West Babylon High School students held a protest outside school Tuesday to speak out against sexual assault.
They say they brought up instances of forcible touching and grabbing by male students to the administration, but nothing was done.
"A lot of teenagers here like they don't feel safe coming to school even though it's supposed to be like a place away from home," says junior Eva Draganigos.
The superintendent of the school responded with statement that reads in part: "As we have done in the past, we welcome a conversation with the small number of students who participated in a walkout about the seriousness of this matter and help them organize a safe way for them to express their thoughts and ideas."
