This month, amid multiple national crises, President Biden’s official Twitter account pushes the LGBT agenda with this banner.
Yesterday, the President took aim directly at you and at Family Policy Alliance.
He took aim at everyone who has been part of the movement to protect children from sexualized content in their classrooms, a gender theory agenda that threatens their bodies, and dangerous political efforts to keep parents in the dark about their own children.
He literally called us all “bullies” and directed many of the administrative agencies to implement his LGBT agenda through a sweeping executive order. You read that right. The sitting President name-called and alienated himself from over half the country—to drive forward an agenda that is out-of-step with most Americans.
The executive order amounts to a federal takeover of decisions that belong to parents, local schools and healthcare professionals. Sadly, one of the biggest aspects of his mandate is to push gender transition on children. That’s a direct attack on Family Policy Alliance’s Help Not Harm campaign and states moving to protect children from such dangerous transgender interventions.
The President’s plan for a young girl facing gender dysphoria is a one-way street—she should undergo unnecessary, life-altering, and permanent medical procedures designed to make her more “masculine” and leave her sterile before she even thinks about whether she might start a family. This is not health care.
President Biden has demonstrated how out of touch he is with millions of Americans. He directly attacked Florida’s popularly supported parental rights law that was led by our friends at Florida Family Policy Council. And he can’t ignore the growing effort to Save Girls’ Sports. In 2020, our movement birthed the first state’s save girls’ sports law. Last year, nine states adopted a version of these laws. This year, that number has doubled to 18.
The President drew clear battle lines with his Order, and we proudly stand with you on the side of the states leading the movement to protect women and children, save girls’ sports, and ensure parents know what’s happening in their child’s classroom.
Yet he has also identified himself as an actual threat to democracy with this federal takeover, and the resources needed to push back against his woke agenda and its sweeping consequences just increased by several times what they have been.
We are eager to keep the momentum going in pushing back against the President’s woke agenda, but yesterday he made the fight that much more complicated and difficult. He showed that he’s willing to put the full weight of the presidency behind gender transition and sexualization of children.
If you are already a ministry partner with us, would you please consider an additional gift to help meet this need? If you haven’t yet partnered with us, would you please consider a monthly contribution to fuel the fight? Or, a special one-time gift to immediately help fight back against the President’s executive order would help greatly.
The President is out-of-touch with most Americans on these issues, will directly harm children, and demonstrates his eagerness to “parent” your children in your place. Mr. President, they aren’t your children.
Help us push back now. We can’t wait.
Senior Vice President, Strategy
New executive order seeks to force LGBT ideology on a nation that doesn’t want it
Today, President Biden issued a sweeping executive order during “Pride Month” that is a direct attack on what you—and so many others across the states—have been doing to push back against his woke agenda and to protect children.
The executive order seeks to use the full power of the federal government to stop the movement to save girls’ sports, keep parents in the dark about what’s happening in their children’s classroom, and force gender “transitions” on children as a form of “healthcare.”
In response, Family Policy Alliance released an official statement to the media, as well as a joint statement with our friends from Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF). WoLF is an organization of self-described “radical feminists.” We may disagree on many issues, but we agree that gender ideology and this sweeping executive order are extremely dangerous—particularly for women and children.
Tune in to hear from Family Policy Alliance’s President & CEO, Craig DeRoche, and WoLF’s Executive Director, Mahri Irvine, LIVE about the President’s executive order and our response TONIGHT at 7:30PM ET.
Here is the statement we released today to the media in response to the President’s Executive Order:
Statement from Craig DeRoche, CEO and President of Family Policy Alliance:
“Today, President Biden has identified himself as an actual threat to democracy and to families, by showing his willingness to issue a federal takeover of decisions that belong to parents, schools, and health care professionals – all in a single executive order.
“President Biden promised to enact the sweeping Equality Act, which seeks to redefine sex across federal law. That bill has failed multiple times in Congress. Not only that, but Americans across the nation are moving in the opposite direction.
“That reality is the clear impetus for today’s executive order. The President is going after the states and the American people who are pushing back against his woke agenda. The accompanying fact sheet for the order alluded to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, Help Not Harm laws that protect minors from transgender interventions, and the Save Girls’ Sports laws that now protect female athletes in eighteen states.
“As for the people leading those policies? We’re not intimidated. We know that the alliance of state family policy councils behind many of these policies is standing strong, and that the movement’s momentum is greater than ever. Look no further than the sweeping effort to Save Girls’ Sports. In 2020, one state had such a law. Last year, 9 states had Save Girls’ Sports laws. This year, that number has doubled to eighteen.
