David Hogg, the Parkland, Florida school shooting survivor, is planning to take a year off after he graduates from high school to work on the midterm elections and help educate new voters.
Rebecca Boldrick, Hogg’s mother, told CNN that he was accepted to the University of California, Irvine.
She said, however, that he “will not be going to college this year because he’s decided to take a year off and work on the midterm elections.”
Boldrick went on to say that her he plans to “get people to vote.”
Hogg became a fierce advocate for gun control after a gunman opened fire, killing 17 people at his high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
He has rallied lawmakers in the capital of Florida and has helped to organize the “March for Our Lives” event last month in Washington, D.C.
During the event, Hogg spoke to hundreds of thousands of attendees.
He warned lawmakers they would be voted out of office if they didn’t take action on gun control.
