SCHOOL WALK OUT - ALL SCHOOLS IN SANTA FE
Did you see the news? Over 1,000,000 students in 3,000 schools nationwide took action, watch clips on Democracy Now! HERE.
According to the Women's March Youth Empower Network, some schools in the US blocked exits, locked campus gates, threatened to cancel prom, sent students to detention or suspended them. Multiple students were even arrested for their participation in yesterday’s walkout.
Santa Fe's youth came out - but they're not done. The March for Our Lives is next weekend and April 20 is nearly a month away. Every day students are speaking up and showing up.
