Across the country on Wednesday, thousands of students walked out of their schools to protest the nation’s gun laws and pressure Congress to approve new legislation. The 17-minute walkout marked one month since the deadly massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that took 17 lives.
Since Parkland, a student-led movement has pushed the nation's gun law conversation to the fore. In addition to Wednesday's walkout, a nationwide protest called “March for Our Lives” is set for March 24.
Witness some of the moving scenes from Wednesday’s youth-led protest.
