Today, some of our students took action to demand gun reform. They lead their own walkout to advocate for state laws S2292 to ban assault rifles and S2289 to prevent anyone but police officers from entering schools with a gun. To quote one eighth grade leader, “We are here to say no to violence, no to fear, and no to guns. This is how we protect our communities. This is how we win”
