Students at a day and boarding school for girls in Connecticut held a sit-in on Wednesday morning.
Females at Ethel Walker School in Simsbury participated in the silent protest on campus.
"If we have been taught anything at Walker's, it has been to stand up for what you believe in with confidence, courage, conviction, and integrity, and that is what we are doing. We will always fight for an end to hatred," Ethel Walker School posted on its Facebook page.
