On Wednesday, March 14, CHAH students, along with students from around the country, participated in the National School Walkout to protest gun violence.  The students walked out of the building for 17 minutes, one minute to honor each of the 17 victims of the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

"The student walkout truly showed how much we feel for those victims and their families," tenth grader Linet Mercedes said.  She added, "We are a family at CHAH and we are powerful."

Her friend, Yhara Ozuna, agreed.  "Students have more power and voice than adults might realize.  We use technology to be informed, not just to post pictures on Snapchat."

The students walked out to Amsterdam Ave and stayed silent for 17 minutes.

"We are fighting for a much greater cause," Linet Mercedes said.
