Critical Race Theory Exposed Events in Missouri

By | Missouri | No Comments

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri has scheduled Critical Race Theory Exposed (CRT) events in Missouri. The CRT event is an important educational presentation presented by Mary Bryne, Ed.D.

Dr. Byrne’s presentation explains how current events, most notably the recent violence ignited by claims of systemic racism, are grounded in critical race theory; and how critical race theory is grounded in Karl Marx’s writing instructing followers how to start a revolution in a nation.

Dr. Byrne’s will reveal how almost two centuries of Marxism have infiltrated the U.S. government, the law, churches, the military, and education. She will explain how there is a current concerted effort to indoctrinate Missouri school children by instilling the Critical Race Theory curriculum into the public school system.

Dr. Byrne is a national speaker and co-founding member of the Missouri Coalition Against Common Core. She has an M.A. in special education and an M.Ed. in curriculum and instructional design, and a doctorate in special education from Teachers College at Columbia University.

Plan to attend to find out what Critical Race Theory (CRT) is, why it’s very concerning for our public schools, and what you can do to protect the children in your community.

YWA Leader Testifies on Virginia Girls’ Sports Bill

By | News and Events, Women's Sports, YWA | No Comments

On January 30, 2023, Young Women for America Ambassador Halli Gravley testified before the Virginia House of Delegates Higher Education Subcommittee Hearing in support of HB 1387, a fairness in women’s sports bill.


As a current female athlete on a college synchronized skating team in Virginia, Halli provided a much-needed perspective in this discussion. Furthermore, as an Ambassador for Young Women for America, Halli was able to “represent not only myself as an athlete but also young women across this state and this country who believe one of the most foundational truths that have existed from the beginning of time – God created two distinct sexes male and female. Allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports is an attack on science— on physical reality— and a betrayal of women’s rights.”


You can watch Halli’s shortened testimony here or read her statement in full here.


Halli is no stranger to the fight to defend the integrity of women’s sports as she testified a year ago in her home state of Kentucky in support of HB 23, the Save Women’s Sports Act, which passed and was signed into law.


HB 1387 passed the Higher Education Subcommittee, and we are looking forward to the day when the option to protect women’s sports in Virginia ends up on Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s desk.

Left to Right: Riley Gaines, Halli Gravley, Marshi Smith, and Abi Prudent. Riley and Marshi are some of our friends in the fairness in women’s sports coalition. Abi is a classmate of Halli’s, and she also testified in support of HB 1387.

Action Needed: 1st and 14th Amendment Rights Threatened

By | North Dakota | No Comments

Will you help pass a great piece of legislation? An important bill relating to preferred pronouns and school policies on expressed gender was heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee members on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. A member of the committee, Sen. Larry Luick (R-District 25), sponsored the bill. See his contact information below and send Sen. Luick a message to thank him!
The First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of employees are being threatened. SB 2231 protects those rights! Forcing teachers to use “preferred pronouns” infringes on a teacher’s right to free speech and the free exercise of religion. Policies that require a student to be referred to by gender, non-binary, or plural pronouns, or other gendered languages that are different from the student’s biological sex violate the religious belief that God assigns sex at conception and is a conflict for those unwilling to compromise their beliefs.
Read Concerned Women for America (CWA)’s important information on this issue. Campus Insanity – Concerned Women for America and Back to School and “Gender Identity” Indoctrination – Concerned Women for America
CWA of North Dakota submitted written and online audio testimony on the bill. The Senate Judiciary members will be voting on SB 2231 as early as Monday, January 30.
The Senate Committee Members must hear from those who stand with us on prohibiting a public school from adopting a policy or practice regarding expressed gender. Please urge the committee members to give SB 2231 a do-pass recommendation.
Please Take Action:

  1. Email or call the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee listed below my signature line and ask them to vote a “Do Pass” on SB 2231. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of North Dakota, please let them know. Do not hesitate to leave a message on their voicemail.
  2. Forward this email to family and friends! Every email message and every phone call are counted!

Suggested message:

Please vote “Do Pass” on HB 2231. Protect the First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of Public School teachers.

