Parkland Anniversary: Fred Guttenberg Honors His Kids by Fighting for Yours

In February of 2018, one of our nation’s greatest tragedies struck. In just over six minutes, a gunman armed with an AR-15 entered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida, killed seventeen people and wounded seventeen more. Jaime Guttenberg was one of those killed.

Since that day, her father Fred Guttenberg has been on a mission: to break the back of the gun lobby and reduce gun deaths in America. Along the way he’s made national news by continually speaking truth to power. He’s confronted Marco Rubio, Brett Kavanaugh, and the President* of the United States. He’s changed the national conversation about gun violence, and he joins Alyssa Milano to talk gun violence prevention, finding community through tragedy, and his charity Orange Ribbons for Jaime.
