Unblocked: Twitter Update!

May 19, 2021


Four months ago, Twitter blocked our friends at Focus on the Family from their platform because one of their accounts – The Daily Citizen – accurately described Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine as “a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

We quickly formed a coalition of likeminded national organizations, state Family Policy Councils, members of Congress and state legislators to launch the #AreWeNext campaign on social media.

Our original tweet garnered over 640,000 impressions!

Then we shared the news with you – and boy did you respond! More than 50,000 of you signed our petition to Twitter stating that you stood with Focus on the Family and against censorship.

I’m very happy to report that after four long months, Focus on the Family’s The Daily Citizen has been restored on Twitter!  You may have seen our tweet yesterday welcoming them back.

This ordeal is an example of how your voice can make a difference – even with tech giants!  There is power in numbers, and when tens of thousands of concerned citizens speak up, change can and does happen. We appreciate each of you who engaged with us to end the Twitter lockdown on Focus on the Family.

The battle against Big Tech censorship has only just begun (just this week Twitter censored a political leader for saying that men cannot get pregnant), but this proves that together we can win. If you believe in the fight against the Cancel Culture, please help making more wins possible with your gift to Family Policy Alliance.
