The debut episode of Real Talk explores the issue of weapons in schools. Caden Fiala and Beckett Nelson-Gardner share what life is like as students following recent shootings in and around Denver’s East High School and the change they’re advocating for at the state Capitol.
Also, two mentors weigh in on their work to address gun violence directly with young folks. Dini Hodge shares why he often brought a gun to school with him as a student and the work he’s doing now alongside Jason McBride at the Struggle of Love Foundation.
