May 12 Student Walkouts


Student walkouts in defense of abortion rights reverberate across the U.S.

On May 12, thousands of students across the country burst out of their class rooms and took to the streets  in protest, responding to a call from Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. From coast to coast, in large cities and small towns they staged angry, defiant demonstrations. Below is a sample of some of those actions.
