Quiet Calling
By Sophia Lee
On a recent Saturday evening, hundreds gathered at an Orange County, Calif., church to testify, worship, and pray for one another. Nothing surprising about that.

As a mother of color, I have long looked to American courts to right wrongs and serve justice when systemic injustices continue to occur, especially in education.

By Mike Antonucci
In 2013 a Massachusetts Teachers Association task force created “Threat from the Right,” a document designed to alert members to the evil forces arrayed against them.

I have made the 101-page report available on EIA’s Declassified page.

By Liberty Counsel
Liberty Counsel filed a Petition for Appeal requesting that the Virginia Supreme Court hear the case against the School Board of Fairfax County regarding its illegal policy involving “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” and “gender expression.” Virginia civil rights laws explicitly prohibit local governing bodies from altering the state’s nondiscrimination policy.

Transgender Medical Abuse of Children
By Linda Harvey

In the recent federal transgender bathroom mandate, Obama and his pro-homosexual and pro-transgender agencies attempt to use children and bathrooms to unilaterally overhaul civil rights law in this country.
