The NEA Representative Assembly met in Washington, DC, July 2- 7, 2016. This year we were able to have our caucus exhibit booth all six days, rather than our usual two days.
Caucus booth special guests included the following experts (See previous posts or links to see some of their important studies and information):
D. Paul Sullins, Ph.D. Department of Sociology, The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.
Just released study, “Invisible Victims: Delayed Onset Depression among Adults with Same-Sex Parents” https://www.hindawi.com/journals/drt/2016/2410392/
Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D. Internationally renowned expert on Dr. Alfred Kinsey, from the Kinsey Institute- Indiana University and his fraudulent sex studies and publications which have affected our nation’s laws and sex education programs. Dr. Reisman has testified before the US Congress, high-level commissions, and the US Supreme Court. Please read her book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence. She explains how the work of Dr. Alfred Kinsey during the 1940s and 1950s contributed to our current sexual practices and beliefs. It was later found that his “sex experiments” were fradulent. Dr. Reisman also uncovered the shocking fact some of the “sex experiments” were even performed on children as young as two months old. This book helps us understand some of our beliefs today on the topic of sexual orientation and sexual beliefs and practices and how they have caused harm.
Dr. Bill Shaw, American College of Pediatricians– visit their website for helpful information related to child health issues.
Peter Sprigg- VP for Policy at the Family Research Council, Washington, DC.

Dave- an ex-gay shared his story on coming out of homosexuality.
Many interested people stopped by our booth to discuss and gather information. Since transgender is such a topic of consideration, we gave out 100 books, Paper Genders and Gender, Lies and Suicide, written by Walt Heyer, a man who transitioned to being a woman and deeply regretted it. I would encourage you to read his books. They really helped open up my understanding on this very sensitive topic.
