The Beverly LaHaye Institute (BLI) was founded in May 1999 as the “think tank” for Concerned Women for America in order to counter the prevailing ideologies and agendas of radical leftists and secular humanists. BLI provides sound research, analysis, and commentary to help preserve and strengthen traditional marriage and the natural family, to celebrate the value of life, and to undergird the Judeo-Christian foundation of American culture.
BLI also reports on American cultural and demographic trends to inform and educate policymakers and opinion leaders, the media, and the general public. The Institute is at the forefront of the international battle to preserve marriage, strengthen the family, and fight for life. BLI is also at the forefront in international policy efforts to combat human trafficking — the scourge known as “modern-day slavery.”
