I’m so excited! For the first time in nine years (and only the second time in our history), we are gathering our state coordinators from across the country for a Parental Rights Leadership Fly-in this March!
You might think we have bigger things to be excited about right now, like the pending reintroduction of the Parental Rights Amendment in Congress, or the introduction of fundamental parental rights legislation in more than a dozen states. And I am excited about those things, too.
But I know firsthand how much our first fly-in all the way back in late 2013 helped lay the crucial groundwork that has paved the way for these other big events that are taking place today.
See, a fly-in is an opportunity for our volunteer leaders from across the country to all come together in one room and share stories, tips and—most of all—their common passion for families. That fly-in nine years ago did so much to build relationships and cement individual resolve for our mission together!
And that’s why I can’t wait to see it happen all over again.
This March 27–29, we’ll be gathering in the DC area for a conference with our volunteer state leaders, along with some top donors and board members. We’ll also spend a day in DC, visiting Congress and urging our representatives to support the Parental Rights Amendment and any other key parental rights legislation that may arise by that time.
Now, I have to tell you: our volunteer leaders are some of the greatest people in the world. They are generous with their time, their efforts, and their passion. If we told them they have to pay for this event themselves, I bet every one of them would be willing to do so. Willing—but not necessarily able.
So, we’re not asking them to do that. Our plan is to cover the cost of everything but their travel to get here, in hopes that as many of them as possible can join us.
But to make that happen, we will need your help. All told, this conference will cost us in the neighborhood of $20,000. Can you join us in supporting these passionate, tireless, self-sacrificing state leaders with a one-time donation today to help us cover their costs to gather?
(And if one or two very generous donors wanted to cover the travel costs, too, we’d love to hear from you!)
Pulling these folks together in one place will let us reap tremendous dividends in heart, effort, and solid relationships that will carry our entire mission well into the future. And I know it will—because we’re still reaping benefits from 2013!
Thank you for standing with us to protect children by empowering parents, and thank you for making this meaningful and exciting event possible!
