Alex Wind

Cofounder, March For Our Lives | Parkland, Florida

The Most Creative People in business 2018

Alex Wind is an activist and cofounder of the #NeverAgain gun-control movement, as well as the subsequent advocacy group, March For Our Lives. Wind is a survivor of the February 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a former student entered the school with an assault weapon and took the lives of 17 students and faculty members. Following the attack, Wind, a drama club member at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, was one of the first students to speak out about the shooting on social media, and sang the national anthem at a Miami Heat basketball game. In March, Wind and his fellow group members organized the March For Our Lives, which drew more than 1 million people onto the streets of Washington, D.C., and other cities for the largest pro-gun control rally in U.S. history.

As a rising senior, Wind plans to continue his work with March For Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement, namely by mobilizing young voters and reaching out to other youth groups for collaboration and partnerships with March For Our Lives.
