WATCH CPC’S PARENTAL RIGHTS VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE
PARENTAL RIGHTS VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE
On August 22, 2023, CPC launched the Parental Rights Pledge at our LIVE Parental Rights Virtual Open House. The virtual event was moderated by Lance Christensen, CPC’s Vice President of Education Policy and Government Affairs, and Mari Barke, Director of CPC’s California Local Elected Officials.
Lance and Mari interviewed some of the most dynamic and influential leaders of California’s parental rights movement, including parent group leaders, school board members, and state legislators who have been at the forefront of defending parents’ rights.
Guests discussed the bills being pushed by some state legislators that aim to take away the constitutional rights of parents and undermine the authority of local school boards. Guests also discussed the new Parental Notification Policy being adopted by California school boards.
And, CPC launched the Parental Rights Pledge — a straightforward affirmation of the basic rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children without harassment and intimidation from activist state officials who are pushing their political agenda on California’s kids.
