The Coalition gathered 350,000 signatures in just 70 days at the end of last year for a referendum on SB 777. That effort fell short, and SB 777 is now law in California. However, with twice as much time, the ability to distribute the petition over the internet, and the continued dedication of the volunteers who fueled the remarkable referendum drive, the Coalition is confident that the initiative effort will succeed.
Karen England, Executive Director of CRI, commented, "It is crucial that we join together and turn back this assault on our families and values. With the continued support of the people of California, we are expecting the Save Our Kids petition drive to be a resounding success."
Pacific Justice Institute has been providing legal counsel for the referendum and initiative campaigns. PJI President Brad Dacus stated, "Together, we can send a powerful message to our elected officials that we will not stand idly by while they mandate alternative lifestyle propaganda in our schools. Hundreds of thousands of Californians have already demonstrated their disgust with SB 777 and worked hard on the referendum drive. By signing the new petition and gathering signatures, parents can take back their state."
To download and sign a petition, please visit www.SaveOurKids.net . The petition includes instructions for returning it for official counting.
