In 2018 at the age of 15 Jake Bongiovi the beloved son of American rock musician Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Bongiovi worked as an organizer the Pennington School’s national student walkout on Wednesday, March 14.Jake and his fellow sophomore Rickey Eng spearheaded the movement at the school to protest about the governments inaction regarding to the mass murders in American schools by shooting. Seventeen students were killed during an unfortunate school shooting in Parkland, Florida on 14th February 2018.

Jersey shore students joined the national school walkout on Wednesday.  The walkout took place on the 1 month anniversary of the school shooting and mass murder of 17 students in parkland, Florida. Students boycott classes for seventeen minutes. Each minute for each of the victims of the parkland school shooting massacre. The walkout was organized by Jake Bongiovi and some of his friends through social media as students pushed the responsible authorities for stricter gun control counter measures. 

Safety concerns were promoted to some school to set aside a designated area for the walkout. Some other was held indoors. Almost 400 to 500 students attended by wearing orange colour t-shirts with #ENOUGH written on the front and Classes take a pause until congress passes laws were written on the back, with the dates of Parkland and Columbine High school shootings.

The Pennington walkout students got the support of the school authority, according to eye witnesses the students gathered in the school gym where the memorable names of the Parkland school shootings victims were read and they created a video message from Gov. Phil Murphy supporting the walkout when it was played. Later after that hundreds and thousands of students walked out of schools across the country on March 14 calling for stricter gun laws.

 Jesse Bongiovi is the older brother of jake. He also gave the full support for his Notre Dame classmates when they walked out of Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement address at the university in May of the year 2017.He raised his voice against that current problem and his speech was “This is not the Notre Dame I’ve known and loved my whole life. Those young people are no different than the young people that stood with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. many years ago. These young intelligent minds are fighting on behalf of who feel marginalized by the Trump Administration and I am proud to say that I am a member of the Class of 2017 from the University of Notre Dame.” And he wrote it on his own tweet. 

Eventually Jake Bongiovi and his friends were able to contact with the governor’s office. They were able to reach out to the governor. They asked him to do something for the movement of Pennington. The governor thanked them for the gathering. The governor said it’s very important that you all do this as the youth of America. Their whole message about the protest to the governor was that “we came together as a unified person” eventually they got the governors support. He assured them he will keep in consider and try to modify the gun law.
