Chris Long, President of Ohio Christian Alliance

Chris Long is the President of Ohio Christian Alliance, a public policy, voter education organization representing Christian interests before the Ohio legislature and the U.S. Congress.  OCA has produced and distributed over 9 million voter guides for distribution to thousands of churches in all 88 counties in Ohio since 2002.  The Christian Alliance advocates for pro-life, pro-family, religious liberty, First Amendment issues.  Legislative successes over the years include the Choose Life License Plate and The Founding of America Documents Bill (S.B. 165) that requires the teaching of the Founding Documents in American History and Government courses from the 6th through 12th grade in Ohio schools. Chris is the initiator of the D-Day Landing Prayer Act, also known as the WWII Memorial Prayer Act (S 1044) that passed Congress in June of 2014 and was signed into law on June 30, 2014, legislation that will add the entire D-Day Prayer of FDR at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Chris worked alongside the Chaldean Christian Community in Ohio and Michigan as they advocated on behalf of their fellow countrymen who were facing severe persecution at the hands of ISIS in Northern Iraq.  Chris is the host of News in Focus, a weekly radio program heard throughout the State of Ohio on the Salem Network in various radio markets. He is also a regular guest on radio and television throughout Ohio and nationally.

D-Day Prayer Project and Founding of America Documents Bill in Detail:

OCA's most recent legislative effort to add FDR's D-Day Landing Prayer to the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. was initiated by Chris in collaboration with Congressman Bill Johnson (OH-6). The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 386-26 in the 112th Congress. It was then introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut with 22 co-sponsors. The WWII Memorial Prayer Act was passed by both the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent, and by the U.S. House of Representatives by a large majority, and then signed into law by the President on June 30, 2014.  It is now in the final phases of design improvement, fundraising, and awaiting a construction date.  

The Founding of America Documents Bill, enacted into law in 2012, and now having been reaffirmed in the Social Studies standard of American Government and History, will continue as a requirement in all of Ohio's 88 school districts for the next five years, with an end of course exam requirement. The legislation requires study of our nation's founding documents in all of Ohio schools, grades 6-12, including The U.S. Constitution with an emphasis on The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers, The Northwest Ordinance, and The Ohio Constitution.  OCA and Christian Alliance of America are working for the adoption of The Founding of America Documents Curriculum in other states through a national effort.

The Alliance's work in educating the values voter has garnered the interest of international publications, including the Guardian of London, the Wall Street Journal, ABC of Australia, and ABC World News Tonight.
