On Thursday, May 2 a walk-out was held protesting against police brutality. This was sparked by the incident that took place on April 15, where a student was tackled to the ground by police officers. Students gathered at the school then marched down to Gresham City Hall and the Gresham police station, holding up posters supporting their movement, chanting, and a few students sharing a few of their experiences with police and oppression.
