In last week’s edition of Conversations that Count, the Fairfax GOP’s Srilekha Palle interviewed two local moms — Elizabeth McCauley and Tyler Ohta — who are organizing to defend their kids’ safety and secure their future.
McCauley and Ohta lead the Virginia Mavens, a network of concerned mothers who share commonsense, conservative values that was founded in July 2020. “I thought, I’ve got to find some other moms — there has got to be others who feel the same way I do,” Ohta recalls.
Fairfax County’s woke, leftist school board is mulling revisions to the district’s student handbook that would codify elements of highly controversial, divisive gender ideology. In addition, the board is considering the merit of co-ed sex education classes.
Concerned moms and dads rallied in opposition to the draft revisions ahead of the May 26 county school board meeting. The well-attended, spirited rally drew the attention of local and national media, including Fox News.
