EQUIPPING SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Social conservatives are in the crosshairs of the most consequential issues facing our nation. From religious freedom and conscience rights, to human dignity and sexuality, to abortion and end-of-life care, those who hold traditional Judeo-Christian values and conservative political views are most often on the defensive. But now—with Family Policy Foundation’s Social Conservative Academy—conservative citizens have the education and training needed to go on offense.

The Social Conservative Academy (SCA) was developed with moms and dads, grandparents, and conservative citizens of all walks of life in mind. Family Policy Foundation created SCA to be accessible, relevant, and actionable. Through SCA, citizens are equipped to understand the critical issues facing families and society, how to respond to them, and how to make a real difference.

If you want to know how to stand for your family’s values, make schools and communities safe from Woke ideology, and set our nation free from the far Left agenda, then the Social Conservative Academy is for you!

WHAT IS THE SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE ACADEMY?

The Academy is a collection of timely courses including issue briefings, communications training, grassroots lobbying, “how to” instruction, and more. Each class will illuminate a relevant topic through the insight of key policymakers, experts, and other public figures, leaving every student a better-informed and more effective advocate for family values.

Designed to accommodate your busy schedule, every Academy course is completely online. Courses are offered live throughout the year and on-demand with an interactive module. All sessions are timed to share the information you need in the quickest way possible!

WHY DO I NEED THIS TRAINING?

America is on the cusp of determining its moral future. The issues we advocate for and defend at Family Policy Alliance and Foundation are in the crosshairs. Will we protect unborn babies, people with disabilities, and the elderly from conception until natural death? Will we offer help or harm to people struggling with gender identity? Will we safeguard vulnerable children or privilege the impulses of confused adults?

Social conservatives must not sit on the sidelines during these monumental debates. Real people must become really engaged. Yet, we cannot enter the public square empty-handed. Winning means arming ourselves with the tools for success: persuasive arguments, effective strategies, and a God-honoring tone.

That is where the Academy comes in! Our classes will empower you with the information and equip you with the skills you need to become a strong advocate for your family and community.

Our children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews are relying on us to get this right, so let’s get to work!

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The Social Conservative Academy will equip you to understand the challenging issues and related policies facing your family, and train you to effectively confront those challenges.

Among our courses you will find:

  • A Member of Congress and state legislators will teach you how to engage in the lawmaking process, sharing an insider’s view of effective activism in local, state, and federal government.
  • A state Family Policy Council leader will encourage you with examples of grassroots activists who channeled their concerns into concrete action and secured significant victories.
  • An All American NCAA athlete-turned activist will help you discover the power of storytelling in politics.
  • A pro-family thought leader will explain how you can advance your values and win by building relationships with unlikely allies.
