May 16 – An Evening with Parental Rights Expert and Attorney Will Estrada

Tickets available here!

The past couple years have been a wake-up call to parents regarding about what’s going on in America’s classrooms. But what exactly are parents’ rights as it relates to education? What additional rights would the Parent Bill of Rights, recently passed by the US House of Representatives, provide? What could be some of the consequences if these rights are not explicitly legislated at a federal level?

Please join us Tuesday, May 16, at 6:30 – 8 :30 p.m. at a Wilmette home (address provided after registration) for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and remarks from Will Estrada, attorney and President of and the Parental Rights Foundation, two nationwide nonprofits headquartered in Loudoun County, Virginia that have advocated at the local, state, and federal levels to protect children by empowering parents.

Tickets available here.
