Letter to Congressional Leaders to Promote Values issues in the Upcoming Appropriations Bills for FY2017

April 11, 2016

Hawaii Family Forum signed onto a letter to Congressional leaders.  The letter, in part, states that “[w]hile it is essential to protect provisions in current law that positively affect policy on matters of life, family, religious liberty, and other values issues, merely keeping the status quo is not sufficient in a culture, and under an Administration, that regularly attacks the values of the people we represent. The undersigned organizations may not take a position on all the specific provisions, but we agree that fighting for the policy riders is an important trust building measure between the American people and Washington.”

“Of particular importance are riders that provide conscience protections for individuals, employers, schools, and businesses, allowing them to live and work according to their orthodox moral or religious beliefs.”
