Supporting Organizations

This guide is the product of a unique collaboration between organizations with very diverse political opinions and one common concern: The negative consequences of treating bodily sex as irrelevant.

Tap an organization to learn more about them.

Family Policy Alliance is a Christian ministry that advances biblical citizenship, equips and elects statesmen, promotes policy and serves an effective alliance, all committed to a common vision. We envision a nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished. When groups as diverse as those supporting this Guide come together, it’s clear that radical transgender ideology is deeply harming parents, women and children. This Guide sheds light on a political agenda that is devastating lives, and provides a platform from which we can work together on solutions.

The mission of The Heritage Foundation is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. The Heritage Foundation supports the rights of parents to raise and educate their children according to their own values and beliefs.

WoLF is a radical feminist organization dedicated to the total liberation of women and girls from exploitation, to women’s sovereignty over the material conditions of our lives, and to the end of male violence against women and children. WoLF is co-branding the Parent Resource Guide to highlight the concerns of many parents on the political left who recognize the negative impact of gender identity ideology, especially regarding the undermining of girls’ athletic opportunities, the loss of physical privacy rights, and threats to child health.

The Kelsey Coalition is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to promote policies and laws that protect young people from medical and psychological harms. Kelsey Coalition chose to co-brand this Guide to alert parents and teachers to:

  • The recent exponential increase in the number of young people who identify as transgender;
  • The underlying social and psychological factors fueling this rise;
  • The need for a compassionate response to children who identify as transgender;
  • The dangers of blindly affirming children who identify as transgender;
  • The need to critically evaluate school curriculum that has lead vulnerable students to believe they have been born into the wrong body;
  • The harmful hormonal and irreversible surgical interventions that are being performed on transgender identifying children without one single long-term study to support their safety or efficacy;
  • The increasing number of young people beginning to publicly express their painful regret of surgeries and hormonal interventions that have irreversibly impacted their health, appearance, fertility, and sexual function.

Parents of ROGD Kids was created in the fall of 2017 to support family members of children who suddenly, seemingly out of the blue, decided they were transgender. We came together to support each other, as we could find no official support from the medical community. Our parents are intelligent, well educated and open minded. They include doctors, lawyers, researchers, therapists and teachers, among others. They are supportive of all sexual orientations. They care deeply for their children and see that they are suffering. They are seeking healthy ways to help their children overcome their issues, but know there is no evidence to support transitioning as the solution. We are trying to protect our children from harm at the hands of a medical profession that has abandoned the tenets of science and evidence-based medicine in favor of untested treatment protocols dictated by political ideology. This guide is an essential resource for any parent trying to navigate the nightmare that ensues when their child suddenly decides they’re transgender. It is very well written and well referenced. It will become a go-to guide for not just parents but anyone who is concerned with putting the welfare of children ahead of ideology and political interests.

Special appreciation is extended to the American College of Pediatricians for generously contributing their expertise to the medical content of the Parent Resource Guide.
