You’ve been invited to watch President Joe Biden sign the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the most significant gun law passed in decades.
“So excited that we will all be at the White House on July 11,” said Christina Delgado.
Santa Fe’s mother has been working with the families of victims and injured survivors of the May 18, 2018 shooting at Santa Fe High School. Delgado said she knew she had to act when her daughter, then in 7th grade, asked her how she could go to school safely.
Delgado is joined by Rhonda Hart, whose daughter Kimberly Vaughn was killed when a classmate opened fire in her first art class.
Flo Rice and her husband Scot were also invited to the White House signing. Flo, who was an arts substitute teacher that day, was seriously injured in the school shooting.
Rosie Stone also plans to accompany the group. Her only son, Chris Stone, was also killed at school.
This small group, made up of both Democratic and Republican voters, has been working tirelessly since May 2018 to bring about change and prevent gun violence like it witnessed at Santa Fe High School.
“Now we can say to our children, our families and our fellow survivors that we have taken a monumental step forward in ensuring these lives we have lost have not been wasted,” Delgado said.
