The Help Not Harm Summit was held to answer questions. Whether you were able to join for just one session, for the whole day, or maybe none; we set aside time to answer the questions that have been on your mind. And we shared PRACTICAL and CRITICAL information and tools to make a difference in your country, your state, and even your own family. Now you can view them all by clicking below.
What is the Help Not Harm Summit?
Transgender ideology is sweeping our nation, and youth are the targets. From school classrooms to social media and even the therapist’s office, kids are encouraged to question their own biology. And struggling children are pushed toward “transition – a dangerous series of interventions that can result in sterilization, long-term health consequences, and potentially worse mental health outcomes.
Kids who are struggling deserve real help, not the harm of hormones and surgery.
We know you want to help. So on Friday, October 15, we held a FREE event to EQUIP you with information and practical tools to make a difference in your country, your state, and even your own family. Full agenda below. Now you can review the sessions or, if you could not join us on the 15th, watch them for the first time.

Take Action Today
Kids are not experiments. When a child is struggling, they need compassionate care – not experimental hormones and surgery.
In 2021, Arkansas became the first state to legally protect minors from harmful gender transition procedures including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and mutilating surgeries. Tennessee also passed a version of these protections in 2021.
Now, it’s time for other states to follow suit. Our vision is that this kind of dangerous intervention would become unthinkable across the United States – and at the same time, that hurting children and their parents would be able to receive real help and counseling to help them live as healthy and whole people.
You can help make this a reality. TAKE ACTION NOW: Sign our petition asking lawmakers across the nation to protect children! Your voice can make a real difference, so please act now and then spread the word!
