Cornell Students Unite to Protest Against Gun Violence

Cornellians walked out of their classes and huddled in the snow on the Arts Quad on Wednesday morning to stand in solidarity with protests against gun violence, remembering the victims of the Parkland shooting.

During the 17 minutes of silence for each victim, members of the Cornell Democrats, who hosted the walkout, lined up along the entrance to Goldwin Smith Hall with signs made for each of those killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School one month ago on Feb. 14.
