Students across the country walked out of school Friday on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting. Greater Richmond students convened with parents, educators and some elected officials on Brown’s Island, before a march to the state capitol building.
“Today is a continuation of the movement,” said Douglas Freeman High School senior and co-organizer Maxwell Nardi. “One event does not define this. It’s instead a series of events and walks, which will someday and hopefully in the near future lead to significant changes that are needed to fix this.”
