Through educating and inspiring Americans to become involved in protecting the United States, Family Security Matters hopes to stimulate a national discussion about the issues that are essential to the task. The United States does not belong to the lawmakers and national policy does not affect just the interest groups. This is our government and our country and it is up to us, as Americans, to shape it according to our values. As you learn more about the issues through this site, FSM also wants to provide easily accessible ways for you to make your voice heard and so we've created this page as a single location for all the information necessary for you to become personally involved. As we take what we have learned and demand that our voices be heard, we can help shape American policy to protect our communities and preserve our way of life.
