BY JOHN BOWDEN - 03/14/18 11:04 AM EDT

Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez issued a statement Wednesday praising thousands of students nationwide for walking out of class to protest gun violence.

In a brief statement, Perez called the protests by students from colleges to elementary schools "profoundly inspiring."

“It is profoundly inspiring to see millions of students across the country organizing and demanding action to end the epidemic of gun violence. As they keep reminding us, thoughts and prayers are not enough; now is the time for action," Perez said.

Perez went on to criticize the National Rifle Association (NRA) for "cruel and callous indifference" to America's epidemic of mass shootings that most recently saw 17 students and faculty killed at a Parkland, Fla. high school.
