Dear Friends,

A 13-year-old girl from Louisiana is traveling across America to offer hugs to law enforcement officers in every state to demonstrate her appreciation, respect and support!

Rosalyn Baldwin came up with the idea when she was just 6 years old, moved by the shooting deaths of 5 police officers in Dallas and 3 Baton Rouge Police officers shot to death in an ambush. Rosalyn has since started the nonprofit to foster empathy and understanding for those who serve our communities on the police force.

You Geaux Girl!

The Livingston Parish School Board has filed a lawsuit against social media platforms TikTok and Instagram, alleging that the apps are so addictive that they are responsible for a mental health crisis among the students in the district! The board is also taking legal action against two internet service providers, claiming that they are complicit in enabling minors to access the social media platforms.

The lawsuit was initially filed in mid-July within the 21st Judicial District Court located in Livingston, and it was recently moved to federal court. The law firm Fayard & Honeycutt is representing the Livingston School Board.

“This action is brought to protect children and families in the State of Louisiana from Defendants' intentional manipulation of children via sophisticated design elements deployed on Instagram and TikTok," the lawsuit reads. "Defendants do this to keep Louisiana children addicted to their social media platforms."

The school board is asking the court to prohibit “engaging in the conduct” that is adversely impacting students. Additionally, they are seeking financial compensation to support preventive education efforts addressing excessive social media usage, among other forms of redress.

A recent Gallup poll reveals the American public's significant dissatisfaction with the quality of K-12 education in the US. The survey reveals that 63% of respondents are not content with K-12 education, with only 36% expressing satisfaction. This marks a 5-point drop from the 30% satisfaction rate recorded a year ago. Among those satisfied, a mere 8% indicated they were "completely satisfied."

Gallup claims that this 36% satisfaction rate is the lowest recorded since they began in 2000. 

The 25% satisfaction level among Republicans is a historic low for the party. As recently as 2020, their satisfaction was much higher at 49%. However, the decline is likely due to factors such as COVID-19-related school closures and critical race theory and gender ideology infiltrating classrooms. 

Public schools need to end the politics and restore traditional education!


Friends, as so-called progressive ideology infiltrates education and every facet of American culture, it's critical that Christians become more engaged in their communities. We must remain informed and connected with like-minded decision makers. 

There’s no better way to get involved than to attend LFF’s Silver Anniversary Gala on September 28th! This is the premier opportunity to celebrate the state Representatives and Senators who served honorably on behalf of life, liberty, and limited government. Sponsorship information can be found here.

In His Service,
