State Family Policy Councils

Next Article in Series:

 
  1. Overview

Since 1988, business and community leaders from across the nation have formed state-level organizations to invest in the future of America's families. Each Family Policy Council conducts policy analysis, promotes responsible and informed citizenship, facilitates strategic leadership involvement and influences public opinion. Many of these councils also perform community and statewide work to foster a movement to affirm families.

These councils are independent entities with no corporate or financial relationship to each other or to Focus on the Family. However, they have a uniform purpose: Serving as a voice for the family and assisting advocates for family ideals who aim to recapture the moral and intellectual high ground in the public arena.
