OUR MISSION

is to equip Tennesseans and their public officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values God’s design for marriage, the family, life, and religious liberty for the common good.

WE BELIEVE

that healthy families and communities come about when basic values from the Bible are embraced and upheld. Even those who may not believe everything in the Bible have found it hard to overlook its long track record of providing a foundation for stable societies. Neglecting commonsense biblical values contributes to many of our nation’s current ills like crime, disease, divorce, “unwanted” pregnancies, teen suicide, and academic failure.

OUR VALUES

include respect for marriage and families, life, and religious liberty. When the government protects these time-tested values, they, in turn, protect the family. We believe churches, families, and individuals are best equipped to foster these values. And we believe that government should not work against them. Our desire is to provide educational resources for each of these to function in their respective areas of responsibility.

Legislative advocacy related to the educational activities of Alliance for Law and Liberty is conducted by separate organization, The Family Action Council of Tennessee.

Did you know that there are currently 39 other nonprofit organizations in the United States that do the kind of work FACT does to help defend religious liberty and God’s design for the family and promote biblical principles relative to the family on a state level?

FACT IS A FAMILY POLICY COUNCIL

These organizations are collectively known as family policy councils. Though they each work independently and are not financially linked, as a whole, FPCs share a common goal.FACT works with these other family policy councils to prepare, promote, and defend pro-family legislation, communicate important issues from across our nation to pro-family constituents in Tennessee, and stand in agreement and celebrate victories with other FPCs that share Tennessee’s common goals.

The Constitutional Government Defense Fund (CGDF) is an initiative under the auspices of Alliance for Law and Liberty and engages in strategic litigation that is consistent with the legislative policy goals of The Family Action Council of Tennessee.

The Constitutional Government Defense Fund (CGDF) is an initiative under the auspices of Alliance for Law and Liberty and engages in strategic litigation that is consistent with the legislative policy goals of The Family Action Council of Tennessee.

The purpose of CGDF is to evaluate the prosecution of lawsuits where government actions violate constitutional principles that, if unchecked, will prohibit the state of Tennessee from adopting public policies that reflect that human beings are made in the image of God and, as such, were created male and female.

Currently, its litigation efforts are focused on allowing the citizens of Tennessee, through their elected representatives, to secure to themselves and their descendants the fundamental right to life of all natural persons, born and unborn, and to determine matters of a purely domestic nature that pertain to marriage and the structure of the family.
