The Future of Eagle Forum

  1. What is Eagle Forum?

The better question is “who” is Eagle Forum. Eagle Forum is not its board of directors.  Eagle Forum is not its bylaws. Eagle Forum is not even its founder, Phyllis Schlafly.  Eagle Forum is members and supporters; its “Eagles” as Phyllis affectionately called us. Eagle Forum is a grassroots movement; the lifeblood is its countless volunteers and supporters who, on a daily basis, embody and advocate for the mission of Eagle Forum, which Phyllis envisioned.

To answer this question, we also need to say who Eagle Forum is not. Eagle Forum is not its former directors and officers who are now attempting to use the name Phyllis Schlafly and fundraise in her name. One such organization — Phyllis Schlafly’s American Eagles (sometimes confusingly referred to as “PS Eagles,” “Phyllis’s Eagles” or “Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagles”) — was only created in May of 2016 and has no influence, infrastructure, or name recognition.

The name “Eagle Forum” is valuable because elected officials know that countless Eagles stand behind it; Eagle Forum means business to leaders in Washington D.C. It means business in state capitols around the country thanks to individual state leaders’ hard work and faithfulness. Eagle Forum means respectability to other conservative and pro-family groups. Another rogue organization — Eagle Trust Fund — is a bank account run by Phyllis’s sons John Schlafly and Bruce Schlafly. Eagle Trust Fund is not transparent. Eagle Trust Fund has no membership, no name recognition and, most importantly, no accountability.  [Eagle Forum and Eagle Trust Fund Comparison chart].
