Moms for Liberty is a quintessential grassroots organization. It is made up of people who are tired of putting up with the status quo, people who want future generations of students in the United States educated well, people who recognize that it is parents who carry the responsibility of raising and educating their children.
The name Moms for Liberty is a bit of a misgnomer. The organization welcomes moms, yes, but also dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends. Actually, anyone who wishes to see parental rights protected is welcomed to become a member. You do not have to be a mom, or even a woman for that matter (although it does help to be channeling a bit of the mama bear, truth be told).
The real reason for the name? The organization was established by two Florida moms, Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich. The two former schoolboard members were understandably upset after seeing first hand how short-sighted and destructive school policies were becoming, and just how much those policies were hurting children and families. Tiffany and Tina decided to use their first-hand knowledge and experience to help parents engage in the fight for their liberties. So began Moms for Liberty.
While the national organization sets the vision, tone, and operational framework, it is the responsibility of the county chapters to fill in the details. This is a very large, very diverse nation, with each county or parish having a bit different flavor and taking a local approach to protecting parental rights. And that's the right approach to take.
The umbrella group wisely lets the county chapters organize themselves as they see fit. The influx of new county chapters being brought online continues to grow. If you would like to establish a chapter for your county, be sure to let the national organization know.