“Today, the President alienated himself from his fellow Americans and called them ‘bullies’ to underscore the point. He’s drawn clear battle lines, and we proudly stand on the side of the states leading the movement to protect women and children, save girls sports, and ensure parents know what’s happening in their child’s kindergarten classroom.
“Today, Biden has accomplished little more than show how out of touch he is with millions of Americans and add fuel to the fire to ensure that kids and their families are protected across the country.”

The Biden Administration is on a mission to erase women.
Today is International Women’s Day, but on a day that he should be celebrating women, President Biden signed two sweeping Executive Orders that undermine women across America.

The LGBT Czars
Last year, during the Presidential debates, we wrote to you about Kamala Harris’s policy dreams, including establishing a White House LGBT czar. Dubbed the “Chief Advocate for LGBTQ+ Affairs”, this individual would work with agencies throughout the federal government to advance the LGBT agenda.
Today, Vice President Harris got her wish – or some version of it. Biden’s first order establishes a “Gender Policy Council”.
The New York Times has called it “the most powerful body of its kind to date.” And the Council’s co-chair described it as “not just a council,” but “a plan to take a government-wide approach to gender equity and equality.”
Leading officials and cabinet members from across the Administration will be required to participate. In education, health care, housing, and even foreign policy, the Biden Administration will use taxpayer dollars to advance the transgender agenda and “reproductive…rights” (read: abortion).
According to the new Council’s co-chair, “We are very inclusive in our definition of gender.” That’s code for “men can be women, too.”
On International Women’s Day, the President has created a Council that ERASES women.
But that’s not the only Executive Order erasing women. The second order redefines “sex” in Title IX.
Title IX is the federal law that bans sex discrimination in educational environments. It played a critical role in allowing women to finally get their own chance at sports, among other things.
But today, President Biden redefined sex in Title IX to include sexual orientation and gender identity. This change will affect schools across the nation. Practically, it means that if a male declares that he feels he is a female, he will likely be allowed to…
- Compete (and win) in girls’ sports
- Enter girls’ locker rooms and restrooms
- Gain access to other opportunities meant for girls
In other words, on a day meant to honor women, President Biden signed two executive orders that ERASE women, even handing women’s opportunities to biological men.
These changes remind us eerily of the federal Equality Act, which would introduce many of these same changes – and more – across the nation. But there are key differences between the Equality Act and the President’s Executive Orders. First, while an Executive Order can be easily undone by a new Presidential administration, a law passed by Congress cannot be. Second, Presidents, unlike Congress, aren’t supposed to develop new laws. Biden’s executive orders are his attempt to get around Congress’s lawmaking process.
President Biden has been a strong proponent of the Equality Act, promising to sign it in his first 100 days in office. His release of these policies now could reflect his awareness that the American people are strongly pushing back against the Equality Act in the U.S. Senate – and that executive orders far outside the bounds of his authority may be his best attempt at advancing a radical political agenda.
We’re encouraged by that – but we’re also reminded that we must stop the Equality Act. Biden’s Executive Orders, bad as they are, will likely be challenged in court and can be easily undone by a new president. If made law, the Equality Act could not be so easily undone.
The U.S. Senate could vote on the Equality Act any day, and we MUST make it crystal clear that Americans are opposed to it.
So please, take action today. Use our Action Center to send a message to both of your U.S. Senators. Then, spread the word to friends.
Let’s make sure that these unconstitutional Executive Orders aren’t set in stone through the so-called “Equality Act.”

P.S. Please contact your Senators now. It only takes a minute in our Action Center.
We’ve all heard the classic folktale about the Emperor with no clothes. False “weavers” sold the unfortunate Emperor invisible “clothes,” and everyone around him only told him everything he wanted to hear, too afraid to speak the truth. It got so bad that the Emperor ultimately led an important procession before the crowds wearing nothing but his underwear, thinking he was wearing elaborate and fine clothing because everyone told him he was. What’s worse—he was too afraid to admit even to himself that he wasn’t wearing the fine clothing, desperate for their approval and admiration.
I’m sad to say that at only seven days in office, President Biden is already acting like an emperor, and he thinks he’s wearing fine clothing.
