Recently, as a direct result of 9/11 and Taber’s expertise in the women’s market, she founded The Family Security Foundation, Inc., whose web site is FamilySecurityMatters.org (FSM). FSM’s mission is to educate and inform American families about all issues related to family and national security and sovereignty. By building a more vibrant and educated electorate, her goal is to strengthen American democracy by increasing the civic spirit and political literacy of our nation’s electorate. Additionally, FSM believes that their parents’ examples will have the long-term effect of increasing civic and political involvement in American children and young adults.
After FSM’s website launch in September 2004, within one year Taber – along with FSM’s experts and executives – appeared on hundreds of media interviews for national radio and television audiences and their OpEds were read in major market newspapers around the country. Featured daily in Townhall.com, GoogleNews, Yahoo, Microsoft Network, various news organizations plus tens of other websites and blogs, the site – now authored by 50 nationally known, expert Contributing Editors – enjoys millions of hits monthly and FSM’s readers now hail from over 100 countries.
Because of FamilySecurityMatters.org, Ms. Taber was selected by the National Center for Policy Analysis’s profile of “The Woman of the Month,” an initiative of the Center’s “Women in the Economy” project that explores the choices women make and how public policies impact those decisions. The award cites the nominated woman’s unique contributions to the economy, public policy and society as a whole.
