Wow, you all are impressive!
Our meeting Wednesday was PACKED. I couldn’t believe how quickly we met our maximum capacity. What a great problem to have! I appreciate how engaged you all are, it is so energizing!
We could only accommodate 100 people and we had over 400 registered for the meeting. I know that left a lot of you out. I would love to accommodate more people at each meeting.
But that brings additional costs.
We can increase the number of participants however, it is an investment. We can increase the number of participants with room to grow for around $1000 for the year. This is an easy goal to accomplish and I think we can meet it before next month’s meeting.
Will you help us grow? If everyone who registered for the meeting donated $5 we would far exceed the costs.
Please donate today!
Exemptions: Knowledge is Power.
Unfortunately, a lot of people are completely unaware of their rights. This is NOT an acceptable problem. We cannot have people getting the vaccine when they are truly opposed to it.
We need to be helping them with education! You can find some great info-graphics on the website RESOURCES --> Share H4ML. You can send these via text, private messages, or on social media.
More employers are releasing mandates. We will continue to see this spread not only in health care but across all aspects of employment. Please talk with your friends, family, & neighbors about how they can get help through the resources on our dedicated page h4ml.org/covid19mandates INCLUDING information on exemption denials.
Discrimination and segregation are the new mandate. We have seen this happening across the state and truly need your help. We have been getting reports about the use of various tools to identify vaccinated and unvaccinated. Individuals may be assigned a wrist band, sticker on their badge, or a new pin. Vaccination status dictates whom you can congregate with, how you can eat your lunch, and if you have to wear a mask.
Those who are vaccinated are often “rewarded” with additional time off or bonuses while unvaccinated are penalized via unpaid time of for exposure.
We need your help! ⚠️⚠️Please report your discrimination stories so we can share the extent of discrimination with lawmakers. All information obtained will have identifying information removed. If you hear someone else sharing their story please have them report it too!
CALL TO ACTION!
We have identified a problem, now we need to identify the solution...
I am going to start out by saying… I am not sure what will happen, but we can’t wait any longer! Our elected officials MUST provide us with true protective legislation due to the mounting discrimination of unvaccinated and increasing threat from the federal level.
I have thought long and hard about this. I have researched. I have asked loads of questions and I still feel like I don’t know the answer.
Here is what I know:
We are primed and in perfect position to make headway. We GOT policy last year. They thought that this issue would “be over.” The pressure has only mounted. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
We will participate in focused calls to the leaders of each the House and Senate and your respective Senator/House Rep. So 4 calls in all.

We are in the age of censorship. I didn’t imagine we would ever come to this point but unfortunately, we have.
Our Facebook page has lasted a long time without any “Crimes against Facebook.” In the last week we have been dinged several times. We must stay connected! Here are a few of the things we have been working on.
Telegram: Poor conversion rate and difficulty with keeping up. This has been seen by many groups, we will still stay there but not main point of communication.
Email: We will continue to use email however most people don’t open and read emails, very slow to get info across.
Text Messages: Easy access, high response rate, low risk however concerns with Federal threats of limiting misinformation via text messages. Will be careful about language used here to avoid further censorship.
H4ML near me: This is EVER more important. I encourage you to think about monthly park visits, using the clubhouse at your housing addition or apartment complex, meeting at the library, or a local restaurant with a back room. These will help build community and make sure that even if every other method is blocked, we can still network. Think old school 😊 Those Mary Kay ladies knew what they were doing!
Premier membership including members only area of the website! A premier member is anyone who makes an annual cumulative membership donation of $50 or more. That may be someone who makes a one time $50 donation, or when your more frequent donations equate to $50. This area will be evolving to meet your needs as a community.

Are you excited? I know we are several months away but really legislative session will be on us in no time! We are perfectly positioned for success after last year. Growing our ranks is essential.
Some might argue that we didn’t get our legislation and what was passed has not really been helpful. Ultimately, it is not what was passed last year- it was that they were forced to take action when they didn’t want to. I may do an educational video about this whole story and put it up in the member’s section.
We worked the entire session, we did not fail to push through even in the final moments. H4ML worked with legislators on over 7 bills and dozens of amendments!
You guys get the credit, you hung tough. You all made hundreds of calls and made them feel the pressure. They had multiple opportunities to pass protective legislation and they refused each and every single time. Only because of your perseverance did they find a way to fit a “vaccine passport ban” in to legislation. WE ARE PRIMED AND READY TO GO.
The legislature thought that this would be done, they thought you all would be good girls and boys and take the shot like the good doctor told you. They did not figure that the angry crowds would continue to grow… and yet here you all are- packing rallies and online meetings. You are growing, you are getting organized, you are getting more and more powerful by the minute, and the best part- THEY KNOW. Stand your ground, hold steady, and keep sharing this information!
Schools, masks & vaccines- team work!
I get questions nearly every day about how to fight masks in schools. I do my best to help others but this really isn’t my area of expertise. I do have a few tips and tricks and I will share those below. We all know that these issues of vaccine mandates and masks overlap, so we will work on the overlap collaboratively with another group who have become experts regarding mask mandates.
You may find the following Facebook group helpful Be not afraid 365 Indiana They are hosting an event in Fort Wayne this Friday for parental rights and education. I will be in attendance with a booth to discuss vaccine exemptions for students.
If this is something you are passionate about I encourage you to join their group. I will defer to them in most instances. If you aren’t concerned, feel free to skip over this section.
I will say that there is no legal avenue to stop the manipulation, bullying, discrimination and segregation based on vaccination status. This is our priority for the 2022 legislative session. Please sign our petition here.
Your school board holds the power.
FACL: Training for success
If you are geared up and ready to make a difference join the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership as they teach one of many classes around Indiana. You can read a little bit about how I shook off apathy and hit the ground running after my first class by visiting h4ml.org/facl.
My personal goal for 2021 was to have 6-10 classes this year. We have had 7 classes, trained 300 activists, and it is only July. August, September and November will bring additional classes. Be sure you are at one. Check the current Indiana dates!
At our meeting on Wednesday we heard from John Klaassen who is the father of the lead plaintiff in the IU case. He was optimistic at that time. Today a verdict came back and the Judge upheld the mandate. It is my understanding that Jim Bopp is committed to continuing the fight. Mr. Bopp is filing an appeal and the case will continue to move forward. We encourage you to visit IU Families for Choice website or facebook page for full updates and consider donating to these efforts.
Rallies & Events?
The following events have not been organized by Hoosiers for Medical Liberty and we are not in anyway responsible for them. We encourage the free exercise of your 1st amendment right to free speech in a peaceful and constructive manner!
As mentioned above Hoosiers for Medical Liberty will have a booth at the Be Not Afraid 365 Parental Rights event. If you are in attendance stop by and say hi.
You all are amazing! I am beyond grateful for the work each of you are doing.
