4 The Children USA
Proud sponsors of the 4th Annual Remembrance of Nancy Schaefer Event
MARCH 26, 2019
NATIONAL MALL - WASHINGTON, DC
Join us on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 in our Nation's Capital, Washington, DC for the first major event of the 2019 year in Remembrance of one of our very own, highly motivated and dedicated warrior, Nancy S. Schaefer. A former Georgia Senator who due to her extreme activism was on March 26, 2010, murdered along with her husband by the very system that she was exposing. Nancy was well-spoken on family values and an advocate for families & children fighting family courts and child protective services. Prior to her death, Nancy had been working diligently on a documentary and was writing a book. Unfortunately, due to her death, we will never know what would have been in the documentary or book. There are too many inconsistencies in the investigation and we the people demand a new investigation be opened to the cause of Nancy and her husband’s death.
“We the People” of the Family Law Reform movement live in her legacy.
Gone, but never forgotten! Rest in Peace! We’ll take it from here!
History of Nancy S. Schaefer;
Born in Clayton, Georgia and of German descent, Schaefer went to the University of Georgia and the Atlanta College of Art. She then received her bachelor's degree from Wesleyan College.
Schaefer became a prominent conservative political activist in Georgia in the 1980s. She subsequently ran for Mayor of Atlanta in 1993, before running as the Republican Party's nominee for Lieutenant governor of Georgia in 1994, where she lost to incumbent Democrat Pierre Howard. She unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Governor in 1998, finishing in third place behind Guy Millner and Mike Bowers with 7.7% of the vote in the party's primary election. She was elected to the State Senate in 2004 for the northern-state 50th district, where she served until she was defeated by Jim Butterworth in a Republican primary in 2008. She had also sought to wrest the Republican nomination for Georgia's 10th congressional district from Paul Broun in 2008, but withdrew her candidacy before the primary election and lost her seat in the senate in 2009.
Throughout her career as an activist and politician, she was a champion of Christian conservative causes, opposing the department of Child Protective Services (a.k.a. Department of Children and Families). After four years of investigation, on November 16, 2007 she published a report entitled "The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services". After publishing the report, in a press conference she exclaimed that the report caused her to lose her position as a Georgia State Senator. In addition, she stood firmly in her support of the Pro-Life agenda, and opposed Gay marriage. In expressing her Christian beliefs, she promoted the display of the Ten Commandments in public places. She was a senior official in the Baptist church, having served as a First Vice President of the Georgia Baptist Convention.

Schaefer was found dead at her home in Turnerville, Georgia in Habersham County on 26 March 2010 with a single gunshot wound to her back along with her husband of 52 years, Bruce Schaefer who was found with a single gunshot wound to his chest. Police concluded the deaths to have been a murder–suicide perpetrated by her husband, but the motive for the murder was unclear and never established. Years before her death when she still an elected official, she published and promoted the report " eulogized her as "almost like a rock star of the Christian right".
