Welcome to 2023! It’s going to be a huge year for parental rights, and we can’t wait to get it started!
In the coming days, we’ll see state legislatures convene and take up legislation to support fundamental parental rights. And the Parental Rights Amendment is coming back to the U.S. Congress, as well!
We’ll also have gatherings and events around the country throughout the year, and the first one is coming up in Florida later this month. If you’re in Florida, I hope you’ll make plans to join us. Or if you know someone in Florida who would be interested, please pass this invitation along.
If you’re not in Florida, you may want to wait and watch for an event closer to where you are. We’ll let you know as those get scheduled throughout the year.
Without further ado, below is the information you need on the upcoming Florida event.
An Evening With Parental Rights Florida
Date, Time & Location
Thursday, January 26, 2023
6:30 – 8:30 pm
3235 58th Avenue (Kings Baptist Church Building)
Vero Beach, Florida
Our local communities, state, and nation are battling for parental rights to protect our children and families. Engaging as parents and citizens at this crucial time in history is more important now than ever. This evening will include:
The State of Parental Rights in Florida
The State of Parental Rights in the United States
Discussion With Q & A
Parents In Action – The Way Forward
Our keynote speaker of the evening is the president of ParentalRights.org and the Parental Rights Foundation, Will Estrada. Will is an attorney who spent 14 years at HSLDA lobbying for homeschool freedom on Capitol Hill. He has testified before Congress and state legislatures. He served four years as a career federal servant at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services in the Office for Civil Rights’ Conscience and Religious Freedom Division. He will give an update about what’s happening on a national level regarding parental rights.
Parental Rights Florida has been at the forefront of the parental rights movement in Florida since 2012. In 2018, Patti & Jim Sullivan presented parental rights language to Florida Representative Erin Grall (now Senator). She then created and sponsored the Parents’ Bill of Rights. After a three-year legislative and grassroots push, the Bill passed in 2021. It was signed by Governor Ron DeSantis just as a new wave of national interest in parental rights emerged. The model language for this bill is now being introduced in state legislatures nationwide.
Thank you for standing on behalf of parents and families at this crucial moment in history.
