- Western Convervatory
The Western Conservatory of the Arts and Sciences has been established by Geoffrey Botkin’s seven children to honor his vision in regard to Christendom. They believe the foundations of civil society can be improved for the future and must not be surrendered to a cultural way of thinking that is hostile to the past.
The vision is simple: that scriptural wisdom can be applied to maturity and leadership in all areas of society, including the gates of business, media, jurisprudence, science, the fine arts, education, and church reform. They believe these disciplines must integrate and should be mastered by all leaders because of personal duties to the King of Kings.
Outside Hollywood is a website for independent filmmakers written by Isaac Botkin, the author of the book Outside Hollywood.

- Parental Rights
Their campaign exists to secure a constitutional amendment that defends the rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children. At ParentalRights.org, they believe that no government, regardless of how well-intentioned it might be, can replace the love and nurture of a parent in the life of a child. It’s a relationship worth protecting.That’s why their sole purpose is to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect parental rights. Without secured parental rights, the vital child-parent relationship is exposed to the imminent danger posed by anti-parent judges within the federal courts, as well as to the risks of international law which seeks to undermine the parental role.By placing current Supreme Court doctrine into the express language of the U.S. Constitution, the Parental Rights Amendment will shield the child-parent relationship from government intrusion. It will ensure that parental rights are preserved as a fundamental constitutional right.
- Home School Legal Defence Association (HSLDA)
Their mission is to preserve and advance the fundamental, God-given, constitutional right of parents and others legally responsible for their children to direct their education. In so doing, they rely on two fundamental freedoms—parental rights and religious freedom. They advocate for these freedoms in the courtrooms, before government officials, and in the public arena. Additionally, they assist other educational organizations in similar activities, where possible and appropriate
