But we don't know which schools host them. The GNC program host, the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), doesn't share that information with the public. Only parents and staff directly connected to a school would know that their school is hosting a GNC. And even they aren't likely to know unless they're paying attention, because the program is normally introduced very benignly as a "non-denominational after-school Bible Study class".
But once they are in, they aggressively promote their conservative and intolerant ideological agenda as part of the normal school program and train the schoolchildren to proselytize to their family and friends.
This list is an attempt to identify those schools in the Los Angeles metro area that are hosting Good News Clubs in order to alert parents and assist them in networking with others who are concerned about this use of our public schools for what is, in essence, sanctioned religious bullying. If you know of a school that is hosting a Good News Club, please let us know and we will post it to this list. If you are connected to one of these schools and want to reach others who share your concerns or receive other information from AU, send us an email and we will put you in touch with those who brought the group to our attention.
