Honored to earned the distinction of being named a 2022 Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate. As a mother and candidate for school board, safety is #1. As we continue to address prevention as a community, we need to center effective approaches to keeping schools safe from gun violence which are focused on preventing shooters from getting their hands on guns in the first place, implementing threat assessment programs and security upgrades, and responsibly planning for emergencies.
