May 3 student walk out

Student walkout on May 3, 2019 – communication supports

There are reports that a group of students from Calgary have organized a student walkout for the morning of May 3, to send a message to the newly-elected United Conservative Party and their stance on gay-straight alliances. The organizers are asking students from across the province to join them in the walkout, to reinforce their positions about any potential policy changes.

Organizers are encouraging students to exit their classes at 9:30 a.m. and stand on the sidewalk outside of their school, returning to class at 9:50 a.m. Students are encouraged to bring posters to hold up.
