Erin was a trans kid. Thankfully, she had therapists who helped her first manage and then resolve her gender confusion. Erin started speaking about her history after Equality Utah proposed legislation that would ban the very type of therapy that helped her overcome her transgender identity. 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.
Maria is a former middle- and high-school teacher and one of the co-founders of the Arlington Parent Coalition (APC) in Arlington, VA. She and the APC team work to hold the public school system accountable to ALL parents, as well as to support parents toward keeping their children safe in public school. Maria has three children and holds a master of science degree in educational psychology. She writes and speaks on the topics of education, school policy on sex & gender, and parents' rights in education.
Miriam is a long-time activist on behalf of the LGB community, a teacher of 37 years at both the high school and college levels, and a Vietnam Era veteran. She is the co-founder of Hands Across The Aisle Women in Coalition, a coalition of conservative and progressive women who work to fight trans ideology and its impact on society as well as the founder of several other organizations. She holds a BA cum laude in Hebrew Studies and English and a Master’s Degree in English from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. A forthright and blunt woman, she is a published author and well known nationally and internationally for challenging the U.S. Army’s former ban on Gays in the military and for her work on challenging transgenderism and the erasure of women.
Becky’s passion has led her to work with and serve in leadership roles with other conservative organizations. She has served as the Alabama State coordinator for Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG) and also the National Grassroots Coordinator for Grassroots for Victory USA. In that role she helped to unite conservative grassroots groups across the country via their “Let’s Put ‘US’ Back in USA” national tour. She has been an active member of the Stop Common Core Task Force in Alabama and was a state leader for ParentalRights.org. In 2012 she traveled the country as a media correspondent with B!G Voices Media. In 2016, her desire to serve the citizens of Alabama prompted her to run for U.S. Congress in Alabama’s Second District.
Becky’s desire for freedom is fueled by her faith in God and love for her family. She has been married to her best friend, Eric for almost 27-years; their daughter Shelley and son-n-law, Omar, have given them two wonderful grandchildren, Samuel Joseph and Irving Lucas. Becky is working to ensure her children and grandchildren will live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Lynn works as an advocate for parents of Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) kids and as a spokesperson for the Kelsey Coalition. She feels honored to work with many gifted and talented women through the Hands Across the Aisle coalition. Her story was told by the Christian Post titled, “I’ve lost two kids to the trans cult, I want them back: An anguished mom shares her journey,” by Brandon Showalter.
Lynn has recently become involved in activism against Drag Queen Story Hours at public libraries and helped to start Ask Moms on Facebook to inform and equip ordinary people everywhere to stand against the sexualization of children. She worked as a nurse in Neonatal Intensive Care for 28 years. She enjoys reading, writing, painting, knitting, and time with friends and her two cats, Kallie and Lulu.

The Compassion Coalition calls for Moratorium on “Sex-Change” Operations, and Clarification on Therapy Bans
Erin Brewer, Miriam Ben-Shalom, Becky Gerritson, Lynn Meagher and Maria Keffler, founders of The Compassion Coalition, today called on the nation’s governors to halt what’s called “gender reassignment surgery” during the Coronavirus crisis.
The Compassion Coalition says the government has called for a moratorium on non-essential procedures to conserve medical resources. Sex-change operations clearly fall within this category. No one will be harmed by a delay here and it will give those contemplating such surgeries more time to contemplate what could be a life-altering event that they’ll later come to regret.
Trans activists have warned that some of the gender-confused will commit suicide if their operation is delayed. In a well researched study called this argument a red herring. “One study shows that those who’ve undergone a ‘sex-change’ operation are nearly 20 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population.” (See below for link.)
A moratorium would help us to come to terms with the nature of gender- reassignment surgery. After the operation, patients have the same sex that they did before. These procedures change physical appearance, not DNA. Those who were born male or female will remain so till the end of their days, regardless of what they do to their bodies.
The answer to gender confusion is compassionate counseling (talk therapy), not facilitating a fraud. We are calling on governors to lift bans on such therapy, where they exist. These bans on so-called “conversion therapy” are often so broad that therapists fear just talking to gender-confused clients about their
The Compassion Coalition is a national group for those fighting to ban invasive, harmful, unproven medical interventions for gender confused children. Please remember this is a non-partisan group. Our goal is to support efforts around the nation and around the world to stop the medical abuse of children who identify as transgender.
