This is it! This is the exciting moment we’ve been waiting for!
Rep. Debbie Lesko plans to reintroduce the Parental Rights Amendment in Congress in the first week of March, shortly after their upcoming recess. And that means right now is the time for your congressman to sign on as an original cosponsor.
Cosponsors can help show that a bill or resolution has solid support—it’s not just backed by one solitary lawmaker.
And cosponsors are even more important right now.
Because of last year’s elections, combined with the nationwide interest in parental rights, we believe that the time is ripe to press ahead in a big way with the Parental Rights Amendment. We’ve never had a full Judiciary Committee hearing in Congress, let alone a committee vote. And all of that— and maybe more— is on the table, IF we can show House leadership that the Parental Rights Amendment has broad support, as shown by numerous cosponsors. Combined with our fly-in for our state coordinators and leaders, we are excited about this chance for significant progress to protect our fundamental right to raise our children.
So please take a moment today—before you close this email!—to contact your member of the U.S. House of Representatives and urge him or her to sign on as an original cosponsor of the Parental Rights Amendment.
Your message should be in your own words, but can be as simple as the following:
I am calling to urge my member of Congress to sign on as an original cosponsor of the Parental Rights Amendment. The fundamental role of parents in the life of their child is non-negotiable and should be firmly established in the text of the U.S. Constitution. Please contact Annie Clark in Rep. Debbie Lesko’s office to sign on before she introduces the Amendment resolution this Thursday. Thank you.
Lawmakers who don’t act soon enough can still sign on as cosponsors after the introduction, but our aim is to have as many original cosponsors as possible. So please reach out to your lawmaker today!
(Please do not contact your U.S. Senators yet. That call is coming soon, but it is not today.)
Thank you for standing with us to protect children by securing parental rights in the U.S. Constitution!
