CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Providence High School senior in Charlotte wants to stop gun violence.
- Jules Oringel knows two people who survived the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School
- Her organization, Return Home Supplies, sells materials online
- That money goes to other organizations focused on fighting gun violence
Two of Jules Oringel's friends survived the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last year. Since then, she started a non-profit called Return Home Supplies. Its motto: end gun violence because every student and teacher deserve to return home.
The organization sells school supplies online and the money goes to other organizations focused on fighting gun violence, including groups like March for our Lives and Moms Demand Action. She also travels the country to try and spark change.
“No offense to the older generation, but a lot of them have failed us. The legislature is filled with people much older than I am. They didn't make laws that make America safer,” Oringel said. “I have to take action.”
Oringel hopes to continue selling the school supplies from her dorm room when she goes to college next year.
