About thirty young people, ranging from middle schoolers to college students, met up in the parking lot of the Lee County School District building. They packed their bags into vans that’ll take them to the March For Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., Thursday.

The Lee County School District and the Lee County Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday that schools in the county will have bolstered security by the time students return from Spring Break. This comes less than two weeks after Gov. Rick Scott signed the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act”  and a day after a Maryland school shooting. 

Florida House of Representatives

Democratic politicians from Parkland – the town that’s home to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School – held a teleconference for media Monday morning.

Florida Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, and U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-FL, said that Florida Republican gubernatorial candidates Ag Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep DeSantis, R-FL, had less-than-desirable responses to the Valentine’s Day school shooting that left 17 dead.

Moskowitz asserted that Putnam didn't visit the high school after the shooting.
