On February 28, 2018, over 2,000 Green Hope High School students came together to walk out in support of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and gun reform. At 12:00 p.m., students made their way out to the front of the school and walked down to the stadium. Green Hope students wore maroon to honor Douglas High School as well as orange stickers to stand against gun violence, and many students made signs to show their support.

While some students chose to stay in class, the majority of the school participated in the walkout.

The Sophomore and Freshman class presidents reflected on the walk out.

“I’ve never been prouder of our student body than during this walkout.” Raina Lee, Sophomore class president.

“When I saw that huge crowd out there, I honestly felt like I was dreaming. It proved how dedicated Green Hope is to change.” Megan Mou, Freshman class president.

Speakers included:

Megan Mou, Freshman Class President

Megan Sharma and Deb Bhattacharya, former Stoneman Douglas High School and current Green Hope High School students

Erin McIndoe, Junior Falcon News Feed staff member

Morrisville Town Council Member Steve Rao

NC Senator Jay Chaudhuri

Shea Kofkin-Hansen, Junior Falcon News Feed staff member, read a letter of support from Governor Roy Cooper

Reagan Dovel, Senior, writer of an opinion piece published in the News and Observer, read a letter of support from US Representative David Price

Mayor TJ Cawley of Morrisville

Raina Lee, Sophomore Class President

The event organizers hope to affect change and keep up the momentum garnered in the walkout.
