KSJC will be participating in the National School Walkout (#nationalschoolwalkout) on March 14th. Parents, Families, Students, and Staff are encouraged to wear orange that day to support the movement. During this time, we will have letters to sign and send our California representatives to Washington and our state and local elected officials in support of stricter gun control laws. We will also have pre-voter registration drives for anyone that fits the state requirements and is 16 years or older.  Finally, we will have community banners for community members to sign to show support and solidarity with our fellow students and educators around the country. #Enough

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.

Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school.

Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day.

We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020.

Join us in saying #ENOUGH!
