The Center for Arizona Policy: Promoting
Family, Faith, and Freedom
The Center for Arizona Policy is part of a 50-state nonprofit partnership associated with Focus on the Family. Their mission is "to strengthen the family by educating Arizonans on public policy issues that impact the family and equipping them to promote traditional values." CAP President Len Munsil, an attorney, and his wife Tracy, a political journalist, are homeschool parents with eight children. The CAP team works hard to promote pro-life, pro-family bills. Believe me, they need all the help they can get to battle our current liberal legislature! CAP-initiated laws that have taken effect in Arizona include Covenant Marriage and reciting the Declaration of Independence in schools. When working with legislators or being interviewed by the press, CAP leaders are often asked how many members their organization represents. They are now offering annual memberships for just $25. Members can greatly enhance CAP's ability to impact public policy in Arizona for the benefit of our children and families, and to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage. Whether or not you become a member, you can sign up for CAP's e-mail updates and alerts. You can also volunteer to distribute monthly Family Focus bulletins at your church, which feature biblically-oriented issues and events of interest to concerned Christians. For more information, visit their website at www.cenazpol.org, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 480-922-3101. Their office is located at 11000 N. Scottsdale Rd., Suite 120,

WallBuilders WallBuilders is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration of the moral and religious foundation on which America was built. WallBuilders’ goal is to exert a direct and positive influence in government, education, and the family by (1) educating the nation concerning the Godly foundation of our country; (2) providing information to federal, state, and local officials as they develop public policies which reflect Biblical values; and (3) encouraging Christians to be involved in the civic arena. The heart of their educational work, and that which makes WallBuilders so unique, is their library of rare historical documents. From these priceless resources, they are able to document the rich religious and moral history of America as well as to establish the original intent undergirding the various clauses of our Constitution.
Based on extensive research, they have produced nearly two dozen books and videos applying the lessons of history to contemporary issues. These books and videos not only present our nation’s rich heritage but they also introduce the current generation of Americans to an uncensored view of America’s religious and political history.
