One month after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people, the group Women’s March Youth Empower organized a national school walkout protest led by students and teachers. The walkout participants will observe 17 minutes of silence for the victims.

Schools across the nation, including dozens around Northern California, are planning responses to the coordinated school walkouts. High school students, college journalists, parents and teachers are expressing their feelings on gun control and ways to protect schools moving forward.
