Bloomfield Hills Students Create and Recap Their Own Political Action Project

This short, student-created, documentary highlights the activism of Engage18 members on the topic of gun control. Events, such as the BHHS Student Walkout and student-planned Oakland County trip to Washington DC for the March For Our Lives, are covered, as well as their legal applications to current events. Additionally, it reviews case law on gun control, interest groups and political party involvement, as well as presidential commentary on the issue. It is to be used as an educational resource.
