Last month's shooting at a Florida High School has spurred young people across the United States into action.

Teenagers have rallied state capitals and Congress and demanded gun control legislation to prevent school shootings. Student walkouts and marches are coming together across the U.S.

DEAR STUDENTS: ACLU OF NEVADA SUPPORTS YOUR RIGHT TO PROTEST

The ACLU of Nevada supports students' rights to free speech, and we want every kid in Nevada to know that they are afforded some protections under the First Amendment, although schools can legally place restrictions on students' free speech to prevent disruptions at school.

We put together this handbill for student organizers, and the ACLU of Nevada is available to do in-person trainings as well. We also ask that any Nevada students who have been threatened by their school with inappropriate punishments just for participating in this historic movement contact us at aclunv@aclunv.org
