National School Walkout photos from around the U.S.

Students across the United States demanded action on gun violence and school safety in walkouts Wednesday, March 14, 2018, one month after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The demonstrations for the National School Walkout also memorialized those killed in the Parkland shooting, with students leaving class for at least 17 minutes — one minute for each of the dead.
