George Clooney and his wife Amal are putting their money where the mouths of student activists are. The actor and the human-rights attorney are donating a half million dollars to students organizing rallies against gun violence.
The couple says they were inspired by what they call the “courage and eloquence” of students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Days after being shaken by an assault rifle attack on their school, they turned from survivors to activists speaking in favor of gun control and against the sale of weapons that can turn school classrooms into a killing field.
Clooney says he and his wife will be attending the protests planned for the next month.
