David Walls is the Executive Director of The Family Foundation, a nonprofit organization that stands for Kentucky families and the biblical values that make them strong by advocating for God-honoring public policy in the Commonwealth.

David is a passionate advocate for public policy that reflects the truth of God’s word, including religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and biblical family values.

Prior to leading The Family Foundation, David helped found and served as Vice President of Texas Values, one of the nation’s premier state family policy councils. He also previously worked for First Liberty Institute, the nation’s largest legal organization dedicated exclusively to protecting religious liberty.

During David’s leadership at Texas Values, the organization saw tremendous growth and helped pass a major pro-life and religious freedom bill in each of the last 5 Texas Legislative Sessions, including the “Save Chick-fil-A” Religious Freedom Law, The Freedom to Serve Children Act, Texas’ Dismemberment Abortion Ban, The Freedom to Worship Act, and The Texas Heartbeat Law.

David also led the effort to launch Texas Values’ legislative action arm, Texas Values Action. In his role at Texas Values Action, he managed the organizations’ political activity and special projects, including its statewide voter guide and the creation of its Faith & Family Scorecard, the most comprehensive pro-family legislative scorecard in the state.

David received a Master’s Degree in Political Science & Legislative Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas where he was honored as an Archer Center Graduate Program in Public Policy Fellow. He also has received an MBA from the University of Texas in Arlington and received his undergraduate degree from Southern Methodist University.
