Parents wage successful battle over 'trans' agenda

transgender high school bathroomThe Delaware Department of Education was about to enact a radical policy that would have adversely affected all public school children in the state – until alarmed parents made their voices heard.

The proposed policy (Regulation 225) would have allowed students to self-identify their gender – as well as their race – without any input from parents. However, Autumn Leva of the Family Policy Alliance reports more than 8,000 parents signed a petition opposing the policy once they found out about it.

"I think it really sends a message that when families, when believers – the Body of Christ – come together and take a stand for something and what is right, there is strength and power in that," she shares. "And it showed how things can be stopped."

DelawareAlliance leader Nicole Theis has described Regulation 225 as "an example of the direct conflict between transgender ideology and parental authority."

According to Leva, the Delaware Family Policy Council – an affiliate of the Family Policy Alliance – was responsible for rallying parents. But she says the fight isn't over because the state legislature is trying to enact a law that would do the same thing.

"But I really hope that parents continue to get involved and to speak up against these types of issues that will impact their children," she urges.

Leva says parents outside of Delaware should be vigilant because similar regulatory attempts have already been undertaken in various other states.
