ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Some Missouri universities are encouraging high school and middle school students to join in on protests.

On March 14, thousands of students at schools across the nation are expected to walk out to protest gun violence in schools and press for stricter gun control measures.

In a recent tweet, Washington University wrote:

“We encourage civic engagement. Your acceptance will not be rescinded if you are disciplined for engaging in peaceful protest. March on.”

Wash U, Saint Louis University, Fontbonne, Webster, Lindenwood, UMSL, and Missouri State have all said they will not hold it against high school students if they are disciplined for walking out for a civic issue.