Please Pray: Pray for our legislators on the Senate Judiciary Committee by name that God would give them the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

Moral Apathy and Moral Corruption: Two Sides of the Same Coin

By | Defense of Family, LBB, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Thanks to the outstanding investigative work of Mia Cathell at Townhall, the public got a glimpse into the heinous crimes committed by a radical LGBTQ+ activist couple against their two adopted children (9 and 11 years old now). A grand jury indicted William Dale Zulock, Jr. and Zachary Jacoby Zulock on charges including “incest, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, felony sexual exploitation of children, and felony prostitution of a minor.”


The two, explains Cathell, were “darlings of the LGBTQ media” who were “part of an anti-gay hate campaign promoting ‘# NOH8′” and whose pictures were featured several times on the largest LGBTQ+ monthly publication in the nation, Out magazine.


The alleged charges must suffice for our purposes; the investigation details are too upsetting (see Cathell’s entire series, being mindful of their content warning—it is hard to get through). We can simply say this is the worst type of abuse against children. These poor children were in third and fourth grades. Some abuse was allegedly filmed to satisfy the perverted desires of the men. And they even allegedly offered their children up to other men. All the while threatening them, saying things like, “Our business is our business. What happens in our home, stays in our home.”


To think of what these children have gone through is genuinely heartbreaking. So, you can imagine how my heart sank to discover that the adoption of these children, which opened the door to this unimaginable abuse, was facilitated by a “Christian special-needs adoption agency.” I’m sorry, what? Yes, Cathell didn’t specify at first but later revealed it was an agency called “All God’s Children, Inc.”


So, here is where I’d like to focus your attention as Christians for a moment and appeal to your sense of righteousness and zeal for the Name of our Lord. We simply cannot stand silent while so many Christians today celebrate and support sin in the name of Christ. It is heresy. Those who choose to identify themselves as Christians bear the name of Christ. They cannot condone and celebrate sin in any of its forms. Not within and not without.


As Christians, we are tacitly complicit in the worst types of abuses when we remain silent to the trampling of God’s loving standards for us in the name of tolerance or anything else. Put another way, we cannot violate the first commandment of Christ (to love God above all, with all our hearts, soul, and mind) to promote the world’s distortion of our Lord’s second command (to love our neighbors as ourselves). See Matthew 22:37-40.


When we manipulate God’s Word, we weaken the only good and perfect standard for any sort of sustainable moral order. If Christians agree with the world that there is no objective standard, that God’s law is relative to our personal preferences, then it is impossible to establish some arbitrary human-created line of morality further along because we believe, oh now, “that” is too far. Says who? That might be too far for you, but I have my own truth. Isn’t that what we say? Isn’t that what millions of Christians go along with every day here in America?


To be clear. The connection I want us to draw is not between sexual orientation and child abuse and pedophilia (see this recent encounter for other examples of this depravity). Instead, the connection is between moral apathy and moral corruption.


As Cathell investigated the now conveniently defunct agency, she found a post of “All God’s Children, Inc. at the First Presbyterian Church of Athens, GA.” The report does not go into more detail about the church, but I got curious.


Not surprisingly, a quick search of First Presbyterian Church of Athens, GA, reveals that it is hosting (just as I write this on January 26, 2023) an event alongside PFLAG, “the nation’s largest family and ally organization for LGBTQIA+ people.” Here is the description of the event:


In partnership with Athens Pride Queer Collective, Pflag Athens Area will host a discussion circle during the LGBTQ+ youth group meeting time. We will meet separately from the youth group to have a free and open conversation between family members, parents, and LGBTQ+ allies. Mask wearing at your discretion.


Now you can see how a “Christian” adoption agency, like All God’s Children, Inc., would be eager to place children in a pro-LGBTQ+ home when it is born out of their theology. To affirm LGBTQ+ relationships is to do the work of their god. It is a work of the heart. Forget the Word of God. This is love to them.


The many red flags in these prospective parents (including accusations of “alleged pedophilic behavior”) were really part of the stigma attached to them by a cruel society. It is something they needed to break through, not explore further, to be extra diligent in order to protect these children. We wouldn’t want to upset the prospective couple. Everyone was surprised at how fast they moved through the adoption process (#diversity!).


