Social Issues

We are a driving force in the battle to promote values that derive from the human dignity, entrusted to us by our Creator. We strive to promote the universal truth, that we are all “created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

We focus on social issues such as religious liberty, the integrity of marriage and the family, and the sanctity of human life. We believe that these issues all lie at the very heart of our society, and must be protected to ensure a thriving society.

Our focus includes:

  • Promoting traditional marriage and family life
  • Dignity of every human person, including unborn children
  • Defending religious liberty
