If parents across America truly want to take their rights back from rogue school administrators and progressive political operatives, parents must get involved. This is why we created the 1776 Action Senior Fellows program.

1776 Action Senior Fellows play a critical role in advancing our nation’s education and parental rights.

By being accepted as a Senior Fellow you will participate in various communication initiatives on behalf of 1776 Action.

Some initiatives include media interviews, recording videos, contributing opinions and insights to 1776 Action staff and more.

If we want to take our schools and children back, we must get vocal. As a Senior Fellow we will guide you, teach you, educate you and give you opportunities to grow as a voice of reason for all parents and children across the country.

We will be announcing our first wave of Senior Fellows in the coming weeks and months.

If you are interested in becoming a 1776 Action Senior Fellow, please email [email protected].

Xi Van Fleet, a parent in Loudon County, VA helped lead opposition to critical race theory in Loudon County, VA schools and is an outspoken critic of Marxism in today’s education school.

Xi has appeared on Fox News, other outlets and has gone viral on the internet for speaking up against what she is seeing in American schools today and comparing it what she saw growing up in China during Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

“To me, and to a lot of Chinese, it is heartbreaking that we escaped communism and now we experience communism here.” Xi told Fox News.

Xi came to the United States at the age 26, fleeing the oppressive Communist Party of China.

Xi, a Freedom Education Ambassador at Independent Women’s Forum told them, “Mao launched the Cultural Revolution, which was officially the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, in 1966,” Xi recalls. “It lasted ten years until his death in 1976. I was a first grader when the Culture Revolution started. I lived through the whole revolution. By the time it was over, I had finished high school, and I was sent to the countryside to work in the fields for three years.

Xi compares CRT to Mao’s Communist Cultural Revolution, “Basically, Mao divided China into two major camps: red camp, black camp. Red means you’re okay, You’re the friend with the revolution. Black means that you are the enemy. Not only that, your label is hereditary. Just like CRT. You’re born, if you are born to parents who were labeled as class enemy, you were class enemy at birth. Everyone knew his or her own place. If you did anything that was considered offensive to the ruling class, you became what’s called a counter revolutionary, and you ended up in the black camp. You could start in the red camp and end up in the black camp, but you can never start in the black camp and end up in the red camp. Does it make sense?” Unfortunately, it does make sense to those who have read about or otherwise been exposed to CRT.
