We are pleased to announce that Ken Blackwell, former undersecretary at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission and mayor of Cincinnati, will join FRC as Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment. In this new role, Blackwell will lead our efforts in addressing education, tax reform, and family economics.

As one of the nation's leading conservative voices, Mr. Blackwell has a distinguished record of service in Ohio as both treasurer of state and secretary of state. The Wall Street Journal has compared his policies and principles to those of Ronald Reagan. In the battle for family, faith, and freedom, we can think of no better teammate than Ken Blackwell whose unwavering commitment to conservative policies has advanced both family enterprise and family strength.
