This first-ever partnership between Freeform and ABC News delivers these incredible stories through the lens of ABC News’ award-winning journalism, whose producers have been embedded in the lives of these Parkland students since the tragic event.
Hosted by award-winning journalist Elaine Welteroth, former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, the program will provide an intimate look at the student-led meetings with state lawmakers, the resumption of classes at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since the shooting, the national school walk-outs, culminating with the “March For Our Lives” in Washington D.C.
Throughout the special, a series of “explainers” from media company ATTN: will air to help provide context to issues being addressed by the student activists. These four fact-based interstitials will address topics such as the state of gun laws in America, semi-automatic weapons, and the importance of young adult involvement in the decisions of our country.
“For Our Lives: Parkland” is produced by senior executive producer Jeanmarie Condon and executive producer Steven Baker from ABC News. Eric Johnson serves as supervising producer.
