South Florida Schools Participate In National Walkout Against Gun Violence

Students, faculty and staff across South Florida once again participated in a national walkout Friday morning – the latest effort to bring light to what organizers are calling a failure to protect schools from gun violence.

The event comes just over two months after 17 students and staff were killed inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14th. It also lands on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting, when 13 people were killed.

The walkouts will began just before 10 a.m. across the county, with a one minute moment of silence for all victims of gun violence with an additional 13 seconds for the victims of Columbine. 

Participants were asked to wear orange.
