October 27, 2018 was a Saturday, the holiest Jewish day of the week, Shabbat. That morning, Robert Bowers entered Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue with an assault rifle and three handguns. After shouting “All Jews must die,” Bowers proceeded to kill eleven men and women and injure six others in the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history. However, anti-Semitism is unfortunately not just isolated to the Pittsburgh shooting: on K-12 school campuses, anti-Semitic acts jumped an alarming 94% this past year.

March 24, 2018 was my 15th birthday and I am happy to say that I was able to spend it with my friends fighting for something important. I joined millions of people across the city, nation and world to march in protest of the recent school shootings at the March for Our Lives. Our march in Memphis began at Clayborn Temple and ended at the Civil Rights Museum, where we heard from local teenagers about their own experiences with gun violence and how guns have directly affected them.
