Arusha Ramaswamy is an eleventh-grader at Fayetteville-Manlius High School who is well aware of the many mass shootings that have recently happened in the country, and said she is scared.
“I would like to say I’m just really angry that we are still, we still have to live in a place where we have to fear going out in public,” Ramaswamy said. “The truth is, I’m kind of scared. I’m a woman of color, so I think that I am one of the demographics who could be potentially targeted.”
To advocate for change, Ramaswamy marches, posts on social media and helps develop projects for Project Unloaded, an organization whose mission is to create a “cultural narrative that guns make us less safe.”
