The Uvalde Foundation For Kids, established in the aftermath of the Robb Elementary School Shooting in Uvalde, Texas, has declared its intentions to organize protests on January 3rd and January 10th, 2023, at 9 am CST at Chimneyrock Elementary School in Cordova, Tennessee.

The Uvalde Foundation For Kids, a nationally registered 501c(3) non-profit charity organization is dedicated to a range of initiatives, including nonviolence education programs, bullying prevention and safety training, school crisis response, and advocacy on behalf of students, their families, and school communities. Through their tireless efforts, the foundation aims to put an end to school violence and provide students with the education and futures they deserve.

The protests are in response to a recently approved school district club at Chimneyrock Elementary School’s library, scheduled for January 10th, 2023, and hosted by the Satanic Temple. Demonstrators from as far as Texas and California are expected to participate in the protest.

Foundation officials expressed their concerns in a Sunday morning release, stating, “Not only is the presence of this club and its influence on students not welcome in Memphis schools due to its values and teachings, but additionally, we are concerned that the presence of this club threatens to create ongoing conflict between community members, including other groups. We fear this could spill over and disrupt students, potentially placing them in harm.”

The Foundation has reached out to the Satanic Temple, requesting that they cease their planned activities at the school and find an alternative venue for their clubs.

To address potential safety concerns for students if the club remains at the Cordova campus, Foundation officials announced that they will continue plans to recruit and expand their STOPNOW Volunteer School Patrol Teams for the ChimneyRock Elementary School community, beginning the week of January 10th, 2023. Similar foundation patrols are already in operation throughout the state, including for the Covenant School community in Nashville, TN.

The After School Satan Club opposes the introduction of religion into public schools and will establish a club only if other religious groups are already operating on campus. The club mission claims, “Proselytization is not our goal, and we’re not interested in converting children to Satanism. After School Satan Clubs will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us. We prefer to give children an appreciation of the natural wonders surrounding them, not a fear of everlasting other-worldly horrors.”

However, parents should question the motive behind an after-school club with a Satan-based theme. The club’s decision to exclusively open in schools already hosting religious clubs raises concerns among Christian communities. They wonder why such a club would deliberately position itself where other religious beliefs are already present, potentially sparking tension and conflicts among students. This strategic choice seems to go beyond a mere pursuit of free inquiry and rationalism, raising questions about the underlying intentions of the After School Satan Club.
