We’re excited to announce that Pennsylvania Senators Doug Mastriano, Kristin Phillips-Hill, Judy Ward, and Michele Brooks have introduced S.B. 996 to protect parental rights. S.B. 996 will protect parental rights in Pennsylvania law, strengthening the right of parents to direct the education, upbringing, and care of their children. And it will allow Pennsylvania to join the twelve other states in the nation that already have a similar law on their books.
Our new President, Will Estrada, and one of our Board Members, Vickie Suarez, are joining families from across Pennsylvania on Tuesday, February 8, at the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg, and will speak about parental rights and the importance of S.B. 996. We encourage you to attend, hear from Will Estrada and Vickie Suarez and other speakers on parental rights issues in Pennsylvania, and then visit your elected officials in person to urge them to support S.B. 996. You can click here to see a schedule of events on Tuesday, February 8.
If you cannot make it to the Pennsylvania Capitol on Tuesday, you can still help! Please contact your Pennsylvania senator and ask him or her to support S.B. 996 to enshrine into Pennsylvania law that parental rights are a fundamental right. If you send your senator an email using the online contact form, feel free to link to our letter we sent in support of S.B. 996. Your message can be as simple as:
“Please support S.B. 996 to enshrine into Pennsylvania law that parental rights are a fundamental right. This common-sense bill will take the U.S. Supreme Court’s precedent from the last 100 years and put it into the text of Pennsylvania law, thereby protecting the constitutional rights of Pennsylvania families.”
Thank you for standing with us to fight for parental rights. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, February 8!
