Wilton League Welcomes WHS Guest Speakers
The Wilton League of Women Voters welcomes four student speakers—Isabella Segall, founder/director of Connecticut Teens Against Gun Violence, Grace Bracken, WHS Women’s Activism Club, Elizabeth Yoon, and Vignesh Subramanian, WHS Model Congress—at the League’s monthly meeting on Thursday, December 13, 2018, at 9:30 am at Comstock Center, School Rd. The meeting is free and open to all League members and the general public. The program begins with a short business meeting, with light refreshments, followed by the students’ talk.
Following the mass shooting in Parkland Florida, Ms. Segall was a featured speaker at two major events in CT—the March for Our Lives at the State Capitol and The Road to Change Tour in Newtown this past summer. The marches attracted thousands of participants, including survivors of the Parkland shooting. Ms. Bracken was the 2018 WHS winner of the League of Women Voters Edna Jones Memorial Book Award and is a board member of CT Teens Against Gun Violence. Ms. Yoon and Mr. Subramanian, as members of the Model Congress, volunteered at the LWV’s recent regional debates before the November election.
