The ACLU wants to silence legislators who are working hard to promote their Christian moral beliefs and policies. Legislators are facing evermore hostile media and highly divisive politics. These legislators will have more and more establishment pressure put on them to shed principles—particularly those legislators who could emerge as leaders themselves and advance the fight for godly values.

To respond to this challenge and give pro-family citizens the opportunity to vote for stronger pro-family candidates, Family Policy Foundation created the Statesmen Academy. Since 2016, the Academy has provided rigorous training by experienced Christian legislative leaders, which has produced graduates bonded in an enduring fellowship of mutual encouragement and accountability, spiritual strength and political wisdom.

Our students are men and women who have been elected to office recently or who are about to run. We teach them the legislative art of patience and persistence, unwavering principles, and passionate, respectful advocacy. In short, we are training politicians in the practice of effective politics.
