Pace University students hold rally to honor Parkland victimsPosted: Updated:
Students at Pace University held a rally on campus Wednesday to honor the students killed in the Parkland, Florida, shooting.
There was a moment of silence and then students read the names of the 17 victims.
Lindita Kulla, student organizer, says she believes it's not just an issue in Florida, it's for all students everywhere. She told News 12 it is up to the students to make the change they want to see in society at large.
"I think that by working together and coming together as a community as students, I feel like we can create active change. And as a body of students that have the ability to create this change through voting and through our voices, I think that we can do a lot," says Kulla.
Kulla says that members of the school's political action center talked to the students about how to get involved. She says students were able to sign up to vote.
Members of the school of education, including future teachers, also attended and spoke about the events in Florida.
