8th Grader Attends Round Table Discussion on Gun Violence

Balloon Experiment

On February 23, Worth Junior High 8th Grader Andelina Hindhaugh attended a round table discussion with Marie Newman, candidate for the U.S. Representative for Illinois's 3rd Congressional District at Fox's Pizza in Oak Lawn. The round table discussion was organized for high school students and the topic was gun violence. Although the event was set up for high school students, Andelina wanted her voice to be heard and found a way to get herself invited to the event. Andelina was among approximately 25 teens from the area who attended the event who engaged in discussions about guns in schools, recent school shootings, mental health issues and what teens can possibly do to address these challenges.
