Protect Kids California Initiative Gathers Over 400,000 Signatures. Falls Short of Amount Required for Ballot.

May 28, 2024, Roseville, CA – Protect Kids California announced on Tuesday they collected an impressive 400,000 signatures for their proposed ballot measure, but fell short of the 546,651 required to be collected within a 180 day timeframe to appear on the ballot.

Tens of thousands of volunteers gathered signatures from every county in California. The largest collection areas were Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Clara and Alameda Counties.

A completely grassroots effort, Protect Kids California raised close to $200,000 from over 1,200 donors. This equates to less than 50 cents per signature, a fraction of the amount standard ballot measure committees spend.

“While we are disappointed we didn’t meet the threshold to qualify for the ballot, we are encouraged by the amount of support from every sector of the state. We gathered more signatures for a statewide initiative than any all-volunteer effort in the history of California.”

“We had severe headwinds from the beginning. California Attorney General Rob Bonta issued a false and misleading Title & Summary for our initiative. That made our fundraising efforts more difficult. While we sued the Attorney General, a Superior Court Judge denied our motion in April. We plan to appeal the Superior Court Judge’s decision, at which time we will decide how to proceed in the future. If we had a little more time or a little more money, we would have easily qualified for the ballot.”

Had the measure qualified for the ballot, its proponents are confident it would pass. Numerous polls have found that each tenant of the measure is supported by California voters.

“Our message is simple. Schools shouldn’t keep secrets from parents; we should protect girls’ sports and private spaces at school; and we should protect kids from unproven, life-altering and often sterilizing medical procedures. We vow to continue fighting for these principles.”

ABOUT US

We Are Parents On A Mission To Protect Children

We are advocating for policies that promote all children’s rights and well-being.

Our Causes

The Initiative

Our organization strongly advocates for policies that prioritize and promote the well-being of all children. Our initiative is geared towards protecting children and ensuring that parents are a fundamental part of their child’s growth and able to protect their safety.

Stop schools from keeping secrets from parents

Involvement of parents in decisions about their children’s lives is critical. Not only should schools not be allowed to keep secrets from parents about their kids, but schools should get parental consent before they begin socially transitioning kids at school.

Protect girls’ sports and spaces

It’s simply not fair to let biological boys compete against our daughters in sports. We must ensure girls competitive athletics means biological girls only. We must also protect our children’s privacy and safety when using school facilities. Sex-segregated locker rooms and restrooms should be based on biological sex.

Protect Kids from sterilization and mutilation

Minors cannot consent to sterilization or removing healthy body parts. To protect the future reproductive and sexual health of children into adulthood, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, mastectomies, and transitional genital surgeries for minors should not be allowed.
