Sunday, November 15, Reverend Rafael Cruz Reclaiming America

Rafael Cruz is a powerful example of the American Dream.

Born in Cuba, Cruz lived and suffered under a cruel, oppressive dictator. He began fighting Batista’s regime as a teenager and was imprisoned and tortured simply because he wanted to be free.

Cruz arrived in Texas in 1957 on a student visa. He got a job as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour, and worked his way through the University of Texas, while learning English. He later built a small business in further pursuit of the American Dream.

In early 1980, Cruz joined the State Board of the Religious Roundtable, a Judeo-Christian organization that mobilized millions of people of faith during the Presidential Campaign of Ronald Reagan.

He is an ordained minister and the Director of Grace for America, sharing the Word of God in churches and Pastors Conferences throughout the United States.

His son, Ted Cruz, is a constitutional conservative U.S. Senator from Texas and candidate for United States President in 2016.

When Ted was a child growing up in Houston, Rafael would tell him, “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go

March Madness at VCA – Transgender Students in Virginia Schools

March Madness at VCA – Transgender Students in Virginia Schools

We all like to think that once the General Assembly session is over, we can take a breath. Well, March came in like a lion and went out like a lion. At VCA, we spent the month doing mailings about issues and prepared for two events.

Letters were mailed to every Public School Superintendent and School Board Chair in the Commonwealth addressing the new phenomenon of cross-dressing transgendered students attending our public schools. We asked each school district:

  • Does your district have a policy to deal with transgender students, teachers, and staff
  • Does your district have any current issues regarding transgender students, teachers, or staff
  • If so, what is the specific policy you are using to address the issue
  • Where can the public access or find that policy

This issue of transgendered public school students has barely surfaced in Virginia. We know some schools already have issues, but only two systems – Stafford County and Gloucester County, have become public. It seems other systems are keeping their situations private.
