Get to Know the Students Demand Action Advisory Board: Ade Osadolor

A current freshman at the University of Chicago, Ade decided to join Students Demand Action after constantly seeing the injustices of gun violence in minority communities. She knew that as a Black woman she had to make a change to better our society.  Ade has been part of Students Demand Action since 2018 and has helped organize voter registration booths at her high school. She formed part of a student walkout after the Parkland shooting that helped bring awareness to the gun violence prevention movement while remembering and honoring the lives that were lost that day. This summer, Ade was a leader of the Virtual Field Office in Texas, a volunteer for the text and phone banking team, and she also participated in the summer of actions to register people to vote and bring awareness to this movement. She is excited to continue her work in the gun violence prevention movement and create a meaningful impact in our society.
