Mary Helen Barro joins hundreds of fellow educators and families at Bakersfield’s March for Our Lives to support students’ campaign for sensible gun control legislation as well as a safe school learning environment. A safe, gun-free classroom is a key reason why Mary Helen is utilizing part of her teacher pension to kick-start her campaign to represent the families of the 23rd Congressional District. “Our students deserve a safe school environment, where they and teachers can focus on learning and preparing students to fulfill their life’s desires,” says Barro.
CSUB Professor Gonzalo Santos and Mary Helen Barro both attended rally to support the campaign for safe schools.
Student march leaders recite the names of each of the students who lost their lives in Parkland, Florida as march attendees pledge to never forget.
