Students across Michiana and around the United States walked out of school Wednesday morning to protest gun violence.

Teens at all four South Bend Community School Corp. schools, Mishawaka High School, Penn High School, Northridge Middle/High School, Lakeshore High School in Stevensville, and others around Michiana walked out at 10 a.m.

Students then gathered in front of each school, with many wearing orange to represent support for gun control.

Political leaders like Democratic candidate for Congress Yatish Joshi and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg lent their backing to the students.

The protest comes exactly one month after 17 students were killed at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida by a fellow student with a gun.

The #Enough protest is designed to demand lawmakers take action to prevent future tragedies, like an assault weapons ban and mandatory background checks for all gun sales.
