Thousands of students from around the country are taking part in gun violence protests this week.

It's not just high school students getting involved.

A group of local medical students are participating too.

Medical students at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry donned their white coats for a photo Tuesday as a show of solidarity with the high school students organizing the "March for Our Lives" event planned for later this month.

The students united around a banner with the slogan "Gun violence is a public health issue."

First year medical student Thais Calderon said "This has been an issue." "We will make a statement in our white coats, standing with them and for them."

Several other schools, including Tufts and Harvard have also done a similar photo with the hashtag White Coats Against Gun Violence.
