The family of slain Parkland student Meadow Pollack was disinvited from speaking at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, DC. The family is not pushing gun control, but rather securing our schools and protecting our children. Meadow’s brother, Hunter Pollack, had prepared a touching and thoughtful speech — which he instead shared in a Facebook Live video online.
Meadow was an 18-year-old senior when her life was tragically cut short along with 16 of her fellow students on Valentine’s Day. The Pollack family believes that her death was because the school was not secured properly and action was never taken despite all the glaring warning signs about the shooter.
Andrew Pollack — whose daughter Meadow was killed at #MSD, tells me his son — Meadow’s brother — is NOT allowed to speak at #MarchForOurLives This is NOT about making our schools safe. This is about far-leftwing, progressive policies.. not safety. Disgusting.

Meadow’s father Andrew has organized a motorcycle ride in honor of his daughter that will take place on March 31. “We are calling for Motorcycle Riders from South Florida to join as one to ride for the memory of the 17 victims of the Stoneman Douglass School Shooting. The ride will take us from Palm Beach Harley-Davidson to the home of Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow, in Coral Springs,” the website rideformeadow.comstates.
Meet Andrew Pollack & his son Hunter. Andrew’s daughter, Meadow, was murdered in Parkland. Hunter was disinvited to speak today at the March For Our Lives. He prepared a beautiful speech about securing our schools.

Similar to other survivors who disagree that the answer to school violence is disarming the population, the Pollack family has been shunned by much of the mainstream media outside Fox News. It is hard to imagine that this is unrelated to their lack of willingness to shill for Democratic policies. Her grieving father was previously subjected to disgusting and hateful backlash online after being pictured wearing a “Trump 2020” shirt.
