Everett High students walk out over sexual harassment
EVERETT — Last week, Everett High students marched to raise awareness against sexual harassment and gathered to be heard.
A student who contacted the Tribune and other media outlets said the walkout was organized because sexual assault incidents are being suppressed and harassment is being handled “with slap-on-the-wrist punishments.”
On Thursday, Dec. 16, numerous students walked off Everett High’s campus and marched through parts of north downtown before convening at Clark Park near the gazebo. It appears the walk was organized after a school assembly on sexual harassment was poorly received by the student audience, from what has been described.
