Welcome to the American Values Network Educational Foundation! Along with the American Values Network, we are working to shape policies that reflect our values. See what we are up to below.
Climate change is one of the greatest moral, economic, and national security challenges of our time. The Pope, Rick Warren, National Association of Evangelicals, National Council of Churches, Billy Graham, and countless other religious leaders have said we have a moral responsibility to be good stewards of God’s creation and have highlighted the fact that it is the poor who are most affected and least able to adapt to climate change. People in developing countries are 20 times more likely to be affected by natural disasters than those living in other parts of the world. Furthermore, the instability caused by food and water scarcity and climate-related population migration is one of the greatest threats to U.S. national security, according to our military leaders.
The American Values Network Educational Foundation exists to educate faithful Americans and others of goodwill on pressing moral values issues in the public sphere and enable them to stand up, speak out, and actively participate in building up the American family and community that have always been at the core of our successful efforts to create a “more perfect union.”
AVN Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to promoting the values that have guided and defined our nation by providing citizens with the resources to stay informed about the most pressing matters of our day and enabling them to be effective advocates for our shared values.
Along with the American Values Network, AVN Educational Foundation seeks to be the SALT of public and civic discourse in America, preserving our values and heightening awareness of the key ingredients required for a prosperous society.
