STATEWIDE PRO-FAMILY GROUP RELEASES NEW PUBLICATION
Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators, 2019 Edition shows well-being of state closely
tied to well-being of marriage and family

Madison, WI—Today Wisconsin Family Council (WFC) announced the release of Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators, 2019 Edition.  The Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators, 2019 Edition is a premier publication unique to Wisconsin Family Council in the state.  It provides an overview of important indicators that impact Wisconsin and the state’s best resource: traditional families.

“We are pleased to provide this important resource to lawmakers, educators, pastors and ministry leaders, community leaders and concerned citizens in Wisconsin,” said Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Council. “Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators shows long-term trends affecting the social and economic health of Wisconsin’s families and children. When our families are strong, our state is strong. And the converse is certainly true, as well.”

The seventy-five-page publication includes data and trends for indicators such as “Family Structure and Income,” “Childbearing and Poverty,” “Births to Teenagers Age 15-19,” “Expenditures for Public Education (K-12),” “Underage Drinking Among High School Students,” and “Juvenile Arrests, as well as an extensive look at “Family and the Economy. Wisconsin-specific data is taken from state agencies; national data is largely from the ten-year census and the periodic intervening census updates. The publication is fully cited.

Copies of Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators, 2019 Edition have been distributed to the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, Wisconsin’s congressional delegation, all state legislators, secretaries of various state agencies, members of the judicial branch, mayors of the 49 largest cities, superintendents of all public school districts, all public libraries and to over 300 pastors.

“Over and over again, the data and trends clearly indicate that married, husband-wife families, on average, are in everyone’s best interest. They bolster the state’s economy and provide the best place for children to grow up to become healthy, well-adjusted, contributing workers and citizens.” said Appling. “This publication is designed to help decision makers and leaders craft policy and programs that strengthen marriage and families and in doing so strengthen our communities and state.”   

 

Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators, 2019 Edition is available online.

Wisconsin’s Cultural Indicators 2019 is the only document of its kind, giving statistical overview of Wisconsin, her values, and the impact on traditional families. When Wisconsin’s families are healthy, Wisconsin is healthy. When our state’s families are weak, struggling, and dependent on the government, that is sure to be reflected in the overall health of the state. The constitutionally required national ten-year census, most recently done in 2010, provides the cornerstone of much of this data. These statistics generally come from the Wisconsin and/or national government agencies responsible for tracking these indicators. We trust that public officials, educators at all levels, business leaders, pastors, ministry leaders, and lay citizens will find this Wisconsin Cultural Indicators 2019 Edition instructive and helpful as they make decisions affecting Wisconsin’s future.

10,000 Signed Petitions Delivered to Governor Evers “Take Down the ‘Pride’ Flag; Unite, Don’t Divide Our State”

10,000 Signed Petitions Delivered to Governor Evers
“Take Down the ‘Pride’ Flag; Unite, Don’t Divide Our State”

 

MADISON, WI –This morning Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Council, and a group of concerned citizens delivered 10,000 signed petitions to Governor Tony Evers’ office in the East Wing of the State Capitol. The petition addresses the Governor’s decision earlier this month to fly the LGBT “Rainbow Pride Flag” over the State Capitol and authorizing other state and public buildings to do the same, if they choose to.

“When the Governor issued his Executive Order regarding this flag on Friday, June 7, we immediately responded by encouraging people to call the Governor’s office and share their opinion on this decision.  On Tuesday, June 11, Wisconsin Family Council launched this petition drive to make it easier for people to express their opinion. In just two weeks we have had 10,000 Wisconsin citizens sign the petition calling on the Governor to remove the ‘Rainbow Pride Flag’ from the state capitol. That’s an incredible response,” Appling commented.

“Obviously many citizens are very concerned about this inappropriate and divisive decision and are reminding the Governor that the State Capitol or any state or public building are places representing all Wisconsin citizens, not just a select special-interest group, and that any flag that flies over these buildings should reflect that truth.”

The petition drive was conducted online, with a print version also available that people could download and circulate for multiple signatures.

Appling further remarked, “Governor Evers said during his campaign and has repeated since he took office, that he wants to unite Wisconsin. Flying this special-interest-group flag over the seat of government belonging to all Wisconsin citizens is anything but unifying. Our state affords Governor Evers many opportunities to find common ground and work together for the benefit of all our citizens.”
