WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins will host a special program with Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, North Carolina Lt. Governor Dan Forest, and others to talk about what states are doing to protect the safety and privacy of women and children, and to defend the freedom to believe. Guests include victims and experts.

Across the country radical LGBT activists are threatening religious freedom and violating the safety and privacy of women and children by forcing potentially dangerous policies on schools, businesses, and other public places, and punishing those who refuse to go along. In the wake of this attack on privacy and freedom, Family Research Council is hosting this special program to answer the following questions:

• How can churches help protect their community and be a voice for the vulnerable?
• What can state legislators do to push back against local ordinances and federal mandates forcing women and girls to share showers, restrooms, and locker rooms with men?
• What can parents and voters do to help?
