When President Obama addresses Congress and the nation in the State of the Union Address, he'll likely tell the gathered legislators and television cameras that the state of our union is strong. While the extent of America's strength is debatable — depending on who you're talking to — there is no question the American family has always been the backbone that makes this country strong. Strong families make a strong America.
From its headquarters in Washington, D.C., Family Research Council is in a unique position to examine the state of the family in our nation, and tonight, January 19, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. EST FRC President Tony Perkins will deliver a State of the Family Address to the nation.
In attendance will be American families who have experienced firsthand the battles for faith, family and freedom that have been waged in our country. Perkins will examine how the family is doing in the areas of religious freedom, life, and marriage. Please tune in to this unique perspective on the issues facing the family today. Watch live at 7:00 p.m. EST, and on-demand shortly after the event. Follow the discussion on Twitter with #SOTF.
