Thousands of students walked out of schools Wednesday to protest gun violence and those who were banned from doing so found another way to send a message.

From Washington D.C. to California, students marched out of classes Wednesday, March 14 for this nationwide protest.

The day marks the one month anniversary of the mass shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Protestors in Washington D.C. even walked up to the front of the White House to demonstrate their determination for change. Here are some of the most powerful signs from the march.

Administrators at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta threatened to punish students who participated in walkouts. The school was even put on lockdown to prevent students from leaving. Still, they participated in the protest by silently kneeling in the school’s hallways.


Hopefully this powerful message from students is heard from around the world and will spark change in our society regarding gun control.
