Walkouts planned in March in aftermath of Parkland shooting

Walkouts planned in March in aftermath of Parkland shooting

Support continued to grow over the weekend for a planned March 14 National School Walkout protest in the aftermath of the Valentine’s Day school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead. Meanwhile, students at the South Florida school planned a separate walkout on March 24, ABC News reported. >> Read more trending news Organizers of the Women’s March announced the plans for a 17-minute walkout beginning at 10 a.m. on March 14, which will mark the one-month anniversary of the shooting. The protest is aimed at urging Congress to enact laws that will protect schools from gun violence. “Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school,” a message on the group’s website read Saturday. “Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day. We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence.” Support for the walkout, announced Friday, increased over the weekend on social media, with parents and teachers around the country vowing to participate, and actresses like Justine Bateman, Amber Tamblyn and Piper Perabo along with W. Kamau Bell of CNN all offering their support to the planned protest. Meanwhile, some of the surviving students at Stoneman Douglas High School announced a walkout for March 24, called March for Our Lives, ABC News reported. “People keep asking us, what about the Stoneman Douglas shooting is going to be different, because this has happened before and change hasn't come?” Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grader told ABC News. “This is it.” Kasky was interviewed with four of his classmates -- Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind and Jaclyn Corin. “Any politician on either side who is taking money from the NRA is responsible for events like this,” Kasky told ABC News. “At the end of the day, the NRA is fostering and promoting gun this gun culture.” A separate walkout was scheduled for April 20 in honor of the victims of the shooting nearly two decades ago that left 13 people dead at Columbine High School in Colorado.

What to Wear:Volunteers should dress warmly and comfortably for a hard day's work. Clark's build days are some of the coldest of the year, so you will want to layer your clothes and wear something to keep your head warm.

Long pants and long sleeves are recommended as some construction materials can irritate your skin. Bring a pair of work gloves, if possible. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Q: What do I need to bring?A: Nothing. Habitat provides all tools, though if you have a favorite you'd like to work with, see Tools & Equipment below for complete guidelines.Q: Can I bring my kids along to help?A: No, due to workforce regulations, no one under 16 is allowed on site, no exceptions. Volunteers age 16-17 must have a parent or guardian sign their Release and Waiver of Liability.Q: What if it rains?A: Atlanta Habitat works rain or shine, though some houseleaders may decide to shorten the day. After Day 3 there is plenty of indoor work to be accomplished.Q: I have building materials/furnishings/appliances/etc. that I'd like to donate. How do I do this?A: You will need to arrange this directly with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. Please contact them at (404)223-5180.Q: My plans have changed. May I cancel my volunteer slot?A: Yes, but PLEASE cancel online at least one week in advance so we can find someone else to take your place. We work hard to provide just the right amount of volunteers each day, specifically chosen to work alongside Clark. We must assure that there are enough hands to accomplish the day's goals, yet also assure that there will be tools and provisions to go around for all.Q: How is Clark involved?A: Clark has been building Habitat homes in Atlanta since 1996. He uses the money he makes from his speaking engagements to sponsor the homes. Learn how he got involved, in Clark's own words!     AT THE CONSTRUCTION SITE: Tools and Equipment:Atlanta Habitat provides all tools needed for the build. Volunteers are welcome to bring tools, but Atlanta Habitat is not responsible for lost or damaged tools. If you do choose to bring your own, please take time to clearly mark them with your name and phone number. Always use the right tool for the job and ask for instructions before using a tool for the first time. Tools should not be loose, dull or poorly adjusted. Please notify the houseleader if unsafe or damaged tools are in use. Check for defective cords, plugs and switches; do not use anything that is unsafe. Never remove or disable tool guards. Ask houseleader for help if a tool jams. Support materials properly before cutting or drilling. Use both hands (if required) to operate a tool safely, if not keep other hand clear. Never place tools where they can fall on someone or cause an accident, e.g. top rung of a ladder, rooftop, railings. Ladders:Many tasks performed on site require a ladder. Inspect all ladders before use. Set ladder on solid ground. To level, dig a hole on the high side rather than building up the lower side. Use the correct size ladder; never overextend yourself. Do not stretch to the side, instead move the ladder (even if that means re-setting it.) Never stand on top rungs of a ladder. Keep ladder clear of any power lines. Always face ladder and keep hands free while climbing. Safety and Insurance:Construction is considered to be a dangerous undertaking. Volunteers are asked to be as alert as possible to the safety risks. Volunteers under the age of 16 are not permitted to participate or to be present on site for insurance reasons. Habitat carries co-insurance on volunteers, which is activated when the volunteer signs up on site. The insurance will supplement the volunteer's own insurance in case of accidents, and provides basic coverage for volunteers who do not have insurance. First aid kits and insurance claim forms are available from Habitat staff. ALL volunteers must sign in every day that they work; otherwise, they will not be covered under Habitat's insurance.A Clean Work Site:A clean site is a safer work place. As things can quickly pile up, it is best to clean up and put tools away continuously throughout the day.  Do not leave tools or materials where others can trip over them. Organize debris. Please ask the houseleader for direction on what trash may be recycled. Always backdrive or bend nails in boards.    Clark's Atlanta Habitat for Humanity Sponsors  Each year several local and national companies donate their products and services as a way to help our homeowners settle into their new homes more easily. These companies dedicate their time, money and hard work to our home building projects, and, once again, we sincerely thank each one of our generous sponsors:

After latest indictments, President Trump vents on Twitter about Russia investigation

In the wake of a fresh round of indictments in the wide-ranging investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign, President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday and Sunday to repeatedly express his frustration with the probe, again proclaiming his innocence, attacking his critics, and demanding attention instead on actions of the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton.

“I never said Russia did not meddle in the election,” the President tweeted on Sunday morning – though Mr. Trump has been very slow to embrace the concept that Russia was at fault, as he derided the investigations into Russian interference in [More]
