David Miles Hogg is an American author and student who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 which was described by several media outlets as a possible tipping point for gun control legislation. Hogg also co-founded the March For Our Lives Movement in support of stronger gun violence prevention measures with over 880 sibling events throughout the United States and around the world.
Hogg is known nationally as a gun control advocate and an activist against gun violence in the United States. He is one of 20 founding members of Never Again MSD, a gun control advocacy group led by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students. In conjunction with his gun control advocacy, Hogg has helped lead several high-profile protests, marches, and boycotts. He has also been a target and scapegoat of several conspiracy theories and right-wing accusations. With his sister, he wrote a book titled #NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line that made the New York Times bestseller list. They have pledged to donate all income from the book to charity. Hogg plans to attend Harvard University in fall 2019.
