1. Overview


Council for a Strong America supports federal policies that strengthen our nation

The decisions made by Congress and our president affect families and communities across the nation. While many decisions should be left up to states and localities, federal policies can play a role in enabling Americans to live healthy and productive lives. Council for a Strong America’s 8,000 leaders from the business, sports, military, religious, and law enforcement sectors support federal policies that lead to stronger families and communities, a more competitive economy, and improved national security. Our federal work centers on policies ranging from voluntary home visiting for at-risk families, to high-quality early care and education, to healthy school foods, to juvenile justice reform.
