WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, will be in Verona, Italy March 29 - 31 to speak at the World Congress of Families XIII. The World Congress of Families XIII will gather advocates of pro-family policies and allied organizations from around the globe to discuss marriage, family, growth and demographic decline, women’s dignity and health, defense of life and family, and policies promoting birth rates and families. On Friday, March 29, Peter will discuss the findings of his latest paper, “Evidence Shows Sexual Orientation Can Change: Debunking the Myth of ‘Immutability.’”

Sprigg made the following comments on his upcoming trip to Italy:

"I'm excited to be able to speak at this year's World Congress of Families in Verona. This opportunity for pro-family, pro-freedom policy makers to gather from around the world enables us to better work together to positively impact society in our various countries.

“I look forward to contributing to this discussion by highlighting the evidence regarding sexual orientation that prompts us to ‘abandon the immutability argument once and for all,’ as one scholar put it. This paper showcases the type of work that Family Research Council is doing to advance our values in the United States - where we are working with the Trump administration and other allies," concluded Sprigg.
