The State of the Union Depends on the State of the Family

Barb Wire

If his past speeches are any indication, President Obama will avoid family issues in his State of the Union address — but that doesn’t mean we should.

On Monday, January 11th, at 7:00PM (ET), FRC is putting the spotlight where this administration refuses to: on faith, family, and freedom.

In our second State of the Family report to the nation, I’ll be highlighting key issues of concern and policy solutions in the areas of life, marriage, and religious liberty. These priorities, which are usually missing from the president’s speech, give us an opportunity to focus leaders’ attention on issues Congress should be addressing.

It’s time for the GOP to steer the nation back to the timeless truth that strong families make a stronger America. And FRC is in a unique position to make the case why. Join us next Monday, January 11, for a live stream of the speech. Help us illustrate the threats to the Christian faith, the family, and American freedoms by tuning in and offering your support to reversing these trends.

Event description:

While the state of the union waxes and wanes with changes in government leadership, the American family has always been the backbone that makes this country strong. Strong families make a strong America. Family Research Council is in a unique position to examine the state of the family in our nation.

From the group’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., FRC President Tony Perkins will deliver a 30-minute State of the Family Address to the nation on January 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. EST. Perkins will examine how the family is doing in the areas of religious freedom, life, and marriage. In attendance at the event will be families who have been uniquely impacted by the erosion of religious liberty.
