Palmetto Family is a non-profit organization located in Columbia, SC. Our vision is to transform the culture in South Carolina by promoting the values and virtues of marriage, the traditional family model, and sexual purity.
Over the years we have been involved in South Carolina’s Partial Birth Abortion Ban, the defeat of Video Poker, preserving marriage as between one man and one woman, defending religious liberties (i.e., school prayer, release time, etc.), and many other issues.
Our research and publications also promote positive change that helps make South Carolina a better place to live and raise a family. We enjoy a reputation as a clear, credible voice on cultural and policy issues affecting the family. Our research has included Father Absence: A South Carolina Crisis, South Carolina Marital Health Index, What Parents Want? SC Voters Speak Out on Sexuality Education, Beyond Safe Sex: A Physician’s Prescription for Adolescent Health, and South Carolina Cultural Indicators.
