American Family Association 2 The American Family Association, a non-profit organization led by Donald Wildmon, represents traditional family values frequently overlooked by present culture and media. In order to continuously advocate the preservation of marriage and family, decency and morality, sanctity of human life, stewardship, and media integrity the American Family Association has employed several strategies to influence public policy. In 2001 the American Family Association advocated legislation in Mississippi to increase public awareness of God. The American Family Association managed to raise $25,000 for posters of the national motto, “In God We Trust”, in every Mississippi classroom (Byrd, 2005). The Mississippi bill that was passed in May 2001 mandated a national motto poster be displayed in every classroom, but did not provide funding. The American Family Association then called on all of its 200,000 members in all fifty states to contact their representatives to encourage similar laws (Associated Press, 2002). Louisiana has already passed legislation recommending, not mandating, the distribution of “In God We Trust” placards (Freedom From Religion, 2002). In other classroom legislation, the American Family Association conducted a lobbying campaign in North Carolina supporting an Apex High School senior. Julian Quesada, 17, aided in launching a bill that would require daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. Wake County Republicans, Senator Neal Hunt and Representative Russell Capps worked with Quesada as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
