BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Parental rights group Moms for Liberty announced their nationwide launch as the fast-growing organization has formed five chapters since its founding in January, and is currently fielding chapter requests in over 15 states.
Founded by former school board members Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich, the group unifies parents, grandparents, educators and community members to exercise their voices in standing up for parental rights and defending liberty in local government.
“We’re growing so quickly, and to be honest, I am not surprised,” said Justice.
“Moms will do anything for their children. We will be the ones who carry the torch of liberty forward. Our children are counting on us and we will not let them down.”
Justice and Descovich said they have witnessed firsthand the gaping disconnect that exists between families and ‘the system.’
“Parents often feel they are up against a machine and are left feeling unheard and frustrated,” said Justice.
Justice and Descovich are leading the effort to close that gap and effect lasting change.
“The balance of power in education has dramatically shifted away from parents and communities to unions and bureaucrats,” said Descovich.
“Moms for Liberty is fighting to restore the role of primary decision maker for children back to parents by helping them organize and amplify their voices.”
The founders said Moms for Liberty will hold leaders accountable, spread an understanding of the limited role of government, teach the principles of liberty, stand against government intimidation tactics, engage elected officials on key issues impacting families and work to promote liberty-minded individuals to serve in elected positions.
