Action Alert: Call your Hawaii State Representatives to Enact Parents’ Bill of Rights
We are excited to let you know that Hawaii Representative Gene Ward has introduced H.B. 2295 to enact a Parents’ Bill of Rights.
We strongly support this bill. If H.B. 2295 were to be passed into law, it would:
- enshrine into Hawaii law that parental rights are a fundamental right,
- provide curriculum transparency to parents of children in Hawaii public schools,
- allow parents to protect their children’s privacy in public schools,
- allow parents to opt their children out of certain public-school classes, and
- provide a host of additional protections for families in Hawaii.
If H.B. 2295 were to be enacted into law, Hawaii would join fourteen other states in the nation that already have similar laws protecting parental rights as a fundamental right.
Please call or email (or both!) your Hawaii State Representative and ask him or her to support H.B. 2295.
Your message can be as simple as:
“Please support H.B. 2295, the Parents’ Bill of Rights. This critical and timely bill will enshrine into Hawaii law that parental rights are a fundamental right, as the U.S. Supreme Court has held for the past 100 years. And H.B. 2295 will protect parents and children in Hawaii’s public schools, allowing parents to make critical decisions regarding their own children.”
If you send an email to your Hawaii State Representative, please feel free to link to the letter that we sent in support of H.B. 2295.
Thank you for standing with us to protect parental rights.
