March For Our Lives wins International Children’s Peace Prize.
Thumbs Down 
The March for Our Lives initiators, who
started the American mass youth
movement for safer schools and
communities and against gun violence,
have won the International Children’s
Peace Prize. David Hogg, Emma González,
Jaclyn Corin and Matt Deitsch, received
the prize from Archbishop Desmond
Tutu during a special ceremony held in
Cape Town, South Africa in the presence
of distinguished guests and the world
press. The International Children’s Peace
Prize is an initiative of the international
children’s rights organization KidsRights.
The young winner’s message each year
reaches millions of people worldwide.

During the ceremony, Archbishop
Desmond Tutu, who has been the patron
of The International Children’s Peace
Prize and KidsRights for more than a
decade, said that March For Our Lives is
one of the most significant youth-led
mass movements in living memory. “The
peaceful campaign to demand safe
schools and communities and the
eradication of gun violence is
reminiscent of other great peace
movements in history. I am in awe of
these children, whose powerful message
is amplified by their youthful energy and
an unshakable belief that children can,
no must, improve their own futures.
They are true changemakers who have
demonstrated most powerfully that
children can move the world.”
