Students across the country will walk out of their classrooms on Election Day to vote as part of an event organized by more than 25 youth-led activist groups, according to the Hill.

National School Walkout, 50 Miles More and March For Our Lives worked together for the Future Coalition.

Parkland, Fla. shooting survivor David Hogg helped organize the event and said it’s “about working together for a better future.”

“On Nov. 6, the voice of young people in this country will be heard loud and clear when we cast our ballots together,” Hogg told The Hill in a statement. “You will hear us marching to the polls, and you will see the impact we have when we cast our ballots. And we’ll make this impact because we’re not afraid to work together to make it happen.”
