About the Team

Staff Members

Blaine Conzatti, President

Blaine Conzatti serves as the President of Idaho Family Policy Center. He has established a proven track record of achievements in the family policy movement—including successfully leading the charge to get the ‘Heartbeat’ bill, the “No Public Funds For Abortion Act,” and “Simon’s Law” enacted into Idaho law. He also directed the effort to mobilize the conservative grassroots in support of the first-in-the-nation “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” protecting girls’ high school and college sports.

When he was nineteen years old, Blaine first encountered the saving grace of Jesus Christ, and subsequently left a career as an aspiring rock and jazz musician so he could study theology, government, and economics at Liberty University. Blaine soon learned that God’s truth impacts every area of life, and he quickly developed a passion for helping Christians fulfill the cultural commission to advocate these biblical truths in the public square.

Before joining Idaho Family Policy Center, Blaine previously worked for one of our allied state organizations, Family Policy Institute of Washington. Additionally, he spent several years teaching humanities, theology, and apologetics courses at a classical Christian high school in Fairfax, VA. He and his wife, Anna, enjoy raising their family in beautiful Treasure Valley.

Titus Folks, Vice President

Titus Folks serves as the Vice President of Idaho Family Policy Center. He provides operational leadership for the team as they build an Idaho where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.

Before joining Idaho Family Policy Center, Titus worked with a pro-life organization, Students for Life Action, for almost five years. In this role, he mentored hundreds of pro-life student activists, and he played a key role in election and legislative battles across the country. He and his wife, Kris, have two children they are excited to raise in Boise, Idaho.
