Students in San Diego County plan to mark the anniversary of the deadliest U.S. high school shooting with a town hall on Friday.

Thursday is one year since a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 students and staff members.

The reaction to that massacre was a mobilization of students across the country, taking part in March for Our Lives protests and school walkouts. Many hoped the tragedy at Parkland would force significant reforms in U.S. gun laws. So far, on a national level, that has not happened.

The town hall meeting will take place Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy’s Proscenium Theater in Carmel Valley. The community discussion is called "Seeking Solutions In A Polarized World."

Two high school students involved in planning the event, Caroline Zdanowski and Stephan Abrams, join Midday Edition Thursday to discuss what they hope to accomplish with the event.
