“There’s information up there that they can use to take to school boards in their local areas,” he begins. “There will be opportunities … for them to invite one of our individuals to come and speak to them and to help guide them through the process in their local community. There would be various reading materials … that will be of benefit to them as well.”

“And unfortunately in the past the Church has not stood up, the pulpit has not preached out, the Christians have not taken the stand that we should have been taking down through the years to prevent things like this from happening,” he laments.
Downloads available as part of the toolkit include action steps for pastors, a legislator sample letter, a bulletin insert, and sample letters to newspaper editors and school board members.
