Your Help Needed: The Next Step in Getting a Parental Opt-Out for Sexually Objectionable Curriculum
More than 10,000 people from a wide range of ethnic and religious backgrounds signed our petition to request that families have the right to opt their child out of any lesson or material that violates their religious or moral beliefs regarding sex, sexuality, or gender identity. The English and Spanish petitions were delivered to the pro-family primary sponsors of the soon-to-be-introduced opt-out bill and to the NJ Commissioner of Education. It will be delivered to the entire Legislature and Governor Phil Murphy later this month.
We now move to the next phase of mobilization – visiting legislators in each district to share with them the concerns of parents. Are you willing to join others in your legislative district in attending these appointments?
We have legislative captains in most districts that are scheduling these urgent meetings throughout August and September. We need you to join them!
Legislators recognize that any constituent who is willing attend a meeting represents thousands of others in their district who hold similar views. In other words, ten people attending a meeting could represent 10,000 voters in that district. Your presence can make the difference!
It will take an organized and persistent effort to convince NJ Senate and Assembly members to hear our bill giving parents the right to opt their child out of lessons that violate their religious beliefs regarding sex, sexuality and gender identity.
