Friday marks the 19th anniversary of the shooting at Columbine High School.
But students are planning to do more then just post ‘thoughts and prayers’ on social media. Students are planning a nationwide walkout to protest gun violence and to remember the victims of Columbine. On April 20th at 9:15 AM, students across the Portland area are invited to walk out of their schools and head to Pure Space PDX, 1315 NW Overton ST. at 11:00AM. There will be speakers and peaceful protests. You are encouraged to bring protest signs and ignore counter protests. Student activism is a huge part of promoting change.
