Students at Evanston Township High School are planning a mass walkout on March 14 in support of gun legislation in the wake of the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Evanston Now has learned that the student senate is soliciting suggestions from the ETHS student body for actions they might take in concert with other schools in the area.
The March 14 walkout is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m., according to information received.
The student senate is inviting students to attend a planning session at the school this week to brainstorm some action steps in support of the protest effort.
Students at schools all across the country are organizing similar efforts to put pressure on state and federal government leaders to take steps that would discourage mass shootings at schools and elsewhere.
The issue is likely to be the subject of public comment at tonight’s meeting of the District 202 School Board at 7:30 p.m. at the school, located at Dodge Avenue and Church Street.
