Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear from headliner Jaclyn Corin, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior who co-founded March For Our Lives.

Jaclyn is a student from Parkland, Florida who survived a mass shooting that killed 17 of her classmates and teachers. Less than a week after the shooting, she mobilized 100 of her classmates and brought them on a lobbying trip to their State Capital. Soon after, she continued her advocacy and became a lead organizer of the March For Our Lives, the largest youth-led movement of her time in America. Recently accepted to Harvard, Corin remains in constant contact with student leaders from around the country, organizing local events and voter registration pushes. For a preview of her powerful message, check out this recent Vanity Fair profile.

At Tom Tom, Jaclyn will address an audience of the region’s top entrepreneurial and creative-mind students as part of the Youth Innovation Conference and discuss youth empowerment and what it takes for a group of teenagers to start a national movement.

The General Admission $25 ticket includes a midday meal and access to our third-annual Youth Innovation Conference.
