There is a good chance we have never met before, but we have been in this battle together for a long time. Allow me to more properly introduce myself. My name is Allan Wright, and I am excited to serve as the Executive Director of the New Jersey Family Policy Center. Many of you personally know our founder and President Emeritus Len Deo. Many others know our Director of Advocacy Shawn Hyland. I believe in the months and years to come; you and I will become more acquainted as you know my heart and passion to serve the families of New Jersey.
You might be asking – what’s my story?
I am a lifelong New Jersey resident. My wife Desiree and our four children live in Basking Ridge. I have been involved in education for over thirty years as a high school teacher, school principal, academic dean for evangelization, and as an adjunct professor for the Catholic Studies Department at Seton Hall University, and as an adjunct professor at Immaculate Conception Seminary. My love for writing and teaching others has inspired me to author twenty books.
I care deeply about public and private education, protecting the image of God in the womb, and the spiritual development of God’s people through discipleship. My personal relationship with Christ started during my teen years through the ministry of Young Life. That is why I am driven each day to protect the hearts and minds of our school-aged children in New Jersey. The formative years of a person’s soul and intellect are between grades K-12. Therefore, the deception of radical gender ideology and the indoctrination of government mandated sexual ethics is a conflict of truth versus falsehood. I am ready to have that conversation with state legislators and education stakeholders throughout our state.

This week I had the opportunity to visit the Statehouse in Trenton and meet state senators who are standing up for parental rights. I was encouraged to meet such bold and strong representatives who have sponsored numerous bills to protect our children and demand transparency in education.
From what I heard on the ground, there is an increasing dissent coming from the governor’s party over his insistence to teach sexually themed curriculum to students. It is my hope that if man can suppress his conscience, he will not be able to silence common-sense.
I look forward to meeting you in person at our Gala on November 16.