Liberal Christians are not like those other Christians. One of the perpetrators in this case was very public in his criticism of Rev. Billy Graham’s daughter, Cissie Graham Lynch, because she spoke in favor of protecting the religious freedom of Christian organizations that are constantly harassed by government to abandon their faith if they want to do charity work. Cathell quotes Zachary as saying in a Facebook post, “What about all the LGBTQ couples out there that have been stopped from adopting?! What about their rights?”


The church that helped them adopt would agree. So would many other Christians today— even famous pastors. Your local pastor may use some of the teaching materials from these churches.


Andy Stanley, who has been on the pro-LGBTQ+ line for many years and whose materials are used all over this country, was recently featured praising the faith of his LGBTQ+ friends over any of his other congregants. The church needs to learn from them. “I know the verses; I know the clobber passages,” he said.


But again, the authority of Christ is the issue. Belief in God’s Word (His standards) is the issue. Stanley actively advocates diminishing God’s Word, especially the Old Testament, to be more appealing to the world. Moral apathy will give you a better hearing.


But this new form of liberal Christianity is the theological force behind the moral corruption we are all witnessing. And we must ask whether we are part of the problem. Am I showing signs of moral apathy in my own life?


David describes the workers of iniquity as those “Who speak peace to their neighbors, but evil is in their hearts” (Psalm 28:3). He prays to God against their efforts because “they do not regard the works of the Lord, nor the operation of His hands” (Psalm 28:5).


Are we doing the same? Are we showing so little regard for the Word of God that we are really promoting a false sense of peace? Again, we must ask, has my moral indifference given space to the moral corruption I see all around me?


If the answer is “yes,” we must repent. We must turn back to the God of Scripture – the whole of Scripture. We must proclaim His standards are best. Indeed, we must attest there is no other foundation for liberty and freedom known to man. True love protects.


There is only one way – the Jesus way.

Action Alert: Protect U.S. Constitution

By | South Dakota | No Comments

A bad resolution will be heard in House State Affairs committee next week. HJR 5002 is an application to Congress for an Article V Constitutional Convention. Those who call for a Constitutional Convention are crafty and always include a “hook” issue in which people in the state are interested. This particular application is a request for a Constitutional Convention dealing with term limits.


Term limits come with unexpected consequences, including denying a voter the liberty to re-elect his or her candidate of choice. John Adams, second President of the United States, said, “The people should be at liberty to choose the ablest and best men – yet, upon the present [term limits] supposition, the people voluntarily resign this right, and shackle their own choice.” The best term limits are elections. (We “termed” out Sen. Tom Daschle.) Read more about terms limits here.


Most importantly, we know that a Constitutional Convention might not be limited to one subject. It could open the U.S. Constitution for any amendments that the delegates desire. It could weaken our Second Amendment or put unfettered taxpayer abortion in the Constitution. It could rewrite the entire Constitution, as there are already rewrites waiting for such an occasion. Read our brochure The Constitution is Not the Problem.


Former Justice Antonin Scalia said, “A Constitutional Convention is a horrible idea.”


ACTION: Contact the members of the House State Affairs Committee and urge them to vote NO on HJR 5002. You may use one or more of my talking points in your comment. Put “Vote No on HJR5002” in the subject line.


Also contact your two representatives with the same message. Click here for the list of representatives and their contact information. If you do not know who your state representatives are, click here. Include your name and address so they know you are a constituent. Legislators have asked that we indicate on the subject line your legislative district, for example, “from District 9.”


PRAYER: Father, we thank you for our country and the amazing founding document you directed brilliant men to create. We ask Your protection of our U.S. Constitution from those who wish to do mischief with it. We ask that American citizens would be knowledgeable about our government and that lawmakers would obey the Constitution. Bless our nation with righteousness and revival. May we be a nation that blesses and honors You.


God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action.

Action Needed! Make a call on behalf of North Dakota female athletes.

