Students from about two dozen schools plan to leave school and carpool or bus to downtown St. Louis, where they will march around Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley's office at the Old Post Office, 815 Olive Street, to call for stricter gun control, said Anu Akinyede, a student at Westminster Christian Academy and an organizer for Friday's walkout.

Northridge: CTA Vice President Theresa Montaño will join students and her fellow CSUN faculty members, as well as neighboring high school students and community members, for a Speak Out Against Gun Violence rally where supporters will march from the university's Oviatt Library to Matador Square.

College students from more than 2,600 schools and institutions have to go outside of class at 10 a.m. local time Friday, in accordance with organizers that state the activity includes three aims: to hold elected officials accountable and promote solutions to gun violence and promote student involvement in politics.

The protest has been promoted on Twitter by David Hogg, one of the Parkland student activists who have taken on a leadership role following the tragic shooting at his high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas. CBS anchor Jeff Glor characterized the protest as "walkouts across the country".

Despite some snarky marijuana-related comments on Twitter, where Russell and other students promoted their walkout, he still is expecting a large turnout Friday.

The rally's organizers say its goal is to send a message to legislators that advocates for gun legislation "aren't going anywhere".

It's part of a national school walkout day to commemorate the 13 killed in 1999 at Columbine. The National School Walkout will take place at 10 a.m. The Student Government Association at Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach came up with a slogan for the occasion: Be kind.

"The administration has been working with students as they organize this, so that their right to express themselves is respected", Schuster said, noting that most secondary schools in the district have a track-and-field area students will be encouraged to use.

"It seems like mass shootings keep following us throughout our lives", Gise said.

The March for our Lives, a student-led event with a flagship demonstration in Washington D.C.in March, had more than 800 locations across the world.

The campaign was coordinated by a group of high school students from Ridgefield, Conn., following the Parkland shooting.

"We've been dealing with this for 19 years", he said, explaining how he's going to be part of the day's events.

For DeAngelis, these shootings create an unfortunate bond with school leaders across the country.

"Change happens through patience and this fight does not stop after April 20", Murdock says.

While participating, students at both schools were closely and carefully supervised. Others are hosting "get out the vote" drives, helping students to register online to vote if they are of age.

Columbine High School students participated in the first walkout on March 14.
