What's the story about these groups and women? Most of the photos you showed had no women in them. What's their "position" about women? And, what do we know about the women who join/affiliate with them? Can women "join" their groups?

I just found the PROTECT petition and was able to sign and send to our governor and senators. The page offers a way to share this petition on our Facebook page but when I tried to do this, it led me to an Error message. I hope ADL can fix this so we can easily share this with our contacts.

The Cristian Coalition/Christian Right in the 1990's used the same techniques to build a grassroots base for building political power -- i.e., they picked a hot issue (sex education) to use in attacking school boards and school systems in order to run candidates for school committee (sometimes "stealth" candidates). This happened here in Massachusetts (including Newton, Concord, Braintree, Harvard). Does this movement now have a connection to Christian Right organizatons, such as Focus on the Family?

Did we ask a question about the role of the justice dept. garland has been under attack… is this justified?
Louise Freedman
02:05:23
It’s also a little late but movies, TV, and museums are now playing catch up in addressing their lack of diversity esp. in awardsand art. This is something positive if teachers can’t tell our history I.e. Slavery, the Holocaust, Japanese internment and Indigenous People From Louise Freedman
