Stop the Gender Agenda

While the Gender Agenda claims to be working for inclusion and tolerance, in truth it is a Marxist-inspired campaign that seeks to redefine the meaning of “sex,” promote gender-transitioning, sexualize students with age-inappropriate sex education classes and Drag Queen Shows, and more.

Joe Biden’s Executive Orders of January 20, 2021 and March 8, 2021 marked a dramatic acceleration of the Gender Agenda. These initiatives are creating harmful effects in many areas of our society:

  1. Gender Transitioning
  2. Parental Rights
  3. Women’s Sports
  4. Due Process
  5. Domestic Violence
  6. Free Speech

In response, over 200 organizations have established the Title IX Network to oppose the Biden Title IX regulation.
