Emma González

Cofounder, March For Our Lives | Parkland, Florida

The Most Creative People in business 2018

Emma Gonzalez is an activist and cofounder of the #NeverAgain gun-control movement and subsequent advocacy group, March For Our Lives. Gonzalez was a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, when a 19-year-old former student entered the school with an assault weapon and took the lives of 17 students and faculty members. Following the attack, Gonzalez became a galvanizing figure in the effort to spur social and legislative change around gun safety, delivering rousing speeches and organizing, with a group of her peers and survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, 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.

Gonzalez plans to attend New College of Florida, and will continue her work with March For Our Lives.
