Recognize Seventeen Year Old for His Work

    1. Petition by

      Dylan Wade

At the age of sixteen, Caleb Laieski, went to Washington, D.C. to advocate for the SNDA and safe schools for all young people. He met with over 200 offices in less than a month and even got more co-sponsors on the bill.

He recently met the President and Vice President and he deserves to be recognized for his courage.

Below, is a link that gives more details on his time in DC and his accomplishments leading up to his trip.

Given the courage, strength and determination this young man has demonstrated, I strongly recommend that he be awarded and recognized for his work.
