The grief and mourning continue for the 17 students and staff killed on the afternoon of Feb. 14 during a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. But something else is happening among the anguish of the interrupted lives of the victims and survivors. Out of the agony, activism has emerged and students from across South Florida are speaking out together asking for stricter gun controls. Here's a list of grief counseling resources available for the community.

The Road to Change has an additional dozen stops across the country and the state, ending on Election Day in Parkland, where Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schoolstudents started the movement. Another group of students from the school is helping put together a gun-control summit in Washington, D.C.

The new tour dates, including one in Miami on Oct. 27 and in Parkland on Nov. 6, have been added onto the Road to Change tour that saw high school students from Stoneman Douglas spend their summer break on multiple bus tours, one around the country and another around Florida, encouraging people to register to vote and show up to the polls.

The tour has been put together by the students who organized March for Our Lives, and like previous dates, the upcoming ones all take place at college campuses — the Miami stop is at Florida International University. The only exception is the Parkland date, with a location yet to be announced.
