The activists beyond the “Resistance” to Donald Trump’s Inauguration are urging students nationwide to walk out of classes on Friday, January 17, 2017.
The College Fix reports:
A student socialist group has organized a nationwide walkout on Friday to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, fearing the new president and his party will “unleash a storm of attacks” on various segments of the American population.
The National Student Walkout Against Bigotry & Hate is organized by Socialist Students, a campus arm of Socialist Alternative.
In Providence, Rhode Island, the walkout in public schools is being organized by Youth In Action, Inc. and Providence Student Union, each of which are 501(c)(3) entities. City leaders announced that there would be no discipline beyond an unexcused absence for students who walk out of classes, as WPRI 12 reports:
City leaders aren’t officially supporting a student-led plan to walk out of high schools Friday during President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. But they aren’t attempting to stop it either.
