PARKLAND, FL- Peace activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu awarded the students from the March for our Lives movement the International Children’s Peace Prize this week in Cape Town, S.A. March for our Lives was founded by a number of Stoneman Douglas students in the wake of the February 14 shooting that killed 17 in Parkland, FL.  During the ceremony in South Africa, Tutu called the Stoneman Douglas students “true change-makers” in the world.

The March for our Lives students are just the second recipient of the International Children’s Peace Prize in its 15 year history. The other recipient was Neha Gupta in 2014 for her work to support orphaned children in India.
