Tulsa Area Students Taking Part In Nationwide Gun Violence Protest

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Students across the Tulsa area and the U.S. will walk out of class Wednesday morning, to protest gun violence.

Wednesday marks one month since the deadly shooting in a Parkland, Florida high school.

These walkouts are well organized and led by students and most of the demonstrations will be happening around 10 a.m.  

The list in the Tulsa area includes Nathan Hale High School, Broken Arrow High School, Carver Middle School and Tulsa Union Public Schools.

The plan for most of these walkouts is for students to walk out of class for 17 minutes, one minute for every student killed in Florida on February 14th.

Leading the walkout are students at Stoneman Douglas High School, who started the movement  lawmakers to pass tighter gun laws.

"I wanted people to know that Stoneman Douglas will be the last school this happens to, we wanted to make a change, we want to be the generation that changes everything," said Julia Brighton, a student at Stoneman Douglas High School.
