Generation Lockdown — March For Our Lives

A chilling PSA from McCann and March For Our Lives depicts the harsh reality that kids like Kayleigh are the experts when it comes to gun violence. In fact, 95% of US students practice active shooter drills. #GenerationLockdown

Mixer Brian Goodheart on his approach - "We felt like the realness of Kayleigh's speech was the most effective way of conveying the reality/horror of what kids are dealing with, so we were careful to preserve the raw, natural qualities of her voice in the mix."
