Alex Wind is an American student activist against gun violence. A survivor of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and a founding member of the Never Again MSD movement, he is a critic of politicians who are supported by the National Rifle Association. Wind was one of five Stoneman Douglas students featured on the cover of Time magazine in 2018.
Wind was included in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2018.
In a speech televised internationally at the March for Our Lives protest in Washington on March 24, 2018, Wind criticized people who think that "teenagers can't do anything", and he cited examples of young people from history including Joan of Arc and Mozart. He criticized the idea of arming teachers as a defense against violence, saying that if "teachers start packing heat, are they going to arm our pastors, ministers, and rabbis?" He insisted that young people must vote in the upcoming election. Wind urged people to contact their congresspersons and ask them to declare their stance on gun control and not accept campaign contributions from the NRA, and to petition lawmakers to take steps to end gun violence.
Wind is currently a student at Penn State University, where he studies Musical Theater. After graduation, Wind plans to continue his work with March For Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement, namely by mobilizing young voters and reaching out to other youth groups for collaboration and partnerships with March For Our Lives.
