Historical BackgroundReturn to Top

On March 14, 2018 Washington State students participated in a nationwide school walkout to protest gun violence and petition lawmakers to reform gun laws. Several thousand students from Roosevelt and Nathan Hale high schools, University Prep, Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Bush School marched to the University of Washington and assembled in Red Square. Mayor Jenny A. Durkan, Seattle City Council members including Teresa Mosqueda and Lorena González, and several students from Roosevelt High School addressed the rally calling for common sense gun reform and encouraging students to register to vote and make their voices heard. The impetus for this event originated with the mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018, which took the life of 17 students. Students took it upon themselves to seek legislation for gun reform following this tragic event. The walkout was supported nationally by the Women’s March Network and locally, by the Seattle Young People’s Project who encouraged students throughout Washington to participate in walkout events. The Seattle School Walkout was also supported by Seattle City Council members and Mayor Jenny A. Durkan through legislation that urged Seattle Public Schools to support its students’ right to assemble and protest Congress’ inaction to end gun violence in the nation’s schools and communities.
