Columbia Students Stand Up and Say #Enough

Students participate in the nationwide walkout to protest the lack of action around gun control.

On Wednesday, March 14, Columbia College Chicago students joined high school and college students across the country for the #Enough National School Walkout to advocate for gun reform. Before the students dispersed, they took a prolonged moment of silence to honor the 17 lives lost in last month’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Student Sara Jaffe partnered with the Student Government Association to organize the walkout at Columbia. 

Like many others across the country, Columbia Photography student Kelsy Goodwin captured the images from the day.

Hundreds of schools participated in the walkout and many more on social media posted messages and pictures with #Enough.

Faculty, staff, and alumni also voiced their support for the students via social media. Senior Associate Provost Suzanne Blum Malley, Senior Director of Enrollment Marketing Communications Andrew Whatley, Television faculty member Brent Kado, Business and Entrepreneurship faculty member and craftivist Shannon Downey, and many others all shared their support for the students and the #Enough cause.
