Five years ago, the Lord led Family Policy Alliance’s sister Foundation to launch a training program for godly men and women called to serve in the mission field of public office. We all know the stories with unhappy endings—men and women who take on the title of Senator or Representative but later forget why they began serving in the first place, forsake their families, and stray from their values. But what if the issues we care about—life, family, and religious freedom—could be shaped by trained leaders who are humble, biblically grounded, and willing to boldly champion policy that reflects their values? Out of this vision—and your ongoing, faithful support—the Statesmen Academy was born. The Academy is now an integral part of Family Policy Foundation’s mission, and four classes of trained statesmen and stateswomen are serving you and your families in 33 states across the country—many of them earning national recognition for championing your values.

I wanted to be sure you saw this short video from some of the state legislators who attended Called Together, a Statesmen Academy alumni reunion, this summer. It was the first event of its kind hosted by Family Policy Foundation – but it won’t be the last! As you’ll hear in the video, statesmen and women gleaned much-needed inspiration, encouragement, knowledge and strategy to continue fighting for families and biblical values. These elected officials are on the front lines in the policy battles we all care about, and because of your support, they are re-energized and equipped to stand for truth and lead well in 2022 and beyond.

Thank you for your generosity that makes Statesmen Academy training and events possible!

The Left is trying to aggressively impose their agenda on families with biblical values, including North Dakota families like yours.

That’s why, in 2016, Family Policy Alliance hired Mark Jorritsma to launch Family Policy Alliance/Family Policy Foundation of North Dakota. What a blessing it has been to see this organization grow and flourish!

Recently, Mark sent an email announcing the relaunch of these organizations under the new banner of North Dakota Family Alliance. While this means that these organizations will no longer be a part of the national organization, this move is being made with the full support of Family Policy Alliance.

Words cannot express how thankful we are that the Lord led us to launch the North Dakota operation five years ago. Since we launched this effort, your funds have helped this organization grow to be a premier force for families in the state.

Now, we’re facilitating this launch of North Dakota Family Alliance so that the organization can grow even more, be more strategic, and more impactful.

North Dakota needs this effort. With North Dakota Family Alliance, you have an organization focused even more extensively on seeing your state defended, your values advanced, and, for the sake of our nation, a state where faith, families, and freedom are protected.

Over the years, much of your support has gone to this North Dakota effort. We wholeheartedly encourage you to continue your support for North Dakota Family Alliance.

After a few months, we’ll plan to renew our updates to you, but it’ll be different. No longer will we house a North Dakota organization. That will all be Mark and his team – a new organization that has “spun out” to build on the previous work.

As we reach back out, we’ll share more about Family Policy Alliance’s exciting and growing plans at the national level. But today, our focus is on North Dakota and the launch of this independent organization.

We humbly ask you to contribute to North Dakota Family Alliance today. Your tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100, or greater will help make this North Dakota organization the force for good that your state needs!

For North Dakota and America,

Craig DeRoche
President & CEO




P.S. With your support of North Dakota Family Alliance, you’ll be standing up for life, religious liberty, parental rights, and other critical values in your state. And you’ll be helping North Dakota be a beacon of light to the rest of the nation as well. Thank you for your commitment!
