Area students preparing for National School Walkouts

Students across Thurston County, and the entire country, are preparing to walk out of schools at 10:00 am on March 14th, one month after the tragic shooting and killing of 17 high school students at Stoneman High School in Florida.

Currently, walkouts are planned at Olympia High School, Capital High School, River Ridge High School, Avanti High School, Aspire Middle School,  Washington Middle School, and ORLA.

The organizers for the national protest are the same that organized the Women’s March on January 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Their website lists the following: ” 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.”
