March for Our Lives

We are in an era when acts of violence have become almost commonplace. We have calls for reform, regulations and more mental health care; we call, we write, we argue, we march. But what no one seems to do is understand or address the factors that lead someone to plan and execute an attack on others. Tune in Tuesday at 2 for a conversation with the Reluctant Therapist, Elizabeth Barrett, about the gaping holes in our social fabric that lead to acts of despicable desperation.

Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of people across the country took to the streets to protest gun violence in communities and schools. Local March For Our Lives events coincided with a national rally in Washington, DC.

Santa Maria in Santa Barbara County was no exception.

Marches and rallies held in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Salinas, Monterey and other Central Coast locales attracted thousands of participants Saturday, calling for gun control and honoring American school students killed in gun violence.

There are two big events planned for Saturday in San Luis Obispo; one is the March for Our Lives, during which area students and supporters will demonstrate for gun control. The other event celebrates military culture, and offers the public a rare opportunity to visit Camp San Luis Obispo, an active California National Guard base.
