On March 14, 2018 there will be a national school walk-out for 17 minutes at 10 a.m to demand action from Congress and legislatures on gun control policies. Students, teachers, and faculty alike are encouraged to join in on the walk-out as an act of solidarity for the activists of "March For Our Lives" and "Women's March Youth EMPOWER".
Here is their call to action:
"Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship."
"On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.
March with us in Washington DC or march in your own community. On March 24, the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard."
