National School Walkout is a movement powered and led by students across the country. They’re protesting congressional, state, and local failures to take action to prevent gun violence.
Mass shootings happen far too frequently in America, and we as a nation have become numb to seeing the news. After each one, the same cycle takes place: the media spend less than a week on the story, politicians offer their “thoughts and prayers,” and nothing ever changes.
But after the horrific massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, young Americans are taking matters into their own hands.
On April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, American students will walk out of class and protest. Find an event at a school near you, or start your own here:
