Los Angeles Unified School District recently announced that all K-12 students in their schools will be taught about LGBTQ+ issues during an assembly. The assembly will feature videos and book readings about children who have “all kinds of families” such as two mothers or two fathers.
Parents of the students who attend Saticoy Elementary have created the Instagram account @SaticoyElementaryParents, an account calling for a boycott of the Pride assembly. The group is advocating for parents to not take their children to school on June 2, the day of the assembly. The account is also organizing a parent protest outside Saticoy Elementary on the same day.
The group is calling the Pride Day assembly “an inappropriate topic for our kids” and is advocating for parents to protect their children’s innocence. In response to this planned protest, Los Angeles Unified School District released the following statement:
“Los Angeles Unified is committed to creating a safe and inclusive learning environment that embraces the diversity of the communities we serve. The District encourages everyone in our school communities to treat each other with respect, kindness and compassion so that our students can be empowered to achieve their greatest potential.
"As part of our engagement with school communities, our schools regularly discuss the diversity of the families that we serve and the importance of inclusion. This remains an active discussion with our school communities and we remain committed to continuing to engage with families about this important topic. Families are always encouraged to discuss important topics with their children and families may also contact their schools for more information about any school programs or activities.”

Leading up to the month of June, a month dubbed “Pride month” by LGBTQ+ activists, Americans that embrace traditional values have organized multiple boycotts against corporations that push radical, gender ideology.
These boycotts have been a massive success.
Companies such as Bud Light, Target, and Disney, have all seen their stocks drop over ten percent in the last month alone. Target, the most recent victim of conservative boycotting, has lost $9 billion in market value since its boycott began. Corporations are realizing that Americans are fed up with an ideology being forced upon them that directly contradicts their moral and religious values.
It’s good to see that even a group like Saticoy Elementary, a school in one of the most liberal cities in America, is facing backlash for pushing radical gender ideology on children.
