Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult

by PEC co-founder Maria Keffler.

Blindsided when a child suddenly announces a transgender identity, a growing cadre of parents have found their families under assault by an insidious predator: the billion-dollar gender industry. Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult provides a roadmap to help families navigate the treacherous terrain of gender ideology, and bring their children back to reality and safety.

Our mission is to raise awareness and support efforts to stop the unethical treatment of children by schools, hospitals, and mental and medical healthcare providers under the duplicitous banner of gender identity affirmation. We believe that no child is born in the wrong body.
