Grade school and college students alike are expected to ditch class Wednesday morning to demand tougher gun laws from politicians after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre.

At least 3,000 protests from Washington state to New York will kick off at 10 a.m. local time and are slated to last 17 minutes — a minute for each victim killed during the bloody shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month.

The demonstrations will range from a reading of victim names, lobbying lawmakers for improved background check regulations to registering to vote. Even students in Hawaii will host a scattering of rallies in support of gun control legislation and an end to firearm violence, according to organizers behind the Women’s March.
