Updated 10:03 a.m. Monday: Montgomery County High School students are expected to meet Monday night at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the Valentine’s Day shooting by a former student that killed 17 in Parkland, Florida.

U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin announced Sunday night on his Facebook page that he and U.S Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida have arranged for a group of visiting Stoneman Douglas students to “interact with students from high schools in Montgomery County who wish to express their support and solidarity.”

According to the post, the meeting in the Blair auditorium will begin at 7:30 p.m. It is limited to high school students in the county and students must register to attend.

“America’s high school students are still processing the trauma of the Parkland massacre. I am grateful that my friend Congressman Ted Deutch offered to come with the Parkland students to Montgomery Blair High School to meet my young constituents, who have been so inspired by the moral courage and intellectual toughness of the Parkland community,” Raskin said in a prepared statement.

Since the shooting, the Florida students have been marching and speaking out against gun violence and urging state and national lawmakers to enact tougher gun control laws. Their efforts have sparked protests and walkouts nationwide by students who support the Florida students.

On Wednesday, roughly 1,300 students walked out of Montgomery County high schools including Blair, Richard Montgomery in Rockville, Thomas S. Wootton in Rockville, Walter Johnson in Bethesda, Einstein in Kensington and Bethesda-Chevy Chase and traveled to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., to rally for stronger gun control laws.

“Your hands. Our blood,” a sea of teens chanted on the lawn of the Capitol.

Raskin was on hand to greet the students when they arrived.

“I want you to know that America’s high school students are leading a revolution against political complacency and collusion with the NRA,” Raskin, a Takoma Park Democrat, told the students, who were joined by others from around the metropolitan area. “And I want you to know that you are not only acting in solidarity with the students from Parkland … but you are acting in the finest tradition of America’s young people who have always stood up to change America when nobody else would do it.”
