The National School Walkout Against Gun Violence

Mar 15, 2018

Students across the country are organizing a school walk out to bring attention to gun violence and school safety. We sit down with high school students from across our region to discuss their views on gun control and their concerns following a number of school shootings. We also discuss student ideas for making schools safer and what they hope the school walk out will accomplish locally and nationally.

Last week we invited student organizers from across our region to talk about The National School Walkout and March for Our Lives events, and their hopes for the future.

Our guests: Philip Gessen, Falmouth High School; Devon Strom, Falmouth High school; Keith Chatanover, Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School; Jack Forrester, Sturgis Charter School; Catherine McGee, Sandwich High School; Isabel Pellegrini, Nauset High School; Myles Pellegrini, Nauset High School.

The Cape Cod group of Grandmother’s Against Gun Violence holds a vigil on the 14th of each month at the Hyannis Rotary.
