One year ago this week, students led the March For Our Lives onto front pages around the country. In the last few weeks, we've spoke with young people in 10 different communities about the many different roles guns play in their lives and how that's evolved since the shooting in #parkland. • This week, in partnership with @gunsreporting, we'll introduce you to these young people, share their stories and the issues that they've spent the last year exploring. • Swipe through to meet Hunter Lee, 18, of Smithfield, North Carolina, Tyrek Marquez, 17, of Hartford, Connecticut, Leah Krevat, 16, of Apex, North Carolina, and 19-year-old Nyasha Magocha of Arlington, Texas. • Reporting by @915wunc's Adhiti Bandlamudi, @wnprnews's Ryan Lindsay and @keratx's Anthony Cave.
