This is how change happens
Are you ready for some good news? I know I am!
First, last night, the Vineland School District repealed the anti-parent policy #5756, commonly known as the Transgender Student Guidelines. They add their name to a growing list of other districts that repealed this policy over a brief period dating back to September of 2023. The vote was not even close. Seven members were in favor of the repeal, and only two members were opposed.
I believe one of the key factors that persuaded school board members to put parents and students first was the tremendous turnout and demonstration of the faith community. Over twelve pastors were in attendance, along with a combination of teens, parents, and elders from their congregations all supporting the Vineland School Board’s decision to repeal the policy.
We congratulate the Vineland community for speaking out and encouraging the school board and their attorney not to cower to the threats from out-of-town activists who intimidate weaker elected officials to surrender to their political social agenda.
If your school board has questions regarding the clear legal decision that policy #5756 is NOT mandatory, please contact Shawn Hyland, our Director of Advocacy. He will be able to supply your local board of education with a timeline of facts that clarifies the status of policy #5756. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Second, as many of you are aware, the Division of Civil Rights (DCR) denied our motion to intervene in the Attorney General’s case against Hanover, Middletown, Marlboro, and Manalapan. Attorney Karyn White, our partner at the Pacific Justice Institute, was contacted this week by the DCR. They did grant Amicus Curiae status and accepted the brief supporting the constitutional right of the Board of Educations to protect parental rights. Therefore, even though we are not a party/defendant in the case, our arguments will be taken into consideration.

And let others know what is happening! The media does not want to inform the public of the serious dangers this bill presents.
