Mahoning Valley Sojourn to the Past students are organizing a seventeen minute school walkout/rally in memory of the 17 killed in the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. This walkout/rally will be held simultaneously at all three Youngstown City School District high schools: East, Chaney and Early College at 10 AM on March 14, 2018. The purpose of the walk out/rally is to support the students of Stoneman Douglas High School and to ask Congress and the Ohio General Assembly to pass legislation that bans assault weapons and also requires background checks for anyone purchasing a gun. We are asking students, teachers, parents, the YSU community to join us at one of the three locations.

The students at Stoneman Douglas High School have requested that schools across the country have a 17 minute walkout on March 14, which is one month after the shooting at their school.

Please contact our advisor, Penny Wells, director Mahoning Valley Sojourn to the Past (330-207-4467, if you have any questions.
