Toward a New Stereotype

with one comment

Today is West Virginia day and to celebrate our state’s history, a group of bloggers from around the state are trying to “define West Virginia from the inside out.”  It is, in short, and opportunity for individuals and businesses to share their vision for West Virginia, with the hope that, in some small way, those beyond the borders of the Mountain State will get a more clear picture about this unique land.

The Family Policy Council of West Virginia has a very simple vision.  The Family Policy Council of West Virginia is prepared to advocate for policies that will support your family and strengthen our communities.  Our mision is to advocate for policies that embrace the sanctity of human life, enrich marriage, and safeguard religious freedom.  Our work will equip families in our churches, encourage our leaders to be family-first in their leadership, and defend the family in our courts against those special interests groups that may attempt to undermine the family in West Virginia.

We will know we have accomplished our mission when:

  • West Virginians treat life as preciously as the God who created it does.
  • One man and one woman live in the bonds of marriage for life, at the center of a strong and growing family.
  • West Virginia families freely worship without encumbrance or interference by their government.

In short, the future that the Family Policy Council of West Virginia sees is one where the family is the first priority for our leaders; not an afterthought.  It is one where, while the necessary discussions about jobs, economic growth, and the rest center around what is most important for our children’s future.

To that end, the Family Policy Council of West Virginia is committed to developing programs that will encourage the family, equipping volunteers with the knowledge to impact their communities for the family, and shaping the political debate at every level of our state on behalf of the family.

Happy West Virginia Day!
