“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

Congress is in recess until September 10. This means your members are home and in your “backyard.”Nothing is more fun in the summertime than a backyard grill. So contact your Members of Congress, tell them your concerns, and hold them accountable for their actions here in Washington, D.C.

Act Now:

With the recent shooting at the Family Research Council, this week is a reminder that your prayers are needed here in Washington, D.C. While groups like Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) work on your behalf, we require “back-up.” Everyone knows the best defense is a good offense, so we ask that you pray for the safety and efforts of CWALAC staff as we work here in D.C. and around the nation.
