Family Prosperity

The Madison Liberty Institute understands and champions the foundation on which our society was built – the FAMILY. Home, and the family, is where the fundamental principles of life and liberty, wrong from right – our understanding of ethics – are first introduced and taught.

According to the Family Prosperity Index, the breakdown of the family in society has “a direct and negative impact on personal and economic freedom in America.”

That is why, now, more than ever, is the time to take a stand for family. We must promote reforms and policies that strengthen economic freedom and sustain “the family as the fundamental unit of society.”

Will you join the Madison Liberty Institute in promoting family prosperity?

“The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family.” – Lee Iacocca
