Several hundred people gathered at the California State Capitol Monday in Sacramento to protest against a number of assembly bills, which they say violate their parental rights and put the safety of their children in jeopardy.

“There has been an increasing groundswell of parental concern that really has come out of the school board meeting drama here in California, where parents have been challenged and parents have been calibrated against for attending school board meetings, in defense of their children’s education and safety,” Christian megachurch pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills Jack Hibbs, told Fox News Digital Monday.

Hibbs said they were expecting a couple of thousand people to show up, but Hurricane Hilary caused more than 1,000 flight cancelations, according to online tracker Flight Aware.
