Julia Habeger started this petition to UC Santa Barbara

Dear Chancellor Henry T. Yang,

I, and other University students across the country, do not feel safe on college campuses. More specifically students fear of a shooting or terrorist attack on campus. While attending community college two years ago, the campus implemented safety locks in the event of an active shooter. These locks on the door handle lock from the inside of the room with a push of a button. This not only makes students feel safer but also the staff instead of locking the door from the outside and having to allocate keys in such an event. Although implementing these locks cannot rid the fear completely, I know that it would make me feel more comfortable in the learning environment and I hope it would do the same for other students. I believe that all college campuses should implement these locks but I am asking for signatures specifically for the University of California, Santa Barbara. If UCSB were to respond to the petition and install the locks I would hope that it would inspire other students across the country to reach out to their University to do so as well. The "SAFEBOLT" lock by Securitech is the perfect lock for our campus because it is easy to install and it is also affordable. With your help I truly believe that we can make this into a reality. This topic is very personal to me and others who are mass shooting survivors. Last November tragedy struck Borderline Grill in Thousand Oaks. Every week my friends and I would go and dance and it became an escape for us. After the worst happened our Borderline family was hurt, traumatized, and in pain for losing their loved ones. Almost one year later I have never seen such a strong community built around love and support. As you can see I am passionate about making our communities safe and I hope you consider signing my petition in implementing these locks on the UCSB campus.
