Local students in Detroit and metro Detroit joined the national protest against gun-violence today on the one-month anniversary of the shootings at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
Dubbed “National Walkout Day,” the morning and early afternoon featured rallies at dozens of schools around the area, and WDET reporters were on-site at Renaissance High School, Western International High School, Cass Technical High School, Osborn High School and others to speak with students about what the protests mean to them.

At Osborn High School in Detroit for #NationalWalkoutDay when a teacher approached me with this. Says he found it at the football field where the students were gathering. @wdet pic.twitter.com/NCJKI1WoVO
