In solidarity with the National Walkout Day, students across the Chicago-area walked out of their classrooms to protest against gun violence.

The 17-minute march — a minute for each life lost in the Parkland shooting — is intended to pressure U.S. Congress to pass gun control legislation.

At Evanston Township and Oak Park and River Forest high schools, students, parents and community members marched and held signs to say “enough is enough”.
