Our Mission & Goals

Founded in 2022, the mission of the Virginians For Children First is to defend our children, and support the parents and teachers of Virginia. 

Our focus is to hold our school board and administrators accountable to ensure they are upholding our rights under the Constitution of the United States of America. 

We will not allow government overreach in education and we will protect our children’s innocence from harmful agendas at all costs through litigation, and transparent communication to the community. 

Educating and empowering our community with resources, training, advocacy opportunities, community events to bring awareness of what’s happening in our public schools, and restore common sense back in education.

Tell Superintendent Balow and Governor Youngkin that the Social Emotional Learning Legislation, HB753, does not have to be transformative SEL by CASEL; which is done through a lens of equity and social justice, meaning their guidance on divisive concepts has been recognized by the PARENTS FOR YOUNGKIN as nothing more than smoke and mirrors.

We have big things in motion and as a non-profit, every penny you donate will go straight to doing HUGE things for the 1.25 million children in public schools in the commonwealth and for those children whose parents want them to be in public schools but know IT ISNT SAFE!
Nonprofit law firms are swamped. The rest of the attorneys are predators charging $400 for a 1 hr consultation and $25,000 retainers.
America has zero chance of survival if we do not save these children- your grandchildren and great-grandchildren certainly will have no future under a communist America which is where we are headed with Government Education.
EVERYTHING we do for these kids costs money- collecting evidence through FOIA, $3k-$30k bills we have gotten- always paid out of pocket- renting meeting space, TIME putting together presentations to educate and inform and give parents their power back!

You can not fight what you do not understand and “understanding” in this day and age means flipping the coin over, even if just for a quick study, to gain perspective into what it looks like to see the world through the “lens” the other side views EVERYTHING through.
When you have the information to talk more comfortably about what you know in your heart is wrong or simply doesn’t make sense it is amazing the strength you will find in yourself to be honest and more open with what you see going on in the world around you.

The federal government and the Department of Education seems to forget more and more every day that parents are recognized as having the primary responsibility for the upbringing of their children, including education. “It is States and communities, as well as public and private organizations of all kinds, that establish schools and colleges, develop curricula, and determine requirements for enrollment and graduation. The structure of education finance in America reflects this predominant State and local role.”

There are more way to educate yourself on what is going on in public education than there have ever been before- the #1 problem is transparency and the expectation that parents and the communities paying for this “fed.ed” know, first what to look for and second where to start. Fed.ed now includes the majority of private schools and higher education after the ARP funds were handed out last year.

Every day our children go to school and have data collected on them and computed in ways we could have never imagined- because we have trusted the public school system for so long that even though our parental gut instincts told us, months, years, or even decades ago that there was something very anti-American about the slow creep of Federalized education we saw glimpses of, if not the full scope of it.

Now, with no textbooks to read through, paper tests to look over once graded, a folder of homework sent home, or even carbon interim report cards to sign and send back- those little rectangle electronic devices we once thought miraculous are tallying up positive or negative data stored in whatever mysterious realm where all we are told is that “it is safe because it is in the United States”
