FRANKLIN, Tenn. (June 7, 2016) – This week marks the 10th anniversary of the Family Action Council of Tennessee, and as a way of celebrating this momentous occasion, FACT has created a special web section called “Celebrate 10 Years with Us!” that highlights key moments in FACT’s history including ten important milestones.
“As I think back on our ten years,” says FACT President David Fowler, “I see how often we have helped Tennessee become the first and often only state to enact certain socially conservative and biblically based laws. We are the first and only state in the nation that has no state or local sexual orientation/gender identity (SOGI) law, has a religious freedom protection law, and has a law protecting businesses from having local governments impose sexual orientation/gender identity laws on private businesses – the only state in which all three things can be said!”
“What has been accomplished in ten years, however,” continues Fowler, “is really a testament to the goodness and faithfulness of God expressed through the many who, over the years, have prayed for us, volunteered at our events, and invested their financial resources in our work. All of them are a vital part of what has been done.”
By the grace of God and the help of faithful supporters, FACT will continue to press for a state in which marriage is honored, families thrive, life is cherished, and religious liberty flourishes. FACT will do this by equipping the citizens and elected officials of Tennessee to effectively promote and defend God’s design for the family through public education, electoral accountability, effective advocacy, and strategic alliances with other like-minded organizations.
The Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT), which Fowler heads, was formed June 6, 2006, by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on marriage, families, life, and religious liberty. For more information, visit FACTn.org.
