Prof. Sizemore serves on panel to encourage activism
In a story about the April 20 walk out by Pittsburgh students to mark the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, WESA-Radio quoted Tiffany Sizemore, assistant professor of clinical legal skills, who was among panelists at a forum held in conjunction with the day's events.
More than 100 Pittsburgh students marched out of their school Friday and stood in Market Square for 13 minutes in memory of the people who died 19 years ago in Colorado's Columbine High School Shooting.
The forum included state Rep. Ed Gainey, Rep. Dan Frankel, Shanon Williams with Ceasefire PA and Sizemore, who supervises Duquesne Law's Juvenile Defender Clinic and Education Law Clinic. The participants explored topics like gun control reform and ways students can get involved in policy before they are old enough to vote.