On his first day in office, President Biden issued an executive order directing his Administration to implement the transgender political agenda far and wide as a hat tip to the activists who supported his bid for office. This executive order is setting up a tsunami of policy changes that absolutely will affect every American family. With a stroke of his pen, he declared that the word “boy” can mean the word “girl.” Everyone, even those on the far left, knows that this can never be a physical reality, but President Biden’s words will make everyone pretend that it is.
Tell your governor and state legislators that President Biden’s transgender executive order must not stand!
He will attempt to force every public school to let boys play on girls’ athletic teams. He will insist that men (who say they are women) be housed at shelters specifically for women—even though those women have often been victims of sexual assault or domestic violence. He will attempt to force this ideology into every aspect of public-school curriculum—pre-kindergarten on up to high school. He plans to force doctors to perform physical interventions on children’s healthy bodies to make them better “identify” with the opposite sex—often rendering these children sterile and experimentally interrupting their natural onset of puberty, regardless of whether the doctor thinks this is in the child’s best interest. And on and on.
The truth of sex as male and female, as God uniquely designed us, is rightly so integrally woven throughout our law that the impact President Biden’s edict will have is not even comprehensible.
And yet the masses pretend right along with President Biden, no one daring to say otherwise. And his advisers and political activists on the Left call in “experts” to support their gender theory—telling him they’re giving him elaborate garments to wear.
But reality is worse than the folktale. In the story, only the Emperor is harmed as he embarrassingly wanders around in his underwear. In this case, Biden’s massive policy change will most directly harm women and children. What’s the point in shattering glass ceilings if men are really the ones holding the hammer? And how do we explain this to children whose lives and bodies have been irreparably harmed in order to further a lie?
And to top it all off, Joe Biden isn’t even an Emperor! Here in America, we aren’t supposed to have kings, thrones or edicts. Yet he’s walking around like the folktale emperor, attempting to make massive policy changes with his pen.
Here in America, we have three separate branches of government (Legislative, Judiciary and Executive) meant to serve as checks against one another. And, we have dual systems of government, the federal government and each state’s government, operating as sovereigns and serving as checks on one another. Policy changes are supposed to come from the branch most closely connected to the people, the Legislative branch—not the Executive branch, which holds the presidency.
In fact, the Legislative branch has been debating the kind of policy change President Biden wrote up out of thin air—a bill called the “Equality Act,” that would make a person’s LGBT status a protected class of the highest kind in law. This would give a person identifying as LGBT the same level of special protection in law that we give based on the classifications of race, national origin, and religion. This is an extremely dangerous policy, and Congress has rejected its passage every time.
President Biden and his advisers know all this—and how much work it actually takes to pass a law—so he attempted to make this sweeping change himself by writing it up as an executive order. He’s operating like an emperor, far outside the bounds of his executive branch authority.
So when we have a makeshift emperor wandering around, with no one daring to tell him he’s been sold fake clothes, and perhaps much of the country too busy to notice while they fight with each other, what are we as believers to do? Because we must do something!
What you can do to engage our government, in a manner worthy of the Gospel.
The beautiful thing about the folktale is that a little child is the one who finally speaks the truth and tells the emperor he’s not wearing any clothing. I love this because of the biblical connection—God’s Word tells us to be as little children. May we all have the childlike faith, boldness and love to engage in our system of government.
Individual families and the states themselves can push back against the direction the Biden Administration is moving—serving as a check on the government. For example, Biden’s executive order looks to force schools to permit boys in girls’ sports. But last year Family Policy Alliance helped Idaho pass a law specifically reserving girls’ sports for girls—and seven more states are already following Idaho’s lead this year, moving “save girls’ sports” legislation through the process. This sends a powerful message to Washington, D.C.
Especially when it comes to our children, we have to draw a hard line in our states, and the time is now. Join us in sending a message to your state legislators and governor: President Biden’s transgender agenda is outside his authority and harmful to children, and must be stopped.
Send your message now– it only takes one minute through our Action Center, which sends a message automatically to your state policymakers.
What you can do spiritually
Even when we disagree with our leaders, we are called to pray for them. So, we will continue to lift up President Biden and his advisers in prayer before the throne of Heaven. He has been deeply deceived on this issue and needs our prayers.
Please consider joining our prayer initiative, where we are praying and seeking to restore God as first in this country—Under God, One Nation. You can reserve a time where you will commit to lifting up our country and its leaders to our True King.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be the child telling the Emperor he’s been sold fake clothing than the Emperor’s advisors who feed him lies to protect themselves and seek their own interest.
For truth—and in love,
Vice President for Strategy
