Student activist group to hold vigil for Waffle House victims

April 25th, 2018 by Staff Report in Breaking News

Chattanooga Students Leading Change, a local group of public and private school students, are hosting a vigil for the four victims of the shooting at a Waffle House in Nashville this Sunday.

The vigil will be at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 29 at the Renaissance Park Pavilion.

Last Sunday, four people were killed when Travis Reinking stormed into the Waffle House in Nashville, nearly naked and armed with an assault rifle. Reinking was arrested Monday

The group, CSLC, formed after the shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school that left 17 dead in February. The students are some of the leaders behind local student walkouts and the March for Our Lives rally in March. Recently, they traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann and staffers for U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander to advocate for stricter gun laws and efforts to combat gun violence.
