Westerville City Schools March 14 and April 20 protests

This petition had 571 supporters

We, the Students at Westerville City Schools, are going to participate in a 17 min walkout at 10:00 AM on March 14 and an organized national walkout on April 20, also, taking place at 10:00 AM.

The students of Westerville City Schools are going to participate in the nationwide protests for gun reform and school safety on the above mentioned dates.

March 14 will be the one month anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. shooting. We will commemorate the lives of the 17 victims by walking out of the school at 10:00 a.m. for 17 minutes. One minute for each life lost.

April 20 is the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting. We will host a national walk-out followed by student speakers and, hopefully, leaders of our community. We will meet at a pre-determined location where we will give anyone a chance to speak if they so desire. 

We, respectfully, request that the administration allow us the ability to peacefully protest without consequence. 

We understand that these protests are disruptive to the staff and security of our schools, however, as citizens of the United States it is our right to peacefully protest any injustice that we feel affect our lives. 

We hope that we will have the support of the administration.  

If anyone wishes to help organize or wants to speak on April 20 then contact Liam Eadie of Westerville Central H.S. Liam's twitter: @stem_lem
