Family Policy Councils (FPCs) accomplish at the state level what Family Research Council does at the national level - shape public debate and formulate public policy. FPCs work with state legislators, local government officials, and community leaders to encourage and initiate pro-family policies.
Activities of FPCs include:
- Research and policy analysis
- Promoting responsible and informed citizenship
- Providing support for decision makers
- Pro-actively shaping public opinion by communicating pro-family ideas to the media
- Leading cultural initiatives to strengthen marriage and fatherhood
- Promoting abstinence through community education programs
FPCs are independent entities with no corporate or financial relationship to each other or to Family Research Council. However, they share common core beliefs in the sanctity of human life and in the institution of marriage. Beyond that, their emphasis on issues varies from state to state, depending on the unique needs of the citizens living there.
