Here’s Everything You Need To Know About the Upcoming Student Protests

March For Our Lives and two student walkouts are planned for the near future.



A wave of student activism has been rolling across the U.S. since the massacre of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. on Valentine’s Day. And while some school districts have indicated they will punish any students who walkout or participate, many colleges and universities have said that protesting will no have effect on students who apply to their schools.

No matter what the ramifications, three big protests are scheduled in near future as students look to turn a school shooting tragedy into meaningful political and social change. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming March For Our Lives and two student walkouts.


Women’s March #ENOUGH National School Walkout. Protesters are encouraged to leave their classrooms for 17 minutes, one minute for every person killed in the Florida shooting.


Wednesday, March 14 in 10 a.m. in every U.S. timezone in the U.S.
