Lincoln-Way Central Walkout
We are the students, we are the victims, we are change, fight gun violence now! High School students across the U.S.A., the way to fight back is here. There has been too much complacency on the part of politicians when it comes to gun violence. The time to act is now!" - The National School Walkout Change.org petition.On February 14th, a high school shooting took place in Parkland, Florida and resulted in the premature deaths of 17 innocent teachers and students. Still, the government has failed to act and to adequately protect our generation. The National Student Walkout is meant to empower the voice of teenagers. Most of us cannot vote and so our voice is silenced and marked off. Yet, we are the victims of these awful and mindless crimes. Enough is enough.It is time for us to speak out and take matters into our own hands. We as Lincoln-Way Central students are protesting the violence in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters across the nation. We are protesting the same violence that occurs at the places where we are supposed to learn and grow. We are protesting the same violence that results in the average of seven children and teens in America being killed with guns every day (https://eveyrtownresearch.org We are protesting the same violence that has not had any laws put in place to address it. We are protesting school shootings. Wednesday, March 14th: On the one-month anniversary of the Parkland Shooting we the students of Lincoln-Way Central are going to join in the National High School Student Walk Out. We are going to walk out of school at 10:00 AM promptly and voice our opinions for 17 minutes. We will wear orange to symbolize our unity and protest online and in our communities. Sign this pledge if you are willing to support the cause to protect your life and the lives of those you love.

Climate Change & You - One step closer
I am a seventh grader. I know that in 10 years, climate change will be unfix-able. We are running out of time. If when I am 23 climate change will be permanent, WE need to fix the major issue that is looming over our past, present, future: the future of the nation and world. Be the voice that pierces through these clouds. Sign this petition so we can show the world how much we care. Climate Change is slowly taking over, and it is our fault. Even if you don't believe in global warming, we all know something is up. Whatever your opinion, we need to investigate. We need to hold the reins of our future. We need to unite, no matter your beliefs. Global Warming & Climate Change are the topics that separate us and our world. But we can unite. We can unite with our worries for the future. I am a member of American's youth, and I know we need to make a change. I know you need to make a change. The first step is to sign your name below. What does it do? Once we reach victory (once I think we have generated enough people to make a change) a letter I wrote demanding change will be sent to the most crucial leaders (leaders who are related to climate change action). Our letter will be in the 1st priority bin. I am proposing different laws to be passed, such as laws banning Styrofoam at restaurants, laws cracking down on companies that waste the Earth's supply of materials. I am also proposing that leaders supporting new ideas about education about the environment. Education is one of the first steps in making the world a better place. Countries need to education citizens about reducing their carbon foot print etc. This is the first step to making our voices heard. We are the voices. We are the future. Let's get to it. I believe in us, and you should too. Sincerely, Nat S. - Middle Schooler attending a local private school in Washington Dc.
Petition to Denton High school students
Allow Denton high school to walkout in support of Students who lost their lives to guns
Denton high school students should not be punished for exercising first amendment right for gun reform on April 20th at 10 am. Students have been getting suspended for the walkouts, and we would like to work with administration to make sure things go smoothly. since the shooting in parkland, multiple schools have gotten false alarms. People started fearing for the worst. Students called their parents to tell them they loved them just in case. Teachers locked their doors and started preparing to hide their students. We should be worrying about prom and seniors should be worried about graduation, not being shot.
Petition to Central Catholic High School Administration
Allow Central Catholic High School Students to Participate in the National School Walkout
Central Catholic High School students would like the opportunity to participate in the National School Walkout that survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting have requested. The survivors have requested that students walk out of class on March 14th for 17 minutes at 10:00 A.M. EST. The 17 minutes represent the 17 people killed in the shooting. Students would like to participate without the threat of being punished for truancy (being suspended and serving 10 days of detention) or other disciplinary action. We would like the opportunity to gather in our school's gym from 10:00 AM - 10:17 AM. As students, we deserve the opportunity to exercise our freedom of speech and respectfully protest for a cause that directly affects us. Allowing students to stand in solidarity with the rest of the country will create a sense of nationwide unity that will help inspire more action towards creating and passing gun control legislation. Please show your support by signing this petition.
