On March 14 at 9:45 A.M., hundreds of Bellevue West High School students walked out of school to protest gun violence and stand in solidarity with other schools across the nation doing the same.

After exiting the building, students circled around the flagpole in the front of the school with some joining hands. Walk out organizers Darian Draft and Jordan Gross spoke in the middle of the circle and encouraged students to approach gun violence in a bipartisan way.

At the end of the walkout, Draft listed the 17 people killed at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and allowed for a few minutes of silence following. Principal Kevin Rohlfs then thanked everyone for participating.

“I came to the walkout today because gun violence has to stop,” sophomore Savanna Drummond said. “You need to go to school to get an education not to worry about if you’re going to be safe.”

Draft and Gross are planning another walk out for April 20.
