On March 14th, students all over the United States walked out of class to mark one month since 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
Some students marched and others contacted government officials to ask for action against gun violence.
In Reno, McQueen High School student Noah Christensen was suspended after calling the office of Congressman Mark Amodei, who represents Nevada’s Second District.
An Amodei staffer said the student was disrespectful and vulgar.
But after the ACLU intervened and the story got national coverage, the school reversed the suspension.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
