Ep 70 - Student Walkout Organizers

Loretta Donoghue, a 16-year-old junior at Brunswick High School, and Chelsea Donovan, a 16-year-old junior at Tuscarora High School, joined host Colin McGuire and News-Post reporter Allen Etzler to discuss what it was like organizing two very different school walkouts. 

Donovan organized a school walkout that featured more than 350 students leaving the building, where they chanted "Enough is enough" as drivers passed by and honked to show their support. 

Brunswick students stayed indoors, but walked out of class, in part because Donoghue wanted the walkout to be as "bipartisan" as possible, and not split people based on their political views. Students filled the auditorium and wrote letters to send to legislators about changes they wanted to see made.
