Contribute To Protect Children Project
The Protect Children Project utilizes the First Amendment to protect public school students from being subjected to corporal punishment, solitary confinement, physical restraints, and the deprivation of bathroom access as these abusive practices violate our religious belief of bodily inviolability. When a student registers, we notify their school board that harming this student would violate their civil rights.
Corporal punishment is legal in 19 states and over 110,000 children are legally hit in school each year with many requiring emergency room visits.
Tens of thousands of children in public schools in all 50 states are placed in solitary confinement as punishment. This practice in on the rise in schools even though seclusion is being phased out of prisons.
Despite being a basic violation of human rights, deprivation of bathroom access is so commonplace in school that no government agency even bothers to track this.
If you are a student in an American public school, and a member of The Satanic Temple, please register. We will write your school board and notify them that because The Satanic Temple religiously believes in bodily autonomy, this kind of abuse is a violation of your civil rights.
*Please note that The Satanic Temple believes that religious organizations should not be tax exempt and for that reason contributions are not tax deductible
