Through the lens: Students stand in solidarity against gun violence
April 18, 2023
The UVM chapter of national organization Students Demand Action held a divestment rally April 12, calling for the University to divest their money away from the gun industry. More than 30 students attended the rally.
In addition to the event organizers, speakers at the rally included Ward 8 City Councilor Hannah King ‘22, members of Planned Parenthood Generation Action UVM and a member of Lawrence Debate Union.
Students carried signs, listened to speakers and stood in solidarity with those experiencing gun violence across the country.
I decided to capture this rally on the University green in the form of a photo essay, a form of storytelling through art, to accompany the Cynic’s news coverage on the event.
