Students participate in nationwide walkout to honor school shooting victims, advocate for gun law reform

On Wednesday, March 14th, GCAA was one of the schools throughout the country to participate in the March For Our Lives walkout. In this demonstration, students honored the lives lost in the school shootings since Columbine, focusing on the 17 deaths from Parkland Flordia’s Stoneman-Douglas shooting.  They also advocated for reform of gun policy.

In the walkout, Patra Patton, senior, gave a speech to the students commemorating students lost in school shootings and called for politicians to take action in preventing future shootings.  Afterwards, Imani Smith, 8th grade, read a poem she wrote featuring a student’s school day being interrupted by an intruder.
