A survivor of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting wore an orange jumpsuit during National School Walkout Day on Friday, saying she did it because “our schools are looking more like prisons.”

Emma González has become an outspoken gun control activist since the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 people dead.

The article goes on to state the following:

On Friday, González recycled an old Halloween costume inspired by the Netflix television show “Orange Is the New Black” (OITNB), which is set in prison.

“This prisoner jumpsuit was my Halloween costume 2 years ago (OITNB) but I wore it today because our schools are looking more like prisons and bomb shelters and less like the learning institutes our parents had the privilege of enjoying,” González tweeted.

 

Gonzalez had gone on a rant last month against new school safety measures implemented at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this spring, which included requiring all students to use clear backpacks. She claimed that it made the schools feel like a prison, or as if students were being treated like “prized pigs.”
