Once again, THANK YOU all for your financial support, kind words, encouragement, and prayers! Without all of you, we would not have been able to achieve 43% of our goal, nor would we have had the ability to keep our strength (mental/emotional/physical)! So what have we done with the donations so far and other happenings:
PACT was able to hire a conservative marketing/outreach firm that specializes in: digital/mobile/print and direct mail advertising. How they are helping PACT:
• PACT is Now Officially Nonprofit Entity: On Friday, May 14th, Parents Against Critical Theory (PACT) became a 501C(4) nonprofit! This took a few weeks but all the paperwork was finalized this past Friday
• During the week of May 17th, PACT is targeting to launch a national and targeted media campaign to raise awareness and additional support for fighting CRT
• If this campaign is successful in the very early stages, we will be launching some very direct, hard-hitting, and informative videos/PSA's across social media
• Currently, PACT utilizes our original website stoplcpscrt.com for posts, news, etc. However, we launched a new website (soft release) parentsagainstcrt.com, and over the next few weeks, our "old" website will merge with our new one. The new website is a much cleaner, more user-friendly interface AND we are going to be building out a platform to
• Provide people across the country with a "framework" or "blueprint" on how they can organize their own community fight like PACT. Including information on how to:
• Create FOIA's (Freedom of Information Act) requests, the many different types of FOIA's they can and should submit
• Where and how to create a website to create awareness and expose those responsible for bringing CRT into their community and schools
• Offer community-focused Zoom meetings to help answer questions, provide guidance, and make the initiative more personable, you know with real people!
Over the course of the past few months, PACT has met many amazing people and have established several important partnerships/alliances:
• 1776 Action: 1776 Action is an issue advocacy organization focused on stopping the anti-American indoctrination happening in our schools. 1776 is supported by Dr. Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich and (2) weeks ago, Governor Kriti Noem was the first candidate to sign their pledge!
• Fight for Schools: Fight for Schools is a non-partisan political action committee focused on electing common-sense candidates that commit to policies that support equal opportunity, tolerance, meritocracy, and achievement. Fight for Schools is currently heading of the recall effort of (6) of the (9) Loudoun County School Board members. We've been able to get more than 3,000 in the first week!
• We're also working with a few other key organizations, but it is too early to confirm our partnership/alliance, however, it is my hope that by the time I send out our next update we'll have these confirmed

Thank you all once again for the support, encouraging words, and prayers!
Once again, THANK YOU all for your financial support, kind words, and prayers! Without all of you, we would not have been able to achieve 20% of our goal! So what have we done with the donations so far:
We are working with a marketing group, that is NOT woke, and I'm currently waiting on a final proposal. We are working to:
- Expanding our social media reach
- Launching multiple email campaigns over the next few months to continue spreading CRT awareness and expand PACT's "brand" recognition
- Creating a tri-fold or multipage literature for distribution
This week, we started to send out a variety of different newsletters and will be expanding beyond what we've done so far:
- Weekly Newsletter with the (10) previous posts
- PACT Woke Wear, to inform people that PACT has a new store with a variety of products for sale
- Video compilation of CRT in LCPS schools, and public outcry at school board meetings
With the approaching launch of our new website, we've decided to make it a CRT content-rich website. The idea is to be able to provide people with a "one-stop" resource to learn more about CRT, provide video, slide, and presentation examples, etc. In preparation, we've subscribed to "Scribd" which has a plethora of resources that will help the heavy readers, light readers, and everything in between. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to learn about this racist pandemic called CRT
PACT has received countless requests to offer assistance in a variety of areas around the country. We have done what we can thus far, however, I know we can do more to help. The challenge we are facing is how to do this effectively, consistently, and with very limited bandwidth. This is all brand new to me, so I'm not exactly sure what the best pathway forward is. Possibly crafting a business plan in search of grants or "seed" funding? If anyone has anyone has any recommendations, please let me know!

Thank you all once again for the support, encouraging words, and prayers!
The people of America are amazing! The Woke Mob and Big Tech honestly believe the American people are either too dumb, complacent or afraid to fight back. Through the support of (137) thoughtful and generous donors to PACT and our fight against CRT, we've not only proven that they are out of touch but have also demonstrated that more people CARE about the destruction of our great country than don't. PACT has had the GiveSendGo fundraiser up for less than a week and we've almost raised 3X the amount than what was raised on GFM when they shut it down! Thank you all for the donations, prayers and kind and supportive comments!

PACT is in the early stages of talking/working with an organization that is releasing a heavy initiative focused on "1776" education. This is still very early, and we hope to provide an update within the next week. There are some very key players involved in this project, fingers crossed we are able to move forward!
We live our life with the Serenity Prayer at the heart of all we do. It's our beacon of hope, reality, and strength! Thank you all for your support, prayers and kind words. Onward and upward!
It's only been about (48) hours since we created our GiveSendGo fundraiser and so far, we've exceeded what was generated on GoFundMe when it was shut down! They say things happen for a reason! I am scheduling a few meetings with attorney's, actively working on our PR awareness and working with local HS students (PACT RATS) to bring their stories and experiences with CRT out. There are many people speaking out against CRT but some of the most important voices not being heard, and are the ones CRT is directly impacting. PACT had a good day from a media perspective as well. We are not backing down, in fact we've been doubling down! When you have facts, truth, and God on your side there's no reason not to stand up against those that seek to condemn us. Below are a few links to recent news articles. Again, thank you so much for all of the support, prayers and kind words!
