Nationwide School Walkout
March 14 • 10:00 am
After the horrific Feb. 14, shooting in Parkland, Florida, the brave high school students who survived the attack became political activists fighting for safer gun laws — fighting for their lives and the lives of students across the country. Those passionate students have been talking to politicians and protesting outside their state capital since, and they’ve even planned a national event. The Nationwide School Walkout, set for March 14, is a peaceful walkout planned by high school students across the nation using the organizational structure of the women’s march. South Eugene High School, Edison Elementary and University of Oregon all have event pages listed on Facebook for the event. We’ll be watching closely to see how this protest affects legislators in Salem and Washington, D.C.
The Nationwide School Walkout is set for March 14 at 10 am at schools across the country. FREE.
