It has been almost three weeks since the Parkland school shooting.

During that time there have been a number of movements in response to the tragedy in an effort to create change and prevent the tragedy from happening again.

"I can tell you, really upset about what happened," said Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School junior Zach Hibshman.

"Schools should always be safe," said Stoneman Douglas junior Adam Buchwald.

Both joined their fellow students in taking charge in demanding change.

They're taking a different approach aimed at future elections. They are using their web skills to create a gun-control contract.

"It's been blowing up," said Hibshman.

Their movement is called "Parents Promise to Kids."

Parents sign a contract promising their kids they will vote for politicians who want stricter gun laws.

"Put children safety over guns," said Buchwald.

Parents then post pictures with their contracts on social media.

"We want changed gun laws, we don't want 19-year-olds to get guns," said Hibshman.

Their message is simple and it's certainly being heard, giving children a voice.
