After the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people killed, students and educators across the country plan school walkouts to protest lawmakers’ inaction on gun control.

Since a walkout in South Florida on Friday and a Fort Lauderdale rally on Saturday, other walkouts have been planned.




The first march is planned by the organizers behind the Women’s March.

The walkout is scheduled for March 14th at 10 a.m. in every time zone. It will last for 17 minutes for each of the lives lost in Florida.

The statement to promote the event reads, “We need action.”

It continues, “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.”

A second walkout is scheduled on March 24th by a group organized by students called March for our Lives.




Another walkout is scheduled for April 20th. This protest will mark the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting that left 13 people killed.

All the scheduled walkouts have one thing in common: to pressure lawmakers to take action and pass the gun reform to keep their schools safe.
