SPEAKER: Isabella Segall

Isabella Segall is from Wilton, CT, 16 years old, and is the founder of ConnecticutTeens Against Gun Violence, an organization allied with Connecticut Against Gun Violence. Isabella organized the Feb. 2018 rally at Ridgefield’s Ballard Park after the Parkland High School mass shootinghttps://goodmorningwilton.com/wilton-16-yr-old-organizes-meeting-for-teens-against-gun-violence/

After learning about the Parkland shooting, Isabella said: “I looked at my dad, and said, ‘We have to do something. I can’t sit here anymore and watch all these children die or get hurt in these shootings.’”

At that Ridgefield rally last winter, she said, “This is not a world I want to live in—where faith is deemed a better solution than taking action, where risking your life is a daily activity; a world where buying an AR-15 rifle, a machine made for killing, is as easy as ordering the parts and assembling it at home…the way to honor the many victims of these violent shootings, is by doing something – not by sitting at a computer, liking FB posts”
