Jaime was one of 17 students killed that day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Grieving, Fred found himself unable to stand still. The day after the murder, he attended a vigil and while there was asked to speak. That was the start of a new public life for Fred. Channeling his anger into action, he is now devoting his life to advocating for public safety. A native of Long Island, Fred says his Jewish upbringing instilled in him a commitment to family, service, and standing up for others - values he imparted to his own children. Matt Gutman, an ABC News Chief National Correspondent joins Fred for a conversation about speaking out, fighting back, and challenging elected officials to do more.
