Kathleen hoang


My name is Kathleen Hoang from Cypress Lakes High School and I am the Co-Executive Director of March For Our Lives Houston. I joined the movement because I was angry that so many young Americans had to go to school fearing for their lives and in the hopes that I, along with the many others in this organization, could create a powerful, diverse coalition of youth to demand sensible gun policy that saves lives.

Co-Executive director


Hi! My name is George Tataris and I am the Co-Executive Director of MFOLH. What initially drew me to the organization was my desire to do something that would better my community. It is absolutely sickening to see hundreds of gun violence victims lose their lives each year when they could have been saved by common-sense gun laws. I hope you will join us in our mission for a safer and more equitable community!
