Parkland survivor helps DNC fundraise ahead of midterms | TheHill

A survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month is now helping the Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraise ahead of the midterm elections in an effort to back lawmakers who support gun control measures.

In a DNC email blast Saturday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Sara Imam urged supporters to not forget the 17 students and faculty who died in the Feb. 14 school shooting and register to vote for the fall elections.

“This week the Democratic Party launched IWillVote — a national campaign to organize voters and get them to the polls,” Imam wrote in the party’s release, which links to the DNC’s voter registration page. Respondents who provide their information are then asked to donate money “to help Democrats win.”

“Voting is the first step toward ending gun violence, so I’d like to ask you to do something important today. Will you add your name right now to commit to vote this fall?” Imam wrote.
