The Most Creative People in business 2018

Jaclyn Corin is an activist and cofounder of the #NeverAgain gun-control movement, as well as the subsequent advocacy group, March For Our Lives. Corin was a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, when a former student entered the school with an assault weapon and took the lives of 17 students and faculty members. Following the February 2018 attack, Corin, who served as junior class president, organized a group of 100 Marjory Stoneman Douglas students to travel to Tallahassee, the state capital, to push legislators to support gun reform. (Several weeks later, the Florida House passed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.) In March, Corin and 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, Corin plans to continue her work as a speaker and organizer of March For Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement.
