MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — Moms for Liberty, the nationwide advocacy group headquartered in Florida, is encouraging elected officials and 2022 candidates to sign their “Parent Pledge.”
The pledge states:
“I pledge to honor the fundamental rights of parents including, but not limited to the right to direct the education, medical care, and moral upbringing of their children. I pledge to advance policies that strengthen parental involvement and decision-making, increase transparency, defend against government overreach, and secure parental rights at all levels of government.”
FOSTER UNITY AND CONFIDENCE
The founders of Moms for Liberty, Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice, recently appeared on the national daytime TV talk show Dr. Phil, bringing attention to the important role parents play in the education of their children. In Florida, the group has been successful in advocating for an environment where parents are more included in conversations affecting their kids at school.
“We are fighting for the survival of America – which depends on informed voters making decisions,” Justice told the Florida Standard. “Our organization works to unify, educate and empower parents to defend their parental rights at all levels of government,” she added.
As Moms for Liberty bring mothers together through local chapters, they foster unity and confidence. By educating parents on the issues that are important to them locally, Justice believes each chapter is making a difference as they go to the ballot box.
PARENTS HAVE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS
Moms for Liberty played a big role in the passing of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, called “Don’t Say Gay” by the mainstream media.
“That moniker, ‘Don’t Say Gay,’ was so unfair,” Justice told The Florida Standard. “The polling on the support for that bill was in the high 60s for both Republicans and Democrats, so you’ve got a vast majority of Americans who supported that legislation and would like to see it in their own state,” Justice added.
“Parents’ voices matter, despite what teachers unions and the NEA [National Education Association] try to tell you. Now more than ever, we need leaders who are willing to push back and stand up for parents’ rights to care for their children, something so fundamental to a healthy society,” co-founders Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice said.
CANDIDATES SUPPORTING “THE PARENT PLEDGE”
“People want to know where their elected officials stand on issues that they care about,” Justice said. “They trusted and voted for people who didn’t stand for those things. That’s why we created the ‘Parent Pledge.’”
Key elected officials and candidates have recently signed their “Parent Pledge,” including U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Florida State Rep. Michael Beltran. Other candidates across the country include Doug Mastriano and Carrie Lewis DelRosso in Pennsylvania, and Tudor Dixon in Michigan.
“We applaud the leaders across our country that are proudly signing our ‘Parent Pledge’ to show their support for more parental involvement and less government overreach in our children’s lives. We encourage voters to look at these names and know who will have your back come November,” said co-founders Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice.
Concerned moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and community members can sign the Moms for Liberty Parent Pledge as well.
