The #GunCrisis project: Growing the team and going full-time

Beginning today, will be staffed full-time for at least the duration of this summer, as we continue to seek to develop a permanent model. Please welcome the latest additions to our team.

After serving as editor of the teen-produced newspaper for six years, Johnson has since written for various publications, both print and online. Currently Johnson writes for The Huffington Post.
