European Parliament Members call on you: Join Protest for Freedom and Democracy in Brussels on January 23

Keep Showing Up Strong to Defeat the Mandates!

“Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming” on January 23 in Washington, D.C. aims to unite all citizens in reclaiming individual liberties and democratic principles

Join Children’s Health Defense (CHD) this Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Eastern at the Washington Monument and march to the Lincoln memorial. Stand united to protest all government mandates. United we stand and in peace we march.

Participants from all walks of life will be attending, regardless of political affiliation, race, ideology or vaccination status. We will gather to peacefully protest and march together in unity to restore democracy, reclaim our civil liberties and say NO to mandates.

Speaker highlights include Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Del Bigtree, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Paul Marik, Dr. Ryan Cole, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, Steve Kirsch, Dr. Christina Parks, Dr. Paul Alexander, Dr. Richard Urso, Attorney Tricia Lindsay, Kevin Jenkins, Rev. Aaron Lewis, Rabbi Epstein, Tramell Johnson, Jo Rose (Jo Speaks Truth), Lara Logan, Angela Stanton King, Chris Martenson, Kwame Brown, Trahern Crews and many more!

Comedian JP Sears will emcee the event.

Musical performances will also be a part of the event, featuring Jimmy Levy and Hi-Rez the rapper, Five Times August, and Matt Brevner.

Tens of thousands have already registered to be here on this historic day. Learn more and make your plans to stand together to Defeat the Mandates. Spread the word, share on social and encourage those in your community to make their plans to be in Washington DC. Buses are now available for same-day, roundtrip transportation to DC from multiple states. Check back often as more buses will be added.

The goal of the march is to peacefully protest vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, COVID vaccines for children, and censorship. Participants will be marching in support of informed consent, natural immunity, and the doctor/patient relationship which should exist independent of government interference.

In addition to objecting to COVID vaccine mandates on democratic principle, many are also expressing concern about the safety of these shots citing that as yet another reason to protest mandates. The latest data from the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) reveals 1,033,994 adverse events following COVID vaccination including 21,745 deaths.

“The rise of tyranny can only be stopped if Americans rise up against it while they still have enough freedom left to do so,” said CHD president and general counsel Mary Holland. “We encourage all who can be in Washington on January 23rd to stand in peace and unity with us. Once governments take away the rights of individuals, they are nearly impossible to regain.”

Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming. CHD will livestream the event on CHD.TV.

Listen to the message from our Chairman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. above on why it’s critical to join us in Washington, D.C.

Keep Showing Up Strong in 2022!

Help others engage in the movement. Share information with compassion, empathy, and an open heart to bring others to the right side of history.

We at Children’s Health Defense are calling on advocates everywhere including our state and international chapters, coalition partners, affiliates and all of humanity to peacefully assemble and actively engage with your state elected representatives to stand against mandates.

Our elected officials need constant reminders that they work for the tax paying citizens of this country and that many of us, if not the majority, want choice when it comes to what goes on and in our bodies.

These representatives must see our faces, hear our voices and know that we demand choice when it comes to our healthcare decisions. Parents and individuals should make these decisions, not the government. The tyranny ends when We the People stand up!

Here’s how you can keep Showing up Strong in 2022:

  1. Find the date for the start of your state’s 2022 legislative session. If your state hasn’t commenced the new session yet, be prepared to be at your statehouse on day one and bring your friends.
  2. Organize and invite local groups and community members to show up at your statehouse and to meet with your elected representatives. Collaborate with as many groups as possible within your community who are concerned with health freedom. We have strength in numbers!
  3. Create promotional graphics for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with our free design templates to promote your event and get the word out!
  4. If you are planning a rally, be sure to share the information with CHD to be featured on this Worldwide Walkouts page and our Community Calendar.
  5. Visit our Advocacy Hub to download, print and share educational handouts and postcards with your community and elected officials. Here is some helpful guidance for interacting successfully with legislators.
  6. Engage in polite dialogue with your local board of education members, school administrators, county executives, department of health officials, mayors and other local elected officials on this critical cause. Request meetings and attend in small groups, be prepared to share information and educational materials and advocate for health choice in your community. Review your school district’s approved Health & Safety plan. These are public reports that you can check to see whether the American Rescue Plan Act and COVID grants your school may be receiving are driving mandates in your district.
  7. Download, print and share our new stickers and join the “Stick to the Truth” campaign. Post them in high traffic, high-exposure public areas such as community bulletin boards and utility poles to share important truth-based messages to counter the propaganda.

Never has there been a more important time to fight back and protect our rights to stop this tyranny and government overreach.

Be a defender of truth, freedom and health. Let’s keep SHOWING UP STRONG in 2022!

Find Your State’s Legislative Session Start Date

We know many states are battling mandates for masks and the COVID vaccine. And the legislative session will be upon us in just a few weeks where states like New York, California, Louisiana, Washington, DC and others will attempt to pass bills making the COVID vaccine mandatory for school-aged children. New York and California are crucial states so we ask that if you are in or around those areas that you show up to support in addition to the rallies in your home state.

States shown in red are key battleground states!

Join Us for Upcoming Worldwide Walkouts!

Worldwide Walkouts are demanding a return to freedom and democratic principles. Citizens around the globe are protesting illegal mandates and tyrannical government overreach. Every man, woman and child is important to this movement.

This grassroots initiative is ongoing as we organize and connect activists around the globe to execute coordinated acts of peaceful non-compliance and civil disobedience. Check back often for dates and events near you.

“No government in history has ever surrendered power in the absence of a demand. We need to tell these governments and their friends in the technocracy, the Silicon Valley billionaire boys club, the mainstream media, and the pharmaceutical industry that we will no longer tolerate their trampling of citizens’ rights.”
– Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD Board Chair and Lead Counsel
