There is a nationwide walkout taking place on March 14th at 10:00 AM.
This is a way for students and faculty to show their support of those killed in the Parkland High school shooting. It will last 17 minutes in honor of the 17 students and staff members who were murdered. Students are encouraged to wear orange to show their support of increasing gun control laws.
This walkout was organized by Women’s March Youth EMPOWER. There are more than 185,000 schools participating including EPHS. There is a group at EPHS called “Change is Coming” that has been discussing the logistics of the walkout.
To get more information about this group contact junior Alexa Tessman. The women’s march asked that “all actions be inclusive and non-violent” during the nationwide walkouts.
