Vocal gun control advocate and Parkland high school massacre survivor David Hogg unveiled his newest effort to increase restrictions on gun in the U.S. Wednesday.

Here’s what Hogg is planning

Hogg tweeted that he’s co-writing a book whose proceeds will be used to “heal the community.”

“Today @lauren_hoggs and I are announcing our book #NeverAgain that tells the story of the foundation of this movement for those we lost,” he tweeted. “Lauren and I will be using the money made from the book to help heal the community.”

His fourteen-year-old sister Lauren Hogg added that the proceeds will also go towards preventing gun violence.

“Announcing #NeverAgain, a book by @davidhogg111 and I that tells the story of how we turned our grief into action and how we fight and speak out for those who no longer can,” she tweeted.

“All proceeds going to healing Parkland and to prevent gun violence,” she added.

The book is described as a “manifesto for the movement begun that day [of the Parkland massacre], one that has already changed America–with voices of a new generation that are speaking truth to power, and are determined to succeed where their elders have failed.”

“With moral force and clarity, a new generation has made it clear that problems previously deemed unsolvable due to powerful lobbies and political cowardice will be theirs to solve,” the book description declares.

Hogg has been a vocal and contentious figure in the national youth movement for gun control begun in the wake of the Parkland school massacre. He has not shied away from using vulgarities against the NRA and politicians while declaring that he’s going to “change the world.”

Beyond boycotts

Hogg had tried to force Fox News’ Laura Ingraham off the air after she mocked him for not being accepted into the colleges he wanted to attend. Although many advertisers left the show, Fox News stood by Ingraham and her ratings appear to have recovered.

Hogg then announced a boycott on Tuesday against financial investment companies who have holdings in gun manufacturers and retailers, while campaigning for more student walkouts across the country.
