Walk Out Wake County. Your Voice Matters.
This petition had 531 supporters
Just within recent months, Wake County has been engulfed in alarming threats placed upon both our schools and its students. Just to name a few -- Heritage, Enloe, Garner, Sanderson, Wakefield, and many more -- and it is in grievance and tragedy that we, students of Wakefield High School in Raleigh, North Carolina, strive to influence a revolution within our school system.
No longer can we remain silent and simply neglect the existence of gun violence, but we must challenge the very ideals it is built upon.
No longer can we dismiss the countless lives lost.
We must advocate for the safety and protection of students everywhere, and begin to understand that guns DO hurt people.
We call you, Wake County Board of Education, to listen to our concerns, recognize the passion and support Wake County students feel for this cause, and publicly back our walk out on either March 14th or April 20th at 10 am.
We call students and faculty to walk out of school for 17 minutes and protest the right to feel safe and to show the nation that students can be the change!
It is time to take a stand. Be with us and sign this petition NOW!
We are with you Parkland.
