PARENTS: It’s Time To Push Back And BE HEARD... SIGN PETITION NOW   
After 10+ Years, The Time Has Come... 
It's time to take all that we've learned, battled through, and become... to a new level.

This new level means an updated logo for DFPC that captures who we are and best reflects: 

-Our Gospel Centric core and approach
-Our Family focused mission
-Our unique Delaware history
-Our four generations of supporters

You may not hear it much anymore, but Delaware is known as "The Diamond State." Delaware was first given that nickname by Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, who referred to Delaware as the "Jewel among the States." 

We asked some of our members from each generation what the diamond meant to them. We heard words like "Strength," "Indestructible," "Marriage"... and most importantly, we heard a phrase that accurately captures where we've been and who we've become....
FORGED UNDER PRESSURE
The diamond, as a symbol, has a consistent meaning across the generations! That's a big deal!

The challenge then became how to communicate the rest of our story using the inside of the diamond. 

After months of prayer, look what happened when we put the letters D-F-P-C inside the diamond!
YES! There it is, right in the middle... 
The Cross for our Gospel Centric Core. 

The four areas created inside the diamond reflect the foundational, family-focused issues we cover: Life, Marriage, Family, and Religious Liberty.
What do the colors represent?
GREEN (Top Left) - our commitment to protecting LIFE at all stages.
 
NAVY (Bottom Left) - the color used by our National coalition partners.
 
DELAWARE FLAG COLORS (Right Side) - The color of Delaware's flag is said to have been chosen to honor General George Washington. His iconic blue sash symbolized the insurgency.  
George Washington, known as "The Father of the Nation," is remembered for his character, bravery, and so much more. He was also called "The Kneeling President" because he was often found praying. The following quote encapsulates why we are proud to have our flag and our new logo tied to his honor. 

"Of all the habits and dispositions which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who works to subvert these great pillars." --George Washington
WHAT WE STAND FOR DEFINES US-- IT ALWAYS HAVE.
We hope that you love what this new logo means and represents. 

Will you partner with us and fuel our mission forward in Delaware?
Parental rights, your child's safety and privacy... How you vote on nov. 6th will have a direct impact.  
Every Parent can relate to Pasha's story:
Imagine your five-year-old daughter coming home from school and telling you how she was touched by a boy, sexually assaulted, while she was in the girls’ bathroom. Now imagine going to school officials – the ones you trust with your child during school hours – and being told that nothing is going to be done about it.
Policies like Regulation 225 assert the terms “gender identity” and “sex” interchangeably to prohibit "discrimination." 

Meaning, gender is redefined and taught differently throughout the entire educational system. 

When Gender is redefined, it creates concern for the safety and privacy of all students.

Students like Alexis below are well aware that biology is the reason that sex-specific private facilities were established in the first place—and it’s for that reason that student privacy matters.
Alexis Lightcap's story: fighting For Her Voice, and her privacy.
“I don’t have a problem sharing a bathroom with someone who identifies as transgender—provided they are the same sex I am. I do have trouble...with school officials who value the feelings of a few students more than the dignity and privacy of all those in their care.”
Alexis was basically told that her "discomfort" at not wanting to share private space with a boy is her problem.

There's no recourse for a student who feels pressured to undress, shower, or share overnight accommodations with individuals of the opposite sex. 

Regressive policies like this result in young women losing their right to free speech and privacy from males.
On Nov. 6th, Vote for candidates who will stand to protect the free speech and privacy of women
Parents pushed back on Regulation 225 in Delaware because it was a direct affront to parental rights and it created safety and privacy concerns for their students. 

But why were parents put in this position by the state? And, will it happen again?

Parents responded and pushed back, and the regulation was pulled. For now. But it was attempted in the form of a resolution in the legislature, and it may very well come back as a bill. 

In response to this radical regulation... and the realization that it could have been easily implemented if parents had not been quickly made aware of it... a bill was introduced to amend Delaware's Constitution to recognize parental rights. The success of this legislation to protect your rights as a parent depends entirely on who we elect on Nov. 6th. 

On NOV. 6TH, we must vote for candidates who will work to protect fundamental responsibility and right of parents to care for and raise their children.

IMPORTANT: Consider the information below and commit to stay informed and connected to your kids daily in knowing what they are being taught, and navigating them with the truth.

Teaching material like the "genderbread person" or the "gender unicorn" are used in many schools across the nation, to teach elementary students a new definition of gender. 
Sex and gender identity are two very different concepts. Gender identity is based on a person’s feelings, while sex is determined by biology.

Policies like Regulation 225 ignore biological sex, making it discriminatory to separate the sexes based on biological and scientific fact.

Children as young as kindergarten are taught that they can choose their gender based on how they feel inside. The "Gingerbread Person 2.0" and "the Gender Unicorn" are only two examples of the teaching tools for young students.
The popular book "George" is another example of a teaching tool for elementary students. It's a story of a 10-year-old boy who is hiding his true identity from his family and friends but unveils his true self to the community in a school production of Charlotte's Web. 

In addition to its promotion of sexual politics, the book undermines parental authority by casting George's mother as a "non-ally" while the school principal (whose office is decorated with LGBTQ affirming posters) saves the day. 

This message of parents as the "non-ally" is the justification used to have secret conversations with children without parents knowing.

LISTEN BELOW to the transgender presentation to Delaware Middle and High School Students by the "Yes Institute," an organization that has made presentations in schools throughout Delaware.
This presentation was given to middle school students in Delaware by a person who looked like a man, had a beard, married to a woman, but is biologically a woman and can carry and give birth to a baby. The presentation started asking middle and high school students, "What is gender?"
