Family Day Rally in D.C.!

Families gathered outside the U.S. Capitol on November 20 in support of the Parental Rights Amendment. While the U.N. designated that date as International Childrens’ Day to celebrate the Convention on the Rights of the Child’s 20th anniversary, those who attended this rally recognize that nothing can be better for children than parents. The message from all of the speakers was the same: we need a Parental Rights Amendment, not the CRC, to direct American lawmakers in preserving the rights and freedoms of our families.

Speakers included Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ, right) and senior staffers on behalf of Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), all cosponsors of the Amendment. Also speaking were representatives from 8 Allied Organizations, including Heritage Foundation, National Black Home Educators, Home School Legal Defense Association, the American Family Rights Association, Eagle Forum, Stop Child Predators, National Organization of Conservative Women, and Americans for Tax Reform.
