About the Show
Phyllis Schlafly Eagles’ mission is to promote the legacy of Phyllis Schlafly, and educate and motivate grassroots conservatives to fight for these public policy issues. Phyllis Schlafly’s vision was to enable conservatives to participate in the process of politics and government so that America will continue to be a land of individual liberty, respect for family integrity, public and private virtue, and private enterprise.
