We are excited to let you know that H.B. 1178, the Parents’ Bill of Rights, has passed the Georgia State House of Representatives! H.B. 1178 passed 98-68, and you can see how your legislator voted here.
If the Georgia State Senate passes H.B. 1178 and it is signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp, it will enshrine into Georgia law that parental rights are a fundamental right. H.B. 1178 would also do the following:
- provide curriculum transparency to parents of children in Georgia 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 Georgia.
If H.B. 1178 were enacted into law, Georgia would join fourteen other states in the nation that already have similar laws protecting children and families by recognizing parental rights as a fundamental right.
Please call or email (or both!) your Georgia State Senator and ask him or her to support H.B. 1178.
Your message can be as simple as:
“Please support H.B. 1178, the Parents’ Bill of Rights. This critical and timely bill will enshrine into Georgia law that parental rights are a fundamental right, as the U.S. Supreme Court has held for the past 100 years. Additionally, H.B. 1178 will protect parents and children in Georgia’s public schools, allowing parents to make critical decisions regarding their own children.”
If you send an email to your Georgia State Senator, please feel free to link to the letter that we sent in support of H.B. 1178.
Thank you for standing with us to protect parental rights.
