“White privilege is staging a walkout for gun control and having colleges and Universities say you will not be punished and your admission won’t be changed, when the same was not happening for Ferguson and Baltimore school walkouts...White privileged is not a curse word. It’s not meant to blame or shame anyone. It’s a lens to understand how race works in this country."Read More
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.” - William Faulkner
To every student who participated in yesterday’s Walk Out:
We heard you.
We saw you.
We believe in you.
We will fight with you.
For all of us.
We will not give up.
We are so inspired and moved by the powerful protests across the country yesterday. To the students, our future leaders, thank you for your courage! You are making a difference!
And an additional thank you to the teachers and parents who supported the students yesterday and every day.

Why are we surprised every time an assault rifle capable of firing 15 to 45 rounds a minute kills that many people? There's no ifs, butts, or maybes, we are done with excuses and BS." She went on to say that, "we are not just asking for shooters to stop shooting, we are asking our government to stop giving them the means to do so!" - Eva Goldfarb, (Member; Women's March Minnesota Youth Empower committee)Read More
