OHS Students say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Start: Wednesday, March 14, 201810:00 AM

Students at Oceana High School are leading a #NationalSchoolWalkout prompted by Women’s March Youth EMPOWER. We are calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to participate in a 17 minute walkout at 10am PST on March 14, 2018. We will remain in the halls, clothed in orange, and hold 17 minutes of silence in honor of the victims.

We encourage everyone to take part, whether you are joining to honor the 17 victims, to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods, or both.

We should not have to worry about the threat of gun violence in our school. Staff should not have to worry about the threat of gun violence in our school. Our parents and guardians should not have to worry about the threat of gun violence in our school.

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.
