On Sept. 15 from 5 to 9 p.m., students and individuals from the community attended Bands & Ballots, a non-partisan voter information concert, presented by March For Our Lives Tampa Bay, to expand the dialogue on gun violence in Curtis Hixon Park. The event had food stands, tents with voter registration forms and performers including: 76 Cut Short, the John Clark Band, Eden Shireen, James Cole, and Nathalie Hernandez. The Students Demand Action club members also attended the event to support common-sense gun laws and promote voter registration. The club plans to set up voter registration booths at Hillsborough and attend March for Our Lives rallies around Tampa.  Marjory Stoneman Douglas students: Sofie Whitney, Emma González, David Miles Hogg, Lauren Hogg, John Barnitt, and Brendan Duff, also spoke to participants at the event and offered their support.
