Jury will c1 3 walkout day.

"because we are the generation who will recondition society to hear that we matter."

Students in lexington were among thousands nationwide who participated in national walkout day.

This protest was to bring awareness to school safety... by addressing gun violence and the shootings our country has endured in 20-18 alone.

Lafayette, paul lawrence dunbar, lexington catholic and tates creek high school were among the several fayette county schools participating today.

"i think that's why this rally was so important that we come out here and say to our politicians 'this is the life that we're living and our lives are in danger here' and that's why legislation needs to be passed, something needs to be done."

While some schools across the nation counted students absent or tried to deter them from participating in the walkout... fayette county public schools helped coordinate today's events.

Spokesperson lisa defendall says the district fully supports students' exercising their free speech rights.
