Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, makes remarks after receiving the “Cost of Discipleship” award at a Family Research Council conference in Washington, September 25, 2015.

Tonight, January 11, at 7:00 p.m. ET, Kim Davis will be recognized at Family Research Council’s State of the Family Address at FRC Headquarters, 801 G Street NW, Washington, D.C.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for refusing to act against her conscience, will be joined by her legal counsel, Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. Also in attendance will be Jason Rowland, principal of Airline High School in Bossier, Louisiana, which has been threatened with a lawsuit by secularists; Texas Pastors Hernan Castano and Charles Flowers, who have led successful efforts to defend religious liberty and protect their cities against transgendered bathrooms; and Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, which filed suit against Obamacare in 2013 for violating its conscience rights.

FRC President Tony Perkins will deliver his second annual address on the “State of the Family.” The speech is one day before President Obama delivers his annual State of the Union address.

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
