Focus on the Family Action


Focus on the Family Action

Focus on the Family Action (sometimes just Focus Action) founded in April 2004, is an evangelical Christian 501(c)(4) non-profit organization based in the United States. The organization claims it is, "completely separate from Focus on the Family, legally," referring to the original 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by James Dobson. "It has been created by separating out of Focus on the Family those activities which constitute lobbying under the IRS code so that they can be expanded in scope."
