The walkout is student-led. On the event's Facebook page, organizers said they wanted to "show our solidarity with our peers who couldn't walk out of school that day."

Organizers encouraged students to wear orange, the color of the gun safety movement.

The walkout is not affiliated with Hall High School, administration, or any other student organization.
