‘Conservative Women Leaders Speak Out’
Press Conference in Concord Set by FRC, Heritage Foundation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tuesday in Concord, N.H., women’s rights and religious liberty will be upheld by Family Research Council (FRC) and The Heritage Foundation when the public policy groups hold a joint press conference called “Conservative Women Leaders Speak Out.” The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the New Hampshire State House.
Speakers include Connie Mackey of FRC Action; Karen Testerman of First Principles of NH; and Jessica Anderson of Heritage Action for America (the political action arm of The Heritage Foundation). The participants will debunk the idea that conservatives are attacking women’s rights, and discuss how the Obama administration is threatening religious liberty.
Genevieve Wood, vice president at The Heritage Foundation, said:
“From health care to the economy, the policies promoted by this administration and their allies on the left are a direct attack on individual freedom and free enterprise – and that is a threat to all Americans, including women.”
FRC and The Heritage Foundation are in the midst of a nationwide bus tour until the Nov. 6 elections. Their “Values Bus” tour is raising awareness about critical values issues that must be addressed by the next president and Congress. Heritage is educating voters about “Saving the American Dream”—its blueprint for reforming health care and restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington, D.C. The FRC is registering voters and signing up “Champions” to lead voter registration drives.
