About

Make Americans Free Again is the brainchild of Dr. Pam Popper in Worthington OH. She is heading the national effort while each state is forming its own chapter. MAFA KY is the Kentucky chapter!

MAFA is forming a HUGE group of Americans with a very simple, and easily understandable campaign platform:

“I want the freedom to accept or reject any and all medical treatments, including vaccinations, for myself and my minor children. The state and federal government, employers, merchants, groups, schools, institutions, and other entities should not be able to force me or my minor children to receive any medical intervention, including vaccinations, without my express permission. I furthermore demand that full disclosure of the risks and benefits of any medical intervention, including screening tests, drugs, devices, surgeries, and vaccines be required by law to be provided to any consumer prior to the delivery of services.”

Sheri Quinn, Homeschool Initiative Coordinator | homeschool@mafaky.org

Sheri Quinn has been fighting medical tyranny since before her first child was born. With her tyranny antenna already raised, she chose to homeschool her children, both of whom are now attending university.

Sheri spent her children’s very early years studying how children learn and the history of modern education and came to some surprising and joyful conclusions that school is not the best way.

She has been active in keeping homeschooling legal and free in Kentucky for almost two decades now and is now helping to mentor and encourage parents who are starting the homeschool journey.
