WHAT WE DO:
Defending Our Children by Protecting Parental Rights:
“The rights of parents to the care, custody and nurture of their children is of such character that it cannot be denied without violating those fundamental principles of liberty and justice which lie at the base of all our civil and political institutions, and such right is a fundamental right protected by this amendment (first) and Amendments 5, 9, and 14. Doe v. Irwin 441 F Supp 1247; U.S. D.C. of Michigan, (1985)”
The Constitution of the United States clearly supports the family unit as the foundation upon which a strong society is built. More than anytime in the history of this nation, parental rights are under attack by government. Too many people are unaware of the encroaching policies aimed at usurping the rights of parents to be the primary unit designed to raise, teach, and nurture their children. Increasingly we see that if the family values run counter to institutional worldview and agenda, activists circumvent parents and indoctrinate the children in their care with their secular agenda. Most parents are not equipped to defend their children from these influences. If we are to remain free and prosperous as a nation, we must educate parents about laws and policies that suppress the rights of mothers and fathers to be the primary influence in their children’s lives. Families need tools and resources to help them defend these cardinal rights.
Power2Parent is the foremost parental rights organization in the state of Nevada. Our mission is to inform, organize, and mobilize parents and community members for the fundamental protection of parental rights. Power2Parent is an advocacy organization that seeks to influence policy and expose dangerous legislation to voters. We effectively reach thousands of people throughout Nevada with the mission of educating and empowering parents to protect their families.
In 2017, former Governor Sandoval vetoed a Planned Parenthood sex education bill that would have taken away the need for parental permission to be given before sexual material was taught in school classrooms. By incorporating social media alerts, email updates and cottage meetings, along with lobbying efforts with Legislators, Power2Parent successfully campaigned against this dangerous bill. Governor Sandoval agreed with us that schools have the obligation to inform parents about sex education curriculum and the timing of lessons.
Now more than ever, we need to default to the visionary writers of the Constitution, and reignite hearts and minds to the truth that liberty and justice are imparted to our society as a whole when the rights of parents are protected foremost.
how we started:
Dear Powerful Parent,
I wanted to take a minute and share with you how Power2Parent got started. I attended an invite only CCSD meeting where a graphic sexuality education curriculum was introduced, suggesting kindergarteners be taught about topics like masturbation. I was appalled. Shortly after that, a group of parents gathered in someone's living room and began to discuss the need for an organized effort to expose the degradation of parental rights. An organization that could inform, organize, and mobilize parents and community members to protect parental rights.
Power2Parent has grown in more than 6 years from a small group of parents to one of the most influential parents' rights groups in Nevada.
Our efforts to inform and organize parents in meetings and hearings has stopped bad policy and exposed dangerous agendas from groups who do not believe you should have the right to parent your children the way you see fit. In the 2017 legislative session, we stopped a Planned Parenthood backed bill aimed at taking away your right to know when your child would be taught sexuality education.
We are working hard everyday to monitor and hold people accountable for attempting to circumvent your fundamental right to parent.
Why is this so vitally important? Because if people don’t know their rights and don’t know that they are under attack everyday by well funded national groups, they will continue to weaken these rights. But, we cannot do it without you.
We are heading into a legislative session where so many of your rights are at risk. And we will be on the front lines, monitoring bills, lobbying, informing, and mobilizing parents and community members to protect these rights.
I want to thank you for joining me in this effort to protect our children and strengthen families. We could not continue our work without you.
