Eagle Forum Brochure
Join Eagle Forum so you will have a strong voice at the U.S. Capitol and at State Capitols.
Our Missionis to enable conservative and pro-family men and women to participate in the process of self-government and public policy-making so that America will continue to be a land of individual liberty, with respect for the nuclear family, public and private virtue, and private enterprise.
Our website, EagleForum.org, is a tremendous resource, including Eagle Forum Report, news on national issues, Teen Eagles, state news, and legislative alerts to contact Congressmen.
Eagle Forum was founded by Phyllis Schlafly and a dedicated group of volunteers. Phyllis Schlafly was a dynamic and charismatic leader who inspired countless women and men to speak up and speak out. For nearly fifty years, Eagle Forum’s network of state organizations has led the charge to mobilize the grassroots to defend the founding principles of the United States. Please join us to protect our rights!
Eagle Forum successfully led the ten-year battle to defeat the misnamed Equal Rights Amendment with its hidden agenda of same-sex marriages and tax-funded abortions. Eagle Forum was a primary factor in passing the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment, which protects children against psychological testing and screening without parental consent.
Invest in future generations by contributing to scholarships for Student Eagles to attend our annual conference, Eagle Council.
Eagle Forum supports U.S. Constitution
We support the sanctity of human life as a gift from our Creator, as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence.We oppose all efforts to call a new Constitutional Convention. We support congressional action to curb the imperial judiciary by refusing to confirm activist judges and by withdrawing jurisdiction from the federal courts over areas where we cannot trust them, such as the Pledge of Allegiance, the Ten Commandments, and the definition of marriage.
We support the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed in the Second Amendment.
We support making elections honest by requiring picture ID and cleaning up registration rolls.

We oppose all encroachments against American sovereignty through U.N. treaties or conferences that try to impose energy restrictions, trade regulations, global taxes, gun registration, or feminist goals.
We support U.S. military superiority as the best key to national security and world peace.
We support making English our official language.
We support immediate border security to stop the entry of illegal aliens, illegal drugs, women seeking to give birth to “anchor babies,” Third World diseases, criminal gangs, and potential terrorists.

We oppose government-financed incentives that result in fatherless children, divorce, illegitimacy, and stereotyping men as abusers of women.
We oppose same-sex marriages, tax-funded abortions and drafting our daughters into military combat.
We oppose the concept that the “village” (the government) should raise the child. We oppose public schools overriding parents on moral issues.

We support teaching schoolchildren accurate American history and that we are a land of freedom and opportunity. We oppose teaching schoolchildren that America is an unjust nation and they should conform to leftwing goals of diversity, multiculturalism, political correctness, and globalism.
We support fathers’ and mothers’ rights to guide the education of their own children and to homeschool without oppressive government regulations.
We oppose the Common Core standards and national control of testing or curriculum. We oppose data-mining school children.
We oppose the feminist goal of taxpayer financed and regulated daycare and pre-kindergarten.
