We are excited about the caliber of pro-family leaders who will be coming and sharing their expertise. You can fill out an application to participate at

At the Summit you will learn from experts how to defend the family and how to address sensitive issues in pro-active and positive ways, whether it be in public policy, in conversations, or even at home.  

Learn about the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals and how to protect the family from hidden threats.  

Learn how to protect children from pornography and harmful sexuality education programs designed to sexualize your children.  

We know you won’t regret participating in both of these important events, so hurry and register, especially for the WCF, as we do not know how long the half price offer will be valid! 






Family Rights Leadership Summit in Conjunction with WCF IX
