Why We Need to Fight for Gun Restrictions

Update from The Stranger:

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously to support a student walkout over gun control scheduled for tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Guest editorial from The Stranger, Why I'm Walking Out With Students Tomorrow, by Dr. Kim Schrier. She's a pediatrician who is running against Dino Rossi in the 8th.

From the South Seattle Emerald, another parent, Brenda Williams, speaks up.
As a parent of two Seattle Public School kids, I’ve talked with other parents whose kids describe a deep desire to participate in the 17 minutes of action called for by national student leaders on 3/14/2018. The planned national action provides a platform for student/youth voices and is particularly important to many SPS youth.

While some schools will hold assemblies or conduct classroom discussions, how is SPS leadership supporting the students who will walk out?  Some kids describe the difficult choice they have to make, that of walking out or being punished (ranging from unexcused absences to being barred from playing in that evenings’ sporting events).
end of update
 
If you have older children, tell them to walk out of school tomorrow for 17 minutes.  Just 17 minutes.  (I'm assuming it's harder at elementaries unless parents organize something.)

Let us know what your school does.

Just drove past Ballard High School and saw tons of students participating in the walk out, holding signs etc. Gov Jay Inslee was also present.
