David Miles Hogg is an American author and student who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 which was described by several media outlets as a possible tipping point for gun control legislation. Hogg also co-founded the March For Our Lives Movement in support of stronger gun violence prevention measures with over 880 sibling events throughout the United States and around the world.
Hogg is known nationally as a gun control advocate and an activist against gun violence in the United States. He is one of 20 founding members of Never Again MSD, a gun control advocacy group led by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students. In conjunction with his gun control advocacy, Hogg has helped lead several high-profile protests, marches, and boycotts. He has also been a target and scapegoat of several conspiracy theories and right-wing accusations. With his sister, he wrote a book titled #NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line that made the New York Times bestseller list. They have pledged to donate all income from the book to charity. Hogg plans to attend Harvard University in fall 2019.

Memorial Walk and Vigil: We Remember
Memorial Walk and Vigil
6:30-8:30pm – Storke Plaza to Anisq’Oyo’ Park
(Gather at 6:15 to commence walking at 6:30)
In commemoration of the five year anniversary of the May 23, 2014 tragedy in Isla Vista, Associated Students invites all community members to join us for a Memorial Walk and Vigil on Thursday, May 23, 2019.
We will gather at Storke Plaza at 6:15, at 6:30pm we will walk together into Isla Vista, pausing at the Love & Remembrance Garden and continuing on to Anisq’Oyo’ Park, where we gathered for the first anniversary vigil. The vigil to commemorate the lives lost will begin at 7:30pm and include remarks, music, and opportunities for reflection. Candles will be provided, but everyone is encouraged to bring their own. After the vigil, refreshments will be provided in the Community Room.
We recognize that there have been many other traumas that our community has experienced since 2014 and we hope that these events will be spaces where everyone can be in community. Everyone works through tragedy in different ways and we want to acknowledge and honor the importance of caring for ourselves and encourage all of us to avail ourselves of the many resources in our community.
