Ralston Walkout for Our Lives
Start: Wednesday, March 14, 2018•10:00 AM
End: Wednesday, March 14, 2018•10:17 AM
All students, teachers and school administrators are called on to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018. We will be honoring the 17 students who were recently murdered by a gunman at school in Florida, and protesting Congress’ inaction. They must 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, in our homes, and at our 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. Lawmakers must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that addresses the public health crisis of gun violence. We want the government 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!