By | North Dakota | No Comments

You can make a difference in North Dakota by praying and acting on two important bills being considered during the 2023 North Dakota legislative session. HB 1249 and HB 1489 relating to fair competition and equality in girls’ sports for all North Dakota female athletes.


HB 1249 and HB 1489 will protect women’s sports at high schools and institutions of higher education by “designating athletic teams and sports for male, female or coed participation.” This legislation prohibits male-born athletes from entering women’s sports as transwomen.


Read Concerned Women for America’s Protecting Women’s Sports CWA Fact Sheet for important information on this issue.


I submitted testimony in favor of the bills and urged the committee members to give HB 1249 and HB 1489 a do-pass recommendation. The House Human Services Committee Members must hear from those who stand with us on protecting girls’ sports in High Schools (HB 1249) and at institutions of higher education (HB 1489).


Please Take Action:

  1. Email or call the members of the House Human Services Committee listed below my signature line and ask them to vote a “Do Pass” on HB 1249 and HB 1489. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of North Dakota, please let them know. Do not hesitate to leave a message on their voicemail.
  2. Forward this email to family and friends! Every email message and every phone call are counted!


Please Pray: Pray for our legislators on the House Human Service Committee by name, that God would give them the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12


Suggested message:

Please vote “Do Pass” on HB 1249 and HB 1289. Protect equal opportunity and a fair playing field for girls’ and women’s sports. Individual male-born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females.

“So, God Created man in His own image, in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27


HB1387, a bill to help ensure fairness in women’s sports, has been introduced by Delegate Karen Greehalgh (R-District 85). HB1387 has been assigned to the House Education Committee. The Higher Education Subcommittee is expected to hear HB1387 this coming Monday morning, January 30, 2023. It is important that the Chairman and members of the committee hear from you.


Fair competition and equality in women’s sports are being threatened, and this legislation will combat that. Individual male born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females – from kindergarten to high school to college.


Many biological girls train and work hard to excel in their chosen sport with the goal of a college scholarship. When a biological boy who thinks he’s a girl is allowed to compete with the biological girls because of his natural endurance and strength, he steals the prize. This ought not to be so.


Read CWA’s Protecting Women’s Sports CWA Fact Sheet 2022.


ACTION: Contact the members of the House Education Committee and ask them to vote yes on HB 1387. Click here for both the phone number and email address of the House Education Committee members. If you are a member of CWA of Virginia, be sure to let them know.


Please forward this information to family and friends.


Please PRAY: Father God, we give thanks for another day of life. We give thanks for Delegate Greenhalgh and her willingness to file HB 1387. We pray for the Virginia House of Delegates Education Committee and their handling of this legislation. We pray that the committee members will not be overcome with timidity and “political correctness” and will handle this issue with wisdom and courage. In Jesus’ name, we pray, AMEN.

Save the Date for the 3rd Annual Pennsylvania March for Life!

By | Pennsylvania | No Comments

 “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”  Micah 6:8


Share the truth, joy, goodness, and beauty of life by joining Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania and thousands of pro-life individuals from around the state at the 3rd Annual Pennsylvania  March for Life on October 16, 2023.


Let’s show the nation once again that Pennsylvania wants to see laws that reflect a culture of life. Every human life has dignity inside and outside of the womb. Every unborn child is a wonder! Both mom, dad, unborn child, and born child have value, are priceless, and have been bought with an unmatched price through the blood of Jesus Christ.


CWA of Pennsylvania is proud to march with each of you in this new Dobbs era, for we know our job is not done yet! We are watching the landscape of abortions change in our nation. Chemical abortions are on the rise within our state, while mobile abortion units may soon come to a community near you. Pro-life leaders and pregnancy resource centers that provide tangible care are being attacked.   


Abortion is now a state matter, so now more than ever, we need to remain committed to the conviction that unborn babies are made in the image of God and, as such, deserving of the rights God has given to all people. That is why I am asking you to join us Monday, October 16, in Harrisburg as we march to protect the most vulnerable and let the women of Pennsylvania know they are not alone! Make sure you save the date and keep looking for more details to come your way.


From knees to feet,

Call to Action

More importantly, Alex Newman will share what you, and every Missourian, can do about it!

