On Wed., March 14, exactly one month after the deadly attack at Stoneman Douglas High School, Lynn students participated in a nationwide school walkout.
Planned and hosted by three undergraduate students, David Czarlinsky, Baylee Howe and Lourdes Rubero, the walkout demonstration lasted exactly 17 minutes - a number representative of the lives lost just 24 minutes away from the Lynn campus.
Led by students, the short program featured a moment of silence, as well as speeches that explained the purpose of the walkout. Through their words, the group of Fighting Knights advocated that Congress pass legislation to keep students safe from gun violence in Florida schools.
All attendees of the demonstration had the opportunity to engage in fundraising activities, such as the selling of #MSDStrong wristbands as well as the signing of a "#Enough" banner.
