Boca High Students Chant 'We Want Change' During Gun Reform Rally


Hundreds of students from West Boca Raton Community High School gathered together on Tuesday, February 20, demanding new gun control laws after 17 people were killed at a neighboring school in Parkland.

The students began their protest at their high school before marching almost 11 miles to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The students began chants of “we want change” in response to Florida lawmakers rejecting a ban on semiautomatic and large capacity magazines.
