Patty and Manny Oliver speak on the tragic death of their son Joaquin, who was killed in the shooting that occurred on February 14th, 2018 at MSD High School in Parkland, Florida. Ever since Joaquin’s passing, they have turned to art and activism to ensure their son’s voice stays in the forefront of the gun violence prevention movement. Patty and Manny discuss how to remember the beautiful moments and how to live on in this midst of tragedy. Through their foundation Change The Ref, their ultimate goal is to give the young generation of survivors and victims a disrupting voice to help lead the way to change – a more peaceful future.
