Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) on Friday invited a gun-control activist and Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor to be his guest at President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Cameron Kasky, 18, was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when a gunman killed 17 people on Valentine’s Day last year.

After the shooting, Kasky and several other survivors co-founded the Never Again MSD group to advocate for stricter gun laws. He also helped organize last year’s March for Our Lives anti-gun violence rally in Washington, D.C., that attracted thousands of participants.

The article goes on to state the following:

“In the face of unimaginable tragedy, Cameron Kasky has shown remarkable strength,” Swalwell said in a statement Friday. “He stands at the forefront of the fight for action to address gun violence … I’m proud to have Cameron join me at the U.S. Capitol, nearly one year after he faced a horror no kid should endure at school, to continue this fight, because there is no right more important than the right to live.”
