On Wednesday, students at schools across the country are walking out of their classes for 17 minutes—one minute for each student killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, exactly one month ago. Protesters are demonstrating on college campuses and in front of the White House and Congress in Washington.

From elementary school through college, students are speaking up—even during moments of silence—through their powerful signs. Here are just a few of the most stirring protest signs.
