9 Charlotte Area Schools Participating In National School Walk Out This Week


This coming Wednesday, at least 2,545 schools across the nation, and at least 9 schools around the Charlotte area will be participating in the national #Enough National School Workout.

The 17-minute walkout seeks to remember the lives of the 17 people killed at Stoneman Douglas and press lawmakers to specifically support the following legislation items;
  • Banning Assault Weapons & High Capacity Magazines / S. 2095
  • Expanding Background Checks to All Gun Sales / S 2009
  • Passing Gun Violence Restraining Order Law / H.R. 2598 /  S. 1212
  • Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act / S.1856 / H.R. 1556

According to the organizer EMPOWER, “We demand that Congress enact an immediate resolution declaring gun violence a public health crisis and dedicating federal funding to research solutions and implement violence intervention programs. We demand Congress recognize all forms of gun violence, including violence committed by police.”
