Can We Count On Your Support?

Written by David E. Smith

Our Christian values, common sense, and most basic freedoms have been under severe and growing attack for years, but perhaps never as intensely as the past few years. From pro-life prayer warriors to students to pastors to the those employed in secular businesses, no one has been safe from attacks by the apostles of wokeism, federal agencies of the Biden administration, and other aggressive opponents of orthodox Christianity and western culture.… Continue Reading

Help Us Uphold the Truth on #GivingTuesday

Today has become known as “Giving Tuesday,” a day when charities ask you to consider helping fund their worthwhile efforts.

Since 2010, Illinois Family Action (IFA) has been a bold voice for the sanctity of life, religious liberty, education choice and other family issues. Specifically, we’ve worked diligently in the political arena to help elect the best pro-family candidates for state and federal office. As a result, we’ve seen dozens of RINOs retired.

These core beliefs are some of the key building blocks behind what we do, but they aren’t just things we’ve decided on a whim.… Continue Reading

Help Us Expose Democrat’s Abortion Extremism

Written by David E. Smith

If you are like me, you’re beyond frustrated hearing abortion cheerleaders in Illinois call pro-life candidates (and activists by extension) “extreme” because of the view that all human life is sacred and should not be gruesomely “terminated” and callously disposed of at will and for convenience sake.

If you are like me, you talk back to the radio, television or computer screen when you hear JB Pritzker claim that abortion is “health care,” or that Darren Bailey is a disqualified leader for pointing out the fact that millions of babies have been destroyed in the name of “choice.”… Continue Reading

URGENT: Please Stand With IFA

Written by David E. Smith

Illinois Family Institute (IFI) has been fighting for traditional family values for more than thirty years now. We have never been afraid to stand up and speak out in the public square for the Judeo-Christian values upon which our country was founded, or to roll up our sleeves to do the hard work of advancing the truth no matter how “politically incorrect.”

In 2010 we launched Illinois Family Action (IFA), our 501c4 political arm, which allows us to be more involved in elections, helping the best candidates (state and federal) in their primaries and/or general election races.… Continue Reading
