Our children are under attack: minds, bodies, and hearts.
In media and at school, children are routinely exposed to explicit messages and images.
Boys are allowed to play in girls’ sports, shattering their opportunities and dreams.
When children are struggling to embrace their biological sex, they are pushed to pursue cross-sex hormones and sterilizing surgery to “transition” to living as the opposite sex – advice that minimizes the dangerous long-term effects of such a decision and shuts out alternatives.
Children waiting for foster and adoptive homes must wait even longer because a local foster agency was forced to shut its doors. Why? Because it declined to support these same dangerous surgeries for children.
Not only are these issues occurring in individual states, but the federal Equality Act – which the U.S. House is poised to vote on next week – will use the full power of federal government to enshrine many of these practices across the nation.
It makes no sense, and I’ve had enough. Have you?
These and other concerning realities are behind a new initiative that we’re thrilled to share with you. We’ve joined forces with The Heritage Foundation, Alliance Defending Freedom, and 50 other state and national organizations to create the Promise to America’s Children.
The Promise is our pledge to protect America’s children – mind, bodies, and hearts. It’s a personal pledge to the children in our lives that we will protect them. And it’s a pledge to children across the nation that we will fight for their innocence and protect them from harm.
Already, more than 50 state and national organizations have endorsed the Promise to America’s Children – and more keep joining.
We hope you’ll sign the pledge, too. If you want to sign the pledge to your child, we encourage you to click here or click on the image of the Parent’s Promise. While you’re there, consider exploring the website. You’ll find a more detailed version of the Promise that explains specific areas where we must protect children, as well as more information about our vision.
What happens when I sign the Promise? When you sign the Promise, you’re making a statement that the children in your life come first and that you will strive to protect them – mind, body, and heart. And, you can use the Promise as a great starting point to learn more about what’s happening to America’s children or to share about these concerns with friends. When you’re sharing with friends, feel free to share the image we’ve included here!
What comes next? You’re invited to a special virtual event next Tuesday!
