About Us

Our mission is to educate and inform the public and policymakers regarding parental rights with a goal of “securing the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

Founded in 2014, The Parental Rights Foundation is a research and educational institution.


We believe that one blessing of liberty is the freedom of parents to raise their children without undue government interference. Our vision is to secure this liberty by educating those in government and the public at large on the important role that parental rights holds in ensuring that the freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society of America continue to flourish from generation to generation.

The Parental Rights Foundation works to inform Americans of the growing contest between government and families regarding who should be the primary decision maker for children. Parental rights are good for children, good for families, and good for society.
