Christian Action Network
Christian Action Network (CAN) was founded in 1990 by Martin Mawyer. Based in Lynchburg, Virginia, the group is a public advocacy and education organization based on biblical principles, values, traditions and American ideals. Its primary goals are to protect America’s religious and moral heritage through educational efforts.
CAN accomplishes its education work through direct-mail campaigns aimed at impacting public policy, along with public speaking engagements, documentary films, radio and TV interviews, books, and alliances with other organizations to impact change.
Prior to founding Christian Action Network, Mawyer was Editor-in-Chief of the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority Report, and author of Silent Shame: The Alarming Rise of Child Sexual Abuse. In 1990 Mawyer formed his own public advocacy group, often continuing to work with Falwell on joint projects and public campaigns. He has since authored three additional books, including his latest work: Twilight in America: The Untold Story of Islamic Terrorist Training Camps Inside America.
CAN has approximately 150,000 supporters, many of them regular donors to his organization. The group is incorporated as a 501(c) (3) organization, donations to which gifts are tax deductible. As required by law, CAN is operated by a Board of Directors. It has a full-time staff with several independent employees who work on behalf of CAN.
