Students Make Their Voices Heard on National School Walkout Day

Posted March 15, 2018 in Articles

Students Make Their Voices Heard on National School Walkout DaySaint Martin de Porres high school students participated in Wednesday's National School Walkout. Our students walked out of our Lausche Avenue school at 10am, walking to St. Clair down to East 61st Street, stretching down St. Clair as far as they could from our doors to show that they want to reach all our community and not just our school. Our students focused on the issue of gun violence in our neighborhoods, that they deserve safe neighborhoods, safe schools, safe routes to and from school....emphasizing the violence needs to stop.

Students and staff showed support outside for 17 minutes in remembrance of the 17 people who died tragically in Florida. The students made signs that went beyond gun violence, and included concerns like supports available for mental health, and a call to end racism. The community showed their support in full force as cars, trucks, EMS, and many others drove down St. Clair honking their horns in support of our school community.

Our students were encouraged during the rally and after to share their voices and continue the momentum of making a difference in our communities. The goal moving forward is to continue to get students & families signed up to vote, to get them to participate in the March 24th "March for Our Lives" here in Cleveland, and to continue to get in contact with our local representatives and stay politically engaged. #SaintMartinStrong
