Family Policy Council


Family Policy Council

Family policy councils are often, but not always, conservative, religious, state-level organizations dedicated to the promotion of traditional family values. Many work closely with Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council. There are a number of more liberal family policy organizations that conduct similar operations to their conservative counter parts toward the promotion of rights and resources for different types of families like those formed by same-sex relationships and single parent families. The councils are usually nonprofit, nonpartisan, and volunteer-based. Some are government run. Family policy councils may conduct policy analysis, foster strategic leadership involvement, promote an informed citizenry, provide resources for families, and influence public opinion.
