Student Summit on School Safety featured Stoneman Douglas graduate

Dominican University and Congressman Jared Huffman hosted a Student Summit on School Safety and Gun Violence Prevention on March 18. Bradley Thornton, a 2015 graduate of Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. participated in the event via Skype.

The student-driven conversation focused on ending gun violence and making our schools and public places safer. The event was held in front of capacity crowd in Angelico Concert Hall on the Dominican campus in San Rafael.

Hallie Balch, President of Associated Students of Dominican University, and ASDU Vice President Samantha Hunt appeared on stage with Rep. Huffman.

Media coverage of the event included KPIX CBS San Francisco Bay Area, KQED News, Santa Rosa Press Democrat, and Pacific Sun.

The event was free and open to the public; however, priority was given to students, educators, parents, and guardians. Seating was limited and was filled on a first-come, first-served basis up to capacity.

It was broadcast on Dominican University’s Penguin Radio, and a podcast will be available after the event. If you have questions or need language or ASL interpretation, please contact Congressman Huffman’s San Rafael office at (415) 258-9657.
