In August of this year, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1266 into law in California. This law allows public school students to choose whichever athletic team they want to be on - male or female. Further, it also allows public school students to choose the restrooms and locker rooms of their choice - male or female. Advocates’ attorneys have been warning you of this “gender liberation” movement for years. We are now faced with this law and we plan to do something about it! Advocates for Faith & Freedom, along with other organizations, are involved in the referendum to overturn the co-ed bathroom law for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
How California Residents Can Help
- Advocates’ Murrieta office is a Petition DistributionCenter where you can pick-up petitions or you may download the petitions from the website: www.privacyforallstudents.com. We are located at 24910 Las Brisas Road, Ste. 110, Murrieta, CA 92562. Signed petitions can be delivered to our office by November 1st or you can mail them directly to: Privacy for All Students, 660 J Street, Ste. 250, Sacramento, CA 95814 by November 6th. If you are a registered voter, get a petition and gather signatures from as many concerned citizens, family, and friends as you can. (Very Important to Note: Be sure that everyone who signs the petition - up to 8 signatures – are all signing the petition from the same county they are registered in and no post office boxes, otherwise the entire petition will be invalid.)
- Ask your pastor, priest or rabbi if they would be willing to set up tables and encourage their congregation to sign the petitions. We need 505,000 signatures by the first week of November.
How Non-Californian Residents Can Help
- Please pray that we can get enough signatures so that this senseless law will be overturned. Currently this is happening in California, but it’s just a matter of time that this type of law may affect your state as well.
Now is the time for all people of California to get involved to stop this ridiculous legislation. We are reminded of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who wrote:
“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.” Strength to Love, 1963.
