The Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (See below for latest blog posts.)

Supporting family values in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park

Welcome to the website of the Prince William and Manassas Family Alliance (PWMFA). We are a grassroots organization of citizens of Prince William County and the independent cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, Virginia, dedicated to supporting and promoting the values inherent in the concept of family. Learn more about us.

Where they stand

Our goal is to help Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park voters learn about the candidates campaigning to represent them in public office, especially the school board, state legislature, Board of County Supervisors and City Council. Our focus is where the candidates stand on key issues affecting the family.

  • We prepare voter guides for each election.  See the 2018 ELECTIONS.
  • We maintain an active website to, among other things, draw attention to school issues, elections, and the need for Christian leadership on issues affecting the family.
  • We seek to build a network of church contacts throughout the county and cities (Manassas and Manassas Park) with an interest in promoting the institution of the family and an educated electorate.
  • We hold candidate forums/interviews  to give pastors and candidates an opportunity to explore the views of candidates or potential candidates.

Some of our Achievements

  • Led the successful campaign for the Marriage Amendment in 2006, carrying Prince William Co.  and Manassas by a larger margin than statewide.
  • Led the successful fight against off-track betting in Manassas Park in 2004.
  • Distributed Voter Guides to Prince William County churches area.
  • Successfully promoted internet filtering in public libraries and abstinence-based family life education.

VOTER GUIDES: Virginia Catholic Conference

Here is how the VA Catholic Conference describes itself.

Who We Are
In late 2004, Virginia’s Catholic bishops founded the Virginia Catholic Conference to represent them and their dioceses of Arlington and Richmond by advocating for public policy that reflects natural law, advances human dignity and serves the common good. The Conference primarily addresses policy issues considered by the Virginia General Assembly and state agencies. In addition, the Conference supports the efforts of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which addresses federal policy issues considered by the U.S. Congress and executive branch in Washington, D.C. (from here)

There are not a lot of bells and whistles, but the VA Catholic Conference does have voter guide on Virginia’s U.S. Senate election. These are pdf files. One is English, and the other is in Spanish.

With respect to the issues that concern VA Catholic Conference, there is a fair amount of information. Check it out.

WHY THOSE QUESTIONS ON THE PWMFA VOTER GUIDE? — PART 3

Here is the fifth question we will include in our voter guide for the following election, Chairman, Prince William County School Board, At Large. This election is scheduled for November 6, 2018 (see 2018 ELECTIONS).

Do you support or oppose the school board hiring retired police officers as armed guard in schools?

This question is closely related to the sixth question (see WHY THOSE QUESTIONS ON THE PWMFA VOTER GUIDE? — PART 2). As the articles below explain, Prince William County Schools is currently pilot testing a program to hire retired law enforcement officers to provide additional school security.
