Off-year elections are often overlooked, but they play a crucial role in shaping our political landscape. These elections are often used to test hot-button issues on both sides of the aisle, before going full-force on the national stage. This year in Virginia, parental rights and abortion seem to be the dominating issues, potentially foreshadowing the Presidential race in 2024.

Joining Thursday’s live podcast to help us analyze this election is Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation of Virginia. She’ll help us follow the money, analyze Gov. Younkin’s impact, and share how The Family Foundation will respond to potential outcomes.

Cancel culture just hit home in a whole new way. You may have read about it or seen me interviewed on Fox News.

First, let me introduce myself. I’m Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation in Richmond, Virginia – one of the nearly 40 state groups served by Family Policy Alliance. I’m also privileged to serve on the board of Family Policy Alliance.

The other night, as I was about to head to a restaurant in Richmond for a dinner with a group of supporters of The Family Foundation, one of my team members got a call from an owner of the restaurant. He said staff members had looked up our organization and discovered our leading role in defending life and marriage in Virginia. As a result, they would not be serving us dinner that night.

While my team was able to quickly find another restaurant that gladly served our group a great dinner, the ugly reality hung in the air – we were canceled because of our work to protect life and to uphold God’s design for the family.

It’s not the first time we’ve been canceled.

The Family Foundation and some of our sister groups in other states were recently forced to find a new database provider because of those pro-life and pro-family positions. Some of our allies have suffered bank or insurance cancellations. And that’s not to mention physical attacks, such as when our Wisconsin ally was firebombed on Mother’s Day because of their pro-life work.

Why is this happening? Because this network of nearly 40 state “family policy councils” is having huge impact. In the last legislative cycle, they played a key role in passing more than 200 new pro-life, pro-family and pro-parent state policies – and defeating hundreds of anti-life, anti-family and anti-parent bills.

I’m so thankful we have a great national ally in this work. Family Policy Alliance, which helped start many of these state organizations over the years, is standing with us and equipping us to not only endure, but to thrive through cancel culture.

This year, Family Policy Alliance convened like-minded leaders in the fields of technology, insurance and banking to establish best policies and cancel-proof options for organizations like ours. I believe this ongoing work is critical to protecting freedom and continuing the progress on the issues that you and I care about.

That’s why I’m asking you to support Family Policy Alliance with your generous donation today.

You often see the work of the Family Policy Alliance team on key issues around the nation. But I’m here to tell you that their behind-the-scenes work in supporting the network of state policy organizations like the one I run is critical for the direction of our nation. Thanks for making this work possible with your support!

For life, family and freedom,

Victoria Cobb
President, The Family Foundation of Virginia
Board Member, Family Policy Alliance

 

P.S. It was a surreal feeling to be told that we couldn’t dine at a restaurant because of our beliefs. But cancel culture threatens far more than our restaurant choices. That’s why it’s critical that we prepare for it and push back against it. Your gift to Family Policy Alliance will help us continue to stand unapologetically for life, for family – and for freedom!

Families across the nation were thrilled last week when they saw that family issues won the day in Virginia – especially after the tragic situation out of Loudoun County Public Schools. There, the local school district seemingly covered up the sexual assault of a young girl (in the girls’ bathroom) by a boy who was wearing a skirt.

Since then, the Commonwealth’s election results have been the recipient of significant attention. Families have wondered, could a victory like that happen in my state? What does this mean for family issues and upcoming national elections?

Find out what really happened in Virginia when you join us TODAY for a conversation with Victoria Cobb, the seasoned leader of The Family Foundation of Virginia.
