National organizations of parents are expressing outrage over the Biden Department of Justice’s (DOJ) intention to direct the FBI to mobilize against parents who oppose CRT and mask mandates in K-12 schools and speak out about their concerns.
Parents Defending Education is urging Americans to email the U.S. Justice Department and express opposition to the creation of a “’task force’ to silence parents who are non-violently speaking out for their children at school board meetings.”
If you haven’t already, message @TheJusticeDept and let them know you oppose creating a “task force” to silence parents who are non-violently speaking out for their children at school board meetings: https://t.co/Me84S5FimD https://t.co/Ub9Rh6Rl6o

“We do not, have not, and will not advocate violence,” the parents’ group stated. “Over the past year, thousands of Americans have petitioned their elected officials for a redress of grievances – as is their right, guaranteed by the First Amendment – and they will continue to do so.”
