Human/civil rights advocacy, vaccination choice parental consent<...
We are a non-partisan, diverse group of concerned individuals and organizations dedicated to the preservation and defense of our personal rights. We focus on individual vaccination choice, parental consent to vaccination for children, and freedom to make healthcare decisions for ourselves and our families. Established civil rights organizations have not adequately addressed these critical issues in an era of ever increasing vaccination mandates and frequently-declared public health emergencies. While we recognize many other personal rights issues, including reproductive rights and marriage rights, we do not take positions on them at this time. There are many established civil rights organizations addressing these questions across wide spectrums of opinion. We seek to promote individual and parental autonomy for vaccination and healthcare decisions and thus to fill a void that we see in existing human rights advocacy.
