Dear Friends,

America’s schools are under attack. From classrooms to locker rooms to school libraries, the radical Left is in the business of undermining parental rights and infusing schools with transgender ideology and other dangerous ideas.

Standing behind many of these policies? School boards.

School boards have the power to establish school guidelines, define classroom standards, and shape the environment that students enter each day. And the Left is well aware of that power.

Thankfully, not everyone agrees with the Left’s misguided vision. Across the nation, conservatives are stepping up to represent your values on local school boards. And at Family Policy Foundation, we’re helping to train those conservative leaders so they can effectively protect your children and grandchildren.

Now, you can help us make a difference.

We need to know who the strong, reliable, conservative school board members are in your area so we can provide them with the background material and tools they need to protect children.

There are over 90,000 local school board members in 14,000 school districts across the nation, and knowing who to reach out to is a daunting task. Your help in narrowing our focus to those best positioned to take action on this issue will be immensely helpful.

Here is where your homework comes in.

For any school board member whom you feel should be involved, CLICK HERE and provide the following: Their name, an email address, the name of your school district, city and state. If you do not have all of this information, share as much as you can! If you are fortunate enough to have several good school board members, please send us contact information for all of them.

This information will help us reach the greatest number of conservatives we can with the resources they need to make a difference.

Thank you for helping us protect children in your area and beyond!

Marketing Strategist

P.S. Late last year, many of you sent us the names of conservative school board members we could help equip to protect your schools. We kept track of those names, so no need to send again! If you have any new additions or did not submit any names previously, please pass along that information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are living in an intense time in human history.

The images out of the brutal attack on Israelis have forever been etched in the minds of all Americans who have been watching.

Many of you joined our prayer call with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, author Joel C. Rosenburg and Pastor Greg Laurie a week ago as we unpacked ways to pray for Israel and for “the peace of Jerusalem.”

Now, we must speak up and encourage our federal elected officials to continue to stand with Israel.

Please take a moment to send a quick email to your members of Congress, asking them not to give up in their defense of Israel and its right to exist.

It is astonishing today that some, like college students at liberal universities, are shouting support not for the innocent but for the terrorists who perpetrated these evil acts. This runs contrary to our basic human principles of protecting the innocent.

Ask Congress to shout louder in support of Israel and continue to fight terrorists like Hamas.

In late 2020, we launched Under God, One Nation to engage Christians in prayer regarding timely issues that were affecting our nation. That prayer initiative has continued over the years since then.

Submitted below for your prayer time (and also for sharing with your church or Sunday School) is our current list of prayer topics.

Israel

In case you missed it: last week we hosted a prayer and update call on Israel with author Joel C. Rosenberg, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Pastor Greg Laurie. You can still watch that here!

Transgender Issues

Government

To learn more about the things that Family Policy Alliance has been praying about over these past few years, please visit Under God, One Nation. There, you can sign up to get these prayer alerts more frequently and also join our prayer initiative by signing up to pray for our nation at a designated time of day.

 


It’s been a busy time in the US House of Representatives. Over the past couple of weeks, the Speaker of the House was voted out, and Congressional members have spent the days since negotiating and voting over who should be the next Speaker – arguably the most powerful position in Congress.

What’s going on? What’s at stake? And what happens next? Join us as our very own Director of Government Affairs, Ruth Ward, shares the inside scoop from Capitol Hill.  She’ll be joined by Family Policy Alliance President Craig DeRoche, who formerly served as Speaker of the House in Michigan and will shed light on what’s at stake with this role.

Ordinarily, when we think of loved ones or others that are having suicidal ideations, we would expect the medical community to direct them toward prevention and mental health before it’s too late. In fact, we expect the medical community to do no harm…

But, many states allow trusted medical professionals to offer assisted suicide to patients. And now, that offer is being made at a higher rate towards patients with a certain status, such as  those with disabilities.

In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week, Family Policy Alliance’s Ruth Ward sat down with Matt Vallière, Executive Director of Patients’ Rights Action Fund and Institute for Patients’ Rights, to break down the alarming truth about assisted suicide in America. Tune in today to learn more about what Christians can do to help.

