Statement on SPLC labeling Moms For Liberty a hate group

“The SPLC's labeling Moms for Liberty as a hate group is a gross mischaracterization and a blatant attempt to silence and demonize parents who seek to be actively involved in their children's education. The concerns raised by parents about explicit content, sexualized material, and curriculum choices are legitimate, and dismissing these concerns as hateful and extremist without engaging in meaningful conversation disrespects parents and fails to address the real issues at hand. This unprecedented and defamatory action by the SPLC is an affront to the rights of parents and an attack on their legitimate concerns. The Florida GOP stands shoulder to shoulder with parents in defense of their constitutional right to determine what is best for their families.  The sexualization and politicization of children is evil, and we will stop at nothing to defeat it.” – FloridaGOP Chairman Christian Ziegler.
