Group Plans Rally for Arlene’s Flowers June 12 in Pasco

Family Policy Institute plans rally for Arlene's Flowers
(Arlene’s Flowers Facebook page)

The Family Policy Institute (FPI) of Washington plans to hold a rally in Pasco to support the Richland flower shop and its owner next week.

FPI is a non-profit, non-political organization created a number of years ago to promote and recognize the sanctity and importance of the family unit. It promotes education, pro-family legislation and involving churches of all faiths and religious organizations. The group is based out of Lynnwood and has had considerable influence and involvement in several recent issues in Olympia including same-sex marriage, abortion and other legislation affecting families.

FPI quickly joined in the battle between Baronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers, and Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson after he sued Arlene’s after she declined to provide floral services for a same-sex marriage.

FPI has created “Team Arlene’s” in an effort to provide logistical, financial and other support to Stutzman.

FPI is planning a rally June 12 at 7 p.m. to provide information about the case and seek support for the floral shop owner.  It will take place at Faith Assembly Church in Pasco at 1800 North Road 72.

FPI will be seeking input and assistance from those who may want to help in the following areas:

  • Becoming a part of a public information campaign of letter writing, social media, etc. 
  • Building relationships and meeting year-round with your in-district legislators, in order to inform, educate and advocate for religious freedom. 
  • Participating in a statewide phone tree to activate calls to the Attorney General’s Office and legislators. 
  • Joining with others in a collaboration of prayer for the Arlene’s Flowers suit and Washington State Government in general, including sharing these prayer requests with others in your personal prayer networks, church prayer teams, prayer chains, community prayer groups, etc.

Additional information may be obtained by contacting FPI at 425-608-0242.
