WASHINGTON, DC – Leading up to Election Day, Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), organized a fleet of four Values Buses that made scores of stops in a dozen battleground states and organized the distribution of nearly 2 million voter guides targeting supporters, churches, activist groups, and state/local organizations. FRC also held 140 pastor events in 19 states. FRC Action teams knocked on more than 427,000 doors and launched a social media blitz across a dozen states that were viewed more than 7 million times.

Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins released the following statement on tonight’s election results:

Most presidents lose seats in the House and Senate in the first midterm election. But President Trump defied history, expanding the GOP majority in the Senate despite losing the House. Why? Because this is a president who has done something rare in American politics. He is fulfilling campaign promises such as stopping the use of taxpayer dollars for abortions and putting an end to 8 years of a withering assault on religious freedom.

As they did two years ago, values voters turned out in droves — motivated by a president who is not just stopping the liberal policies of his predecessor but dismantling them.

While Democrats appear to have narrowly taken control of the House of Representatives, they did so without any clear governing mandate. Nancy Pelosi certainly cannot claim a blanket endorsement of her radical policies.   However, President Trump and Senate Republicans certainly have a mandate to confirm constitutionalists to the nation’s courts and oppose the Pelosi agenda.   Consider that voters in West Virginia and Alabama approved pro-life ballot measures and polls show nearly two-thirds of Americans oppose the government’s forcing taxpayers to fund abortion. There is simply no groundswell of support for forcing taxpayers to become indentured servants to the abortion industry.

We will stand with President Trump and Majority Leader McConnell in working to repel the Pelosi agenda that is at odds with the values that made America a great nation,” concluded Perkins.

See FRCA’s new ad on the Texas Privacy Act

by FRC Action

August 10, 2017

Family Research Council Action (FRC Action) launched a video ad campaign across Texas that exposes the hypocrisy of corporations that are opposing the special session legislation that protects the privacy and safety of women and children.

FRC Action’s social media ad campaign calls on House Speaker Joe Straus, Rep. Byron Cook and other Texas State Representatives (Dennis Bonnen, Charlie Geren, Ken King, John Kuempel, and Chris Paddie) to listen to their constituents and support the Texas privacy legislation instead of listening to corporations such as American Airlines and Google which advocate for bathroom policies that they will not adopt in their own facilities. The hypocrisy begs the question, “Why is big business getting involved in the state government?”

Last week, the Texas State Senate passed the bill which prevents public schools and government buildings from adopting policies that would open women’s showers, bathrooms, and changing facilities to men and visa-versa. It also prevents political subdivisions from forcing businesses and organizations, including contractors, to open their showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms to people of the opposite sex. It leaves private entities free to determine their own policies regarding the use of shared bathrooms and showers.

Here is the transcript of the “Big Business Hypocrisy” Ad:

They say ‘Don’t mess with Texas,’ right?

So, why is big business getting involved in the state government?

Well, you probably know the Trump administration left the states the power to determine the shower, locker room, and restroom policies of schools.

Smart move.

So, during the regular session, the Texas Senate passed the Privacy Act, which would have protected the privacy and safety of women and children.

The act is simple.

It would have required schools and state buildings to have policies that require people to use the facility that corresponds to their biological sex and to make accommodations for those who identify as transgender. It would have left businesses free to adopt whatever policy they want.

So, what’s the big deal?

Well, big business is demanding Texas expose women and children to policies that could endanger them in the most private of places… by allowing men into women’s restrooms and locker rooms.

But those same businesses like Hilton, Marriott, La Quinta, American Airlines, Google, and others refuse to enact the same unsafe policies in their own facilities… even though they are free to do it.

It’s hypocrisy.

Call House Speaker Joe Straus. Urge him to stop blocking a strong shower, locker room, and bathroom privacy bill from getting a House vote.

Will Speaker Straus side with the Obama administration’s radical agenda, or listen to the overwhelming number of Texans who support the commonsense Texas Privacy Act?
