Our 2018 Work Has Begun

January 11

Dear Friends,

Last week I asked, “What Will Idaho Look Like in 2018”?  Together, you and I, have a voice in that!

Family Policy Alliance of Idaho is committed to being your eyes, hands, and feet at the Capitol.

The 2018 Legislative Session began on Monday of this week with talk of taxes, health care, education funding, prisons, literacy, etc. We all know that policy that addresses life, privacy, and parental rights is rarely mentioned in State of the State speeches.  Issues like these are not included as lines on a ledger either. They do not have to be because you and I know just how important these issues are and how worthy they are of our energy and resources.

For decades we have been working on multiple issues impacting family, life, faith, and freedom.

Here are some of the issues for which we will be advocating in 2018:

  • Parental Rights
  • Educational Choice
  • Student Privacy Protection
  • Life
  • Homeschool Freedom
  • Simon’s Law

As in years past, we will also stand in the way of policy that is bad for family, life, and faith, and freedom:

  • We will again oppose any effort to repeal Idaho’s Constitutional definition of marriage.
  • We will again oppose amending the Idaho Human Rights code to include “gender identity” and sexual orientation. The reason that business owners like Jack Phillips and Baronnelle Stutzman and dozens of others have been in court fighting for their rights is because their businesses are in cities or states that have added those words.

Family Policy Alliance of Idaho is part of a great coalition of pro-life organizations in Idaho who have worked together to protect pre-born children.  2018 will be no exception!  We also have a tremendous coalition of national allies with which we will also work in 2018.

We are excited to be a part of God’s plan for Idaho along with you.

Together, we will be able to contend with the Goliath that is Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and their allies.
