Under the guise of fighting poverty, bills have been introduced that would lead to tracking students throughout their life. Specifically HR 4174 would implement recommendations from a commission created last year which would remove the prohibition on lifelong tracking of students through college and the workforce.

Election Day is November 7th and there are no off-year elections . Pennsylvania is one of the few states which allow voters to choose their judges. You will be able to vote for one Supreme Court Judge, four Superior Court judges and two Commonwealth Court judges. We’ll also be able to vote to retain or not two Supreme Court judges and one Superior Court judge. Each of these terms is for ten years. There will also be local races such as mayor, district attorney, sheriff, corner, borough council, township supervisor and school board. It is definitely NOT an election to sit out!
Governor Tom Wolf is seeking to promote the current Physician General and Acting Secretary of Health, Dr. “Rachel” Levine, to be the next full-time Secretary of Health.

Every two years the majority of schools in Pennsylvania administer the Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS). It is an intrusive survey asking students about criminal acts, suicide, guns, alcohol and illegal drug use of not only the student, but the student’s family. There are also several questions about the student’s relationship with their mother and father, insults and arguments within the family, siblings’ alcohol and drug use, etc. Check out the questions and see if you want your child to participate!
The promoters of porn claim there are no harms, yet increasingly the harms of porn are being exposed. We see increased sexual assault (i.e. child on child assault, teacher on student assault, babies being sexuall assaulted, campus rape culture etc), sex trafficking is on the rise, sexual addictions, etc. etc. We need to become educated on the harms of pornography!
By many this is considered an off-year election because the only statewide races are judicial races. However, one thing we can’t forget is NO election is unimportant. Decisions that these judges make will help or harm everyone. The questions are: Will they follow the US and PA Constitutions or will they legislate from the bench? Will they be part of the judicial tyranny problem or will they uphold their oath of office?
Parental rights are slowly being stripped away by an overreaching government. Recent court cases have, too many times, sided with the state and not parents. Parental rights should be fundamental rights protected in the Constitution and not tossed aside by an ever intrusive government. Come to hear about recent parental rights cases, actions that are being taken to protect parental rights and steps you can take to join in the effort.
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued two very important memos addressing Title VII and religious freedom. Both of these had been misinterpreted over the last eight years which resulted in misrepresenting what the original intents of the authors of Title VII and the First Amendment were. These memos bring common sense back into these documents.
