The Arizona Family Project is pleased to announce its Friend of the Family award winners for 2013.

Compared to 2012, 2013 was a quieter year, and much of the good that was done was spoiled at the end of the year by a battle over Medicaid Expansion that resulting in normally pro-life legislators ignoring the concerns of the pro-life movement in order to pass a bill. Nevertheless, good bills were still passed and there were a large number of legislators who deserve recognition for their hard work.
The Arizona Family Project is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, dedicated to raising awareness of pro-family issues and increasing participation by Arizonans in advocating for and advancing pro-family positions.
