WHAT IS THE PROTECT CHILDREN PROJECT?
If you are a student whose religious beliefs stand in opposition to being hit or abused by school faculty, the Protect Children Project will put your school on notice.
HOW DOES THE PROTECT CHILDREN PROJECT WORK?
We assert that the following actions taken by school officials against students who are members of The Satanic Temple, or any other student who share TST’s religious beliefs, are violations of our civil rights:
●Use of physical restraints
●Solitary confinement and the use of “scream” rooms
●Restricting bathroom access
If schools do not respect the religious beliefs of a student who has registered, we will work to try to obtain legal counsel to sue the school district for violating that student’s civil rights.
WHO CAN REGISTER?
Any student who is a member of The Satanic Temple or whose religion opposes physical and psychological abuse may register. If you are a concerned parent, you can bring this site to the attention of your child, but only they can affirm their religious faith.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Get informed about the harm done by corporal punishment, solitary confinement, physical restraints, and deprivation of bathroom access, and share that information with others.
Write op-eds in your local paper so others know this is taking place.
