Citizens for Traditional Values (CTV) is a Lansing area nonprofit group connected to the Foundation for Traditional Values (FTV) that organizes around the “importance of personal freedom and traditional family values” by working for the adoption of laws and policies that reflect those values (mission). CTV works on accomplish this by “educating, networking, and mobilizing the pro-life, pro-family community” with the organization aggressively seeking to link church participation in electoral campaigns, particularly by encouraging church members to move “from the pews to the polls” and to get involved in politics at all levels by praying, voting, electing moral people, and even running themselves . The group’s core principles are that Christianity is the foundation of “American freedom,” the sanctity of life from conception, “a free enterprise philosophy of government,” and educational freedom for parents.
