Her fluency in Mandarin assisted her when she worked with the largest Chinese adoption agency in the world.

Katy is the Washington State leader for the grassroots marriage movement CanaVox, and currently appears in their video series, "Dear Katy."

Erin Brewer developed a trans identity in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. Her teacher sent her to the school psychologist for assessment because her behavior was concerning. Thankfully the school psychologist did not affirm her, instead she came up with a plan for her mother and teacher to help Erin manage her difficult feelings. It took years for Erin’s trans identity to resolve but she is thankful that she got the help she needed to address the underlying cause of her trans identity rather than being told she was born in the wrong body and inherently flawed.

Erin grew up in Salt Lake City and earned a B.S. from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She has a Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

Erin shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement.

Maria Polaris (not her real name) and her husband’s lives were turned upside down when their daughter ran away from home after her first year of college in 2015. Someone they didn’t know picked up their daughter and helped her attempt to change sex.

"Since then," Maria says, "our family has had to find ways to cope, because once a child is 18, they can do whatever they want in the U.S. including, full medical transition without psychological assessments. This has led to regret and grave errors in the medical community. Ohio has six major gender clinics with the largest one boasting over 1600 patients (funded by a family in the process of transitioning their own child since age 3)."

Maria is now part of a support group for parents of Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria. They are also active advocates for more humane, evidence-based public policy in the area of gender identity.

No one is "born in the wrong body."
