Rebecca Friedrichs is part of a movement to restore the voices and authority of parents and teachers in America's schools.

As a twenty-eight-year public school teacher, she was forced to fund unions whose politics and divisive tactics degraded her profession, our schools, and our national character.

Her lawsuit, Friedrichs v California Teachers' Association, brought with ten other teachers, was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in January 2016, and blazed the trail for ending forced unionism for all teachers and government employees in the United States.

Her book, Standing Up to Goliath, is Rebecca’s expose of corrupt and abusive unions. And she’s a producer of the documentary Whose Children Are They?.

Rebecca and her husband Charles, founded For Kids and Country through which they educate and empower Americans to abandon unions so we can restore our republic.

Rebecca’s editorials can be found in outlets nationwide. She appears regularly on radio and television. She’s a Prager University host, and she was the second speaker on the opening night of the 2020 Republican National Convention.

Most importantly, Rebecca is a lover of Jesus Christ, the wife of Charles and mother of two grown sons Kyle and Benjamin.
