Indivisible Greenwich Statement Regarding GHS Student Walkout on Anniversary of Columbine Shooting, submitted Monday, April 23, 2018
Indivisible Greenwich applauds the Greenwich High School students who stood with their peers nationwide to protest gun violence this past Friday on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting.
The student movement to curb gun violence in this country is heartening and we hope that they will be an inspiration to our elected officials to take more meaningful action to protect students and others across the country.
We further applaud the GHS school administration for not banning the press from the event and for not prohibiting students from exercising the choice to determine whether or not they would participate in the nationwide walkout.
Indivisible Greenwich is grassroots, issues-focused organization that seeks to protect our democracy and democratic institutions in the wake of unprecedented attacks. We are informed, engaged and concerned constituents seeking results-oriented action at all levels of government.
