[ARCHIVED] Statement from Council Chair Dannielle Glaros on “National Walkout Day” in Prince George's County

This morning students from schools across the country, including Prince George’s County, participated in National Walkout Day.   In a call for action that inspires Americans of every age, they left their classrooms for seventeen minutes to remember each life lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, peacefully protest, and call for tighter gun restrictions.  As we remember all the lives lost to gun violence nationally and locally, we are especially proud of our participating Prince George’s County students for finding and using their voices as a catalyst for change.  Only together can we strengthen our community and the Council looks forward to the community building work of our County’s newest activists in the days and years ahead.
