“I wanted her to tell me how can she change it.”

Two students from a Boston school stood side by side in a crowded auditorium in Washington, D.C., last week and asked a presidential candidate — what would she do to keep them safe from the syringes discarded around their school?

Azariah Harley Long, 9, and Jay’dha Rackard, 10, traveled down to the nation’s capital where they joined leaders and activists from across the country participating in a presidential candidates forum organized by the Poor People’s Campaign.
