    IMPORTANT Letter to Congress signed by CCV

    May 25th, 2016

    Family Groups Call on Congress to Curtail Obama’s Bathroom Agenda

    Citizens for Community Values (CCV), working with Family Policy Alliance and Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council, sent a letter to Congress asking them to pass legislation that curtails the Obama Administration’s “guidance” redefining “sex” in Title IX.

    “As you are aware, executive agencies are not permitted to redefine a federal statute,” the letter reads. “Rather, legislative power is vested in the legislative branch. The Administration is clearly attempting to bypass the legislative process and ignore the original legislative intent, which did not intend to encompass claims of discrimination based on gender identity.”

    A CALL TO ACTION – Obama’s war on children

    May 20th, 2016

    The recent actions by the Obama Administration in threatening the funding for schools if they do not acquiesce to an “open policy” for admission of any gender, including children struggling with gender identity disorders, to bathroom, shower and locker facilities in their school’s borders on tyranny.

    No child should be forced into an intimate setting like a restroom or locker room with a person of the opposite sex.   Letting boys into girls’ restrooms, whether or not there is a gender identity disorder issue,  is an invasion of privacy and a threat to children’s safety.  The Obama Justice Department and the Department of Education are threatening this punitive action to force compliance to something that no law mandates.

    Just When You Thought it Couldn’t Get Any Worst!

    May 13th, 2016

    The Obama administration sending a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms is unbelievable even for the Obama administration. Since 1992 CCV has been warning anyone who would listen where these false claims of discrimination by homosexual activist would lead. This is outrageous, and CCV will demand that the new president rescinds all of Obama’s Executive Orders.

    Obama Administration Guidelines on Bathrooms Lack Legal Authority

    ALLIANCE DEFENDING FREEDOM COMMENT

    May 13, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CONTACT ADF MEDIA RELATIONS: (480) 444-0020 or www.adfmedia.org/home/contact


    The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jeremy Tedesco regarding guidelines that the Obama administration issued to public schools and universities nationwide Friday that reinforce its political goal of forcing women to share restrooms and locker rooms with men despite the lack of any support in federal law for that position:

    “The administration’s new guidelines simply reinforce what has been abundantly clear already—that it has a political goal of forcing women to share restrooms and locker rooms with men across the nation and will spread falsehoods about federal law to achieve its aims. This is precisely why we have filed two federal lawsuits, one in Illinois and one in North Carolina, on behalf of parents and students who are understandably concerned about their children. Solutions exist to accommodate everyone without violating anyone’s privacy rights, but the administration won’t entertain those solutions because of its preference to unlawfully impose its political will through threats and intimidation.”
