The S.W.A.T. CBS Cast Shows Support for Make Our Schools Safe
We’re used to seeing them fight crime as members of a highly skilled tactical unit in Los Angeles, but the cast members of S.W.A.T. recently joined together for another important on-screen mission.
On the anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the cast members of S.W.A.T., an American crime television series which airs on CBS, recorded a video meant to help boost awareness for the significance of February 14, 2020, outside of its common association for most.
They take the time to revisit the details of the tragedy and the enormity of the impact that Valentine’s Day 2018 had, not just on the Parkland community, but on the entire country.
From that significant loss came an unprecedented push for change in our school systems, which have been driven, in large part, by the efforts of Make Our Schools Safe.
The video further explains the importance of Alyssa’s Law and its current status in legislation. As Alex Russell (who plays the role of Jim Street) says:
“Make Our Schools Safe and Lori Alhadeff are currently working to get this law passed in Florida and hopefully at the federal level.”
We have made tremendous progress in that regard, with the recent passage of Alyssa’s Law by both the Florida House and Senate. We’re also pushing for the bill in New York, Nebraska as well, with the ultimate goal of passing Alyssa’s Law nationwide.
We’re so thankful to Shemar Moore, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, Jay Harrington, David Lim, Patrick St. Esprit, and Alex Russell, cast members of the acclaimed CBS television show, S.W.A.T, for using their voices to contribute to meaningful change. Your support of Alyssa’s Law is heard loud and clear!
