On March 11, 2021, the State Board of Education unveiled the new 60-page proposed K-12 “health” curriculum. It was comprehensive – and alarming.
The outrage by parents across the state was swift. One week later, NFFV released a five-page list of the obvious “red flags” in that document.
NFFV began spreading the word and meeting with parents across the state. At one NFFV workshop, parents met with Mark Bonkiewicz, the NFFV leader, to ask what they could do. Mark worked closely with them to form Protect Nebraska Children Coalition (PNCC), a group specifically focused on organizing parents on this issue.
Protect Nebraska Children Coalition gathered over 20,000 Facebook members in four short months. Together with NFFV, they became a major force in the battle!
