Join us for the Summit on Protecting Children from Sexualization on Wednesday, October 9 co-hosted by the Family Policy Alliance and The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.
This gathering of policy experts and practitioners will help us work together to advance conservative solutions to protect children from sexualization in culture, education, and healthcare. We seek to leverage our strengths and work together to protect the most vulnerable.
The program will dive into the increasingly early exposure of children to sexual messages, images, and themes at younger and younger ages, including through social media, school curriculum, and controversial medical treatments to treat gender dysphoria. The panelists will discuss the problems faced by parents and children, educators, and medical professionals and highlight why it's critical to preserve parental rights, freedom of conscience, and free speech in order to protect children from unwanted sexualization. Please join us for these important conversations. The event will begin at 8:30 with registration. Panels are open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.