If you are concerned about what is happening (and not happening) in our public schools, and even some private schools today, you will not want to miss Alex Newman and his presentation “Save Our Children!”

Liberty in Law Dinner with Alex Newman

Concerned Women for America of Missouri (CWA) invites you to join us for a presentation by Alex Newman, at the Liberty in Law Dinner, Monday, January 30, 2023, in Jefferson City.


Alex Newman, an award-winning international journalist, educator, author, speaker, and consultant, will speak on the importance of getting children out of public schools as quickly as possible.


His reasons for this are many and stem from the global agendas being forced into the curriculum.

These include socialism and communism-both failed experiments in other parts of the world-as well as the ever-expanding sexual education. This “education” only begins at the “drag queen story hours” that we have been hearing about for years.


Now, schools can hide sex change services from parents, and educational materials go so far as to teach about the pedophilia present in ancient Greece.


Furthermore, these schools are teaching Islamic and Buddhist principles, while banning prayer in schools, as part of the “global education” that schools are moving toward. Ultimately, they hope for a “world core curriculum” that will have the same standards for every child in every school in the world. This has always been the goal, Newman says, and is a sign to parents: get your children out of government schools.


Date: Monday, January 30, 2023
Time: 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Missouri Baptist Convention Building, 400 E. High Street, Jefferson City, MO
Cost and Registration: Tickets are $30. Click here to purchase tickets. Registration fee is non-tax-deductible.
Contact: For additional information call Bev Ehlen at 314-608-0168 or by email at   [email protected]


The Annual Liberty in Law Dinner is co-sponsored by Concerned Women for America of Missouri, the John Birch Society, and United for Principled Politics.


We hope to see you there.

Action Alert: Don’t Harm Our Children

By | South Dakota | No Comments

“It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.” Luke 17:2


You may recall our efforts to target Sanford Health for co-hosting the Midwest Gender Identity Summit with the Transformation Project on January 13 at the Sanford Research Center in Sioux Falls. The mission of the Transformation Project is “supporting and empowering transgender youth,” thus promoting the lie that “men and women can change their gender.”


We are grateful for HB1080, sponsored by Rep. Bethany Soye (R-District 9), to “prohibit certain medical and surgical interventions on minor children.”  HB1080 would prohibit the radical “treatment” for gender dysphoria, which involves puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and irreversible surgeries like double mastectomies and genital removal or reconstruction to “become” the opposite sex. Damages to the minor for such treatment may result in civil action.


Additionally, if a healthcare professional is in violation of the terms of HB1080, their professional license must be revoked. Furthermore, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Dakota finds these activities very disturbing, especially among a healthcare institution that takes an oath to “do not harm.” Ironically, healthcare providers blatantly deny the science that tells us one cannot change their God-given sex. Children struggling with gender dysphoria should be protected from unethical medical interventions that ignore underlying causes and reject long-term health and well-being.  


You may find more information on CWA’s website here.


ACTION: Email your two representatives and urge them to Vote YES on HB1080 to protect our children. Click here for the list of representatives and their contact information. If you do not know who your state representatives are, click here. Include your name and address so they know you are a constituent. Legislators have asked that we indicate on the subject line your legislative district, for example, “from District 9.” They get so many emails and are only concerned about their constituents. Also, if you are a member of CWA of South Dakota, be sure to let them know.


PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we pray for those struggling with gender dysphoria that they will believe the truth about Your design for them found in Scripture and reject the lies of Satan. You say in Word in Genesis 1:27, “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” We ask for protection of the hearts and minds of all our children, and we pray for Christians to courageously and lovingly speak God’s truth about Your design for sexuality in a confused and needy world.

CWA Cosigns Letter to CVS and Walgreens

Concerned Women for America cosigned a letter to Walgreens and CVS regarding the recent changes by the government to allow pharmacies to dispense chemical abortion. CVS and Walgreens announced their plans to seek certification to stock and fulfill prescriptions for mifepristone (the first part of a two-part regimen to complete a chemical abortion). The letter outlines a long list of potential legal, policy, media, and cultural concerns these pharmacies should consider when deciding on becoming abortion businesses.
