The Colson Center was among the original signatories of the Promise to America’s Children and the Promise to America’s Parents. A recent incident in Colorado shows why these promises are so important.  

An 11-year-old girl on a school trip was assigned to share a bed with a male student who identified as female. Her parents were not given notice that this bed- and room-sharing would even occur. Thankfully, her mom was also on the trip and intervened when her daughter called in a panic.  

Alliance Defending Freedom is representing the parents to hold the school district accountable. No school should ever enforce ideology at the expense of a child. Parents must protect the minds, bodies, and essential relationships of their children. This means that parents must never be kept in the dark, especially by schools and doctors.
