Students around the country — including many of those within the Palo Alto Unified School District — will be participating in a national walkout to protest gun violence tomorrow. Students say they will leave for the corner of El Camino and Embarcadero starting at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes to honor the 17 lives lost during the Parkland shooting last month and to advocate for stricter gun laws and school safety measures.
Students will not be excused from class, making the decision to participate more difficult and controversial.