This week, the North Carolina legislature overrode their governor’s veto of House Bill 808, marking the 20th state law that protects minors from dangerous and irreversible “transition” procedures. These #HelpNotHarm laws hold healthcare professionals accountable by providing child victims an opportunity to sue for damages.

This is an incredible victory, and one that YOU made possible. As we told media in a press statement, “The men and women who have courageously supported this legislation are heroes. We know that 50 years from now, our nation will look back and see transitioning children as one of the great medical scandals of our age.”

How did we get to this remarkable milestone? And what comes next? Tune in LIVE today to hear the testimonies of three people who were instrumental in the fight to protect children. David Walls, Gene Mills, and John Rustin are all leaders in the Family Policy Council movement – and fervent advocates to protect children from the transgender agenda. In every one of their states, their governor vetoed the Help Not Harm bill – but the legislatures voted to OVERRIDE those vetoes! Tune in to hear these dramatic stories – and what you can do to help bring these protections nationwide.

1 year ago today, life won. Roe v. Wade was overturned. On June 24, 2022, The Supreme Court came to the conclusion that Roe v. Wade was “egregiously wrong” and incorrectly decided.  After years of limiting the extent to which states and Congress could protect unborn children, the Court finally returned the issue back to the people. Since Dobbs, many pro-life states have passed laws that protect the unborn. Some of these laws include heartbeat bills, pain-capable bills, informed consent laws, parental involvement laws, and ultrasound requirements

One year after the overturn of Roe v. Wade, there is still much work to be done. While some states have taken bold steps to protect babies, many need far stronger protections and some are even radically pro-abortion. And in all states, women facing unexpected pregnancies need loving support, often found at pregnancy resource centers.

Today, we’re talking with two women from incredible organizations who work tirelessly every day to protect life, one on the policy front and the other with pregnancy resource centers. Join us to hear from Jennifer Roush, Executive Director of the SperaVita Institute, and Karen Bowling, Executive Director of Nebraska Family Alliance, to share their personal stories and encouragement for life #AfterRoe.

Today is the 51st anniversary of Title IX, the law that ensures that girls and women have equal access in education – including in sports. Prior to Title IX, girls often lacked the same access to sports teams and opportunities as their male peers. They might have to deal with inferior equipment and practice schedules – if they had a girls’ team at all

For some perspective on the significance of Title IX, consider this stat: before Title IX, 1 in 27 girls played sports, while today that number is 2 in 5. Talk about a difference! 

What does Title IX mean for female athletes? And what did girls’ sports look like before Title IX? Watch this short video we received in 2020 from Pat McWethy, a fellow Family Policy Foundation reader. 

Thanks to Title IX, the top-of-mind threat to girls’ sports today is not whether a typical public school will offer a program. It’s the fact that even though girls have their own sports, they face the real possibility that a male athlete (who has physical advantages) might join the team and take a roster spot, a championship title, or even a scholarship that was meant for a female.  

And that’s why we can’t talk about Title IX without talking about Save Girls’ Sports. At Family Policy Alliance, we were proud to partner with our state ally, Idaho Family Policy Center, to pass the first-ever Save Girls’ Sports law that ensures girls’ sports are reserved just for girls. In the 3 years since then, over 20 states have passed laws to ensure that girls’ sports are reserved just for girls. And, more than half of states have introduced the legislation, even if it didn’t pass. Americans are united on this critical issue. 

The Biden Administration has gone all-out to undermine our success. A new rule proposes to re-interpret Title IX as a way to directly threaten schools that abide by Save Girls’ Sports laws enacted in these 22 states – nearly half the country.

Our sister entity, Family Policy Alliance, submitted an official comment on the rule and encouraged you all to do the same. The end result? Over 4,000 of you spoke out! Now, the Biden Administration has delayed making their final decision on the rule – likely because they received so many comments from people like you! (Something you can be sure we’ll keep you posted about.) 

In the meanwhile, we’re celebrating Title IX, female athletes, and the states that are standing up to protect them – and we’re working to make sure that girls around the country can have such protections! If you want to support our efforts to Save Girls’ Sports (and so much more!), click here. The work we’ve done so far is made possible through your partnership, and we know there’s much more to do! 

Here’s to more victories to come!
