PRI is a proud co-sponsor of this year’s World Congress of Families (III), which takes place on March 29-31, 2004, in Mexico City, Mexico.
This is the world’s largest conference of pro-family leaders and grass-roots activists, bar none. More than 2,000 family activists from over 60 nations are expected to attend. To register, or for more information, call 1-800-461-3113.
The Congress will address such timely and vital issues as: the importance of marriage and children, population control, aborting our future, media and the family, the family and globalization, the family as an effective anti-poverty agency, pro-family policies, and how religion supports the natural family.
I’ve been invited to speak about population control–the war on people–and will be presenting new information about USAID’s involvement in projects which undermine life, faith and family in Latin America.
