Eileen Barendse

Co-Lead Vermont Chapter of Moms Demand Action

Eileen Barendse is a former educator, current Co-Lead of the Vermont Chapter of Moms Demand Action, and the State Lead for the BeSMART program.

As an educator and mother, Eileen became discouraged by the response to nationwide gun violence in schools and mass shootings. After joining Moms Demand Action in the summer of 2022, Eileen began learning about the alarming reality of gun violence in America and the role of guns in suicide deaths in Vermont. Through the BeSMART program, Eileen can reach caregivers nationwide and educate them about the importance of secure firearm storage as a lifesaving practice.
