Eau Claire (WQOW) - Students from North High School plan to participate in a nation-wide walkout Wednesday.
The purpose of the walkout, organized by a junior at the school, is to take a stand as students of America who demand change in legislation for a safer learning environment. The walkout will fall on March 14, exactly one month since 17 people lost their lives in Parkland, Florida.
According to a press release, the walkout will be completely silent and peaceful. It will start at 10 a.m. and last for 17 minutes. Students at Memorial High School are planning a similar walkout at the same time.
