Four Families Targeted by the Government for their Faith to Attend

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – On Monday, January 19, at 7:00 p.m., Family Research Council President Tony Perkins will deliver an address on the “State of the Family.” In a first-of-its-kind “State of the Family” report to the nation, the speech will highlight key issues of concern and policy solutions in the areas of the protection of human life, marriage, and religious liberty. 

The speech will be given at FRC’s headquarters one day before President Obama delivers his annual State of the Union address.   In attendance will be families who have been wrongly harmed by the government’s overreach, like Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Hahn family, Thomas and Victoria Miller, and the Bracy family.    

“The state of our union depends on the state of the family,” said FRC President Tony Perkins.  “Monday evening will be an opportunity to focus leaders’ attention on issues the new Congress should be addressing but may or may not want to discuss. 

“It’s time for the GOP to steer the nation back to the timeless truth that strong families make a stronger America,” concluded Perkins.
