Pursuing Generational

A Generational Win achieves a significant victory that changes the law and culture of a nation for a generation. It is sustained by deliberate action so that the victory endures for future generations. We are working to secure Generational Wins in the five key areas below:

We counter the global persecution of Christians and advocate for the right of all people to freely live out their faith

All can speak freely

We defend freedom of speech – the foundation of every free and democratic society

Parental rights are guaranteed

We ensure the primacy of parental authority in decisions affecting children

Life is safeguarded

We uphold the inherent right to life under international law and support legal protections for life at the national level.

Marriage and the family are protected

We defend marriage and the family and challenge practices that destroy life and break family ties
