Jai's Story

Advocating to stop gun violence isn't new to Jai, he helped organize a local March for Lives in Jersey City in the wake of the shooting in Parkland, Fla. Since coming to Rutgers Jai is taking his activism to stop gun violence one step further and he plans to launch a local chapter of Students Demand Action at Rutgers. Jai, a Criminal Justice major at Rutgers-New Brunswick, wants students to get involved and talking to their local legislature and city officials. Jai wants the Students Demand Action group to work with the New Jersey Center on Gun Violence Research at Rutgers to boost its mission to advance data driven policies to address gun violence.
