. Eric Swalwell, the congressman said Friday.

Cameron Kasky, 18, became an activist following the Feb. 14, 2018, school shooting, which killed 17 people. He co-founded Never Again MSD, a group that advocates for stricter gun laws, and helped organize last year’s March for Our Lives protest.

“In the face of unimaginable tragedy, Cameron Kasky has shown remarkable strength,” Swalwell (D-Calif.) said in a statement. “He stands at the forefront of the fight for action to address gun violence.”

Swalwell is mulling a run for the White House. Kasky is openly gay.
