It is the one month anniversary of the shooting in Florida. Both students, teachers, and staff across the US will walk out of their classrooms for 17 minutes to honor the 17 lives lost in the shooting and to call for action against all these forms of gun violence.
The event has been organized by EMPOWER, the youth branch of the Woman’s March, and encourages supporters to use the hashtag #enough and to wear orange to show solidarity. Students and staff will be the only ones to participate in the walkout to ensure safety, but if others would like to be a part of the event, they can wear orange and\or walkout of their workplaces for 17 minutes.
