Naomi Wadler Is the New Voice of Change

On March 14, 11-year-old Naomi Wadler organized an 18-minute walkout at her school — 17 minutes to represent the 17 students killed in the Parkland tragedy and one more for Courtlin Arrington, a Black teen who was also shot at her school but whose story never made national headlines. Just over a month later, Wadler found herself onstage at the March For Our Lives, asking the entire country to remember Black women and girls in the fight to end gun violence.
