12 Region Tour Recap

This year’s 12-Region Tour across Iowa was a tremendous success!

Over three weeks, and 14 stops, we met with hundreds of our supporters and new, curious individuals.

Every stop was different, as each community has its own personality.  But some things were extremely consistent.  Everyone who came left energized, reinvigorated to engage in civics like they never had before.  They were passionate to protect and defend that most sacred and important institution – the family.

Here’s a photo summary of what we saw on the tour:

Here our grassroots director, Greg Baker, shows some of the information we share with pastors to equip them with advice regarding elections.

FRC bus tour

Halfway through our tour, we were fortunate to partner with FRC and NOM on the “Standing for the American Family” joint bus tour which took a separate route, and encouraged folks to get out and vote for the candidates who stand for the American family.  TFL was represented by staff throughout the tour.

The purposes of doing tours like this is not only to connect with our current supporters, but also connect with new people through the media, and this tour was no exception!

We are so thankful for all the folks who gave up a few hours of their day to eat pizza with us and show their support for TFL and the most important institution of our culture – the family!
