BREAKING: Proposed Standards Would Teach School Children Gender Is Fluid & Abortion Is Healthcare
As attacks on the family, our fundamental freedoms, and truth itself increase, we cannot be silent. Your courage to stand will inspire others to do the same. The next generation is depending on our faithfulness today!
To help empower parents and local school boards to oppose the proposed Health Standards, retain local control over their school’s health curriculums, and reaffirm the rights of parents as primary educators of their own children, NFA is helping provide resolution language and encouraging local school boards across the state to formally adopt the resolution rejecting the proposed Health Standards.
Nebraska Family Alliance was engaged throughout this year’s session, analyzing and monitoring legislation, providing testimony, informing the public, mobilizing our network, and working with senators to advance family, freedom, and life.
Rod Handley, founder and president of Character That Counts, joined the NFA Daily Spotlight this week to share how his ministry is empowering and equipping Christian men, women, and young adults to reflect Jesus in every aspect of their day-to-day lives. A relationship with Jesus Christ, character, and integrity are essential to living a life that points people to Jesus, and Character That Counts offers questioners and resources that couples and friends can use to help hold one another accountable. Regardless of the situation, may everyone we encounter witness Christ within us.
This week on the NFA Daily Spotlight, Karen and Nate discuss statewide grassroots efforts to prevent the proposed health education standards from being adopted into Nebraska’s school curriculum. Governor Pete Ricketts, along with Nebraska Family Alliance and Nebraska Catholic Conference, are visiting Nebraska communities to discuss why the unscientific information about gender identity and radical sexual content in the first draft is harmful to developing minds, hearts, and bodies. Thousands of parents, teachers, administrators, elected officials, and community members from across the state are organizing to share their concerns with the Nebraska State Board of Education, urge local school board members to adopt a resolution rejecting the standards, and speak up for children and parental rights.
Michael Pena of the Central Nebraska Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) joined the NFA Daily Spotlight this week to share how God is working through the ministry of CEF to restore families and transform lives. CEF is an international, interdenominational organization with a mission to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel, disciple children in the Word of God, and establish them and their families in a Bible-believing church. The ministry partners with local churches and Christian volunteers to host neighborhood Bible lessons, summer training camps, and after-school programs in communities worldwide! You can support the Central Nebraska chapter of CEF by praying for the staff and children, volunteering with CEF, or attending an upcoming fundraising event.
Whether its policies written by your local school board, an ordinance signed by your mayor, policies crafted by your state representative or laws passed by Congress – public policies affect you. They lay the foundation for the future of our children and grandchildren. That’s why NFA is committed to influencing policy, so that Nebraska might be a state where marriages and families thrive, life is cherished, and religious freedom is celebrated.
At Nebraska Family Alliance, prayer is the foundation of everything we do. According to 2 Chronicles 7:14, if God’s people will humble themselves, pray, and seek His face, God promises to heal the land. We believe if the body of Christ unites in prayer our state will be transformed according to His will.
The power to make a difference isn’t just with NFA, it’s with you. That’s why we are committed to providing resources so you can let your voice be heard and ignite change in your community. Being involved, starts with being informed. From information on current events through our blog, podcast, and radio programs, to practical resources to help you contact your elected representatives through our Action Alerts, we exist to empower you to make a difference in your community.
