I've got got news for you, despite what's happening in D.C.! You've got to see what our team at FDF is up to in states across the nation!
I know many of us are distressed by what we see going on in Washington right now.
Between theatrics on TV and new, extremist policies being introduced under the radar, there's plenty to worry about.
But God is still in control! Just yesterday afternoon, I was texting with our local leaders to encourage key Senators to vote against mandating all Americans to pay for abortions up until the moment of birth and against mandating healthcare workers to participate in abortions against their consciences.
These are uphill battles, but we are not afraid. We welcome the opportunity to stand for what is right, even when the odds are stacked against us.
And I'm very grateful to report that there's plenty of good news too!
The majority of states in our nation are now being governed by Republican Governors and/or state legislatures!
And if you look back in the the past few years, it has been these statehouses that have taken important steps to protect precious, unborn children.
So, while we continue to stand for the Constitution here in Washington and have pledged to do all we can to stop the anti-life and anti-freedom extremism of the Biden administration, our team is re-doubling all of our efforts to get Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF) members activated in states across America.
Please take a few moments and review our SPRING 2021 FREDERICK DOUGLASS FOUNDATION STATE CAMPAIGN strategy below. If you live in one of these states and want to join us, just reply back and I'll get you connected with the FDF leader in your state.
No matter who sits in the oval office, our mission doesn't stop. We're more determined than ever. I pray you're with us!
For Him, Rev. Dean Nelson Chairman, Frederick Douglass Foundation
