GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Just two weeks after the March for Our Lives rally in Greensboro, organizers hosted a town hall putting the spotlight on politicians running for office.
It's part of a national call to action as town halls are held across the country.
"I think it's incredibly important for voters to know who they're voting for, specfically their ideas on gun control because it's such an important topic and always has been," March for Our Lives organizer and student, Anne Joy Cahill-Swenson, says.
It was held at the Greensboro Public Library. Organizers say the purpose is to put candidates in a position to answer specific questions about their views on gun laws and schools safety.
Adam Coker, a Democratic candidate for Ted Budd's seat in District 13 was there for the conversation. Organizers say they invited Congressman Budd and Kathy Manning, the other democratic candidate hoping to challenge him in November, but they were both absent.
Steven Buccini, who is running for North Carolina District 59 in the General Assembly, was in attendance, alongside Adrienne Spinner who is running for the Guilford County Board of Education in District 4.
The organizers who put together the event and fielded initial questions were just 14-years-old.
