A Conference on Parental Rights has been scheduled at the Franciscan University of Steubenville (Ohio) on April 9–10, 2021.
The conference, which will feature more than a dozen scholars and professional experts speaking on a wide range of parental rights issues, is sponsored by the Parental Rights Foundation, the Franciscan University of Steubenville Veritas Society, Society of Catholic Social Scientists, Alliance Defending Freedom, Home School Legal Defense Association, and more. Additional sponsors are expected to join, as well.
Speakers will include Parental Rights Foundation president Jim Mason and PRF board members Stephen Krason, Ph.D., and Allison Folmar, Esq., as well as founder and former president Michael Farris (who is now with Alliance Defending Freedom).
Speakers will address such topics as “False Child Abuse Allegations, the Child Protective System, and the Threat to Parental Rights,” “Parental Rights and Parental Involvement in the Public Schools,” “In Defense of Homeschooling: A Response to Professor Bartholet and the Recent Academic Critics of Parents’ Rights to Educate Their Children,” “Parental Rights and the Minority Community,” and “The Legal Defense of Parental Rights in the US and Internationally.”
The Franciscan University of Steubenville has a history of offering conferences that are academically significant, yet accessible to anyone with an interest in the subject—and this one promises to be no different.
So mark your calendar for Friday and Saturday, April 9–10, 2021, and make plans to join us in Steubenville. Those booking flights will find Steubenville, which is in the far eastern part of Ohio, conveniently accessible from Pittsburg, PA.
