Dear Friends of The Howard Center and The World Congress of Families,

As we end our current fiscal year (September 30th), we invite you to invest in our work to help families around the world. We need your prayers and your financial support to affirm and defend the natural family as the fundamental unit of society and our communities. Click Here to Donate Now.

Rather than try to convince you of the importance and effectiveness of our work, I will let our foes and friends speak on our behalf.

In Summary, What Our Opponents and Critics Say (Including Ms. Magazine, The Guardian, SIECUS, The Nation, Salon.com)

The Howard Center and its World Congress of Families project are:

• Providing the “intellectual sustenance of the pro-family movement”

• Both “reactionary” and “strangely progressive”

• An “alliance of orthodoxies” that is also full of “intellectual energy”

• Successfully battling “bigotry and prejudice” and showing a “new sophistication”

• “Savvy,” increasingly “trenchant and powerful,” exhibiting “growing luster,” and “teeming with crowds”

• Crafting “a radical realignment of religious and political interests” around the globe

• And “at the center of an emerging conservative religious and political strategy on families” with “a distinctive position on family issues”

In Summary, What Our Allies and Supporters Say (Including Focus on the Family, The Heritage Foundation, National Review, Wanderer: National Catholic Weekly, Concerned Women for America, Human Events, The Weekly Standard, First Things, Albert Mohler, Wilfred McClay, Rabbi Lapin, Gary Bauer)

The Howard Center and its World Congress of Families project are:

• “The last best hope for the salvation of the family”

• “Our most persuasive advocate for the natural family”

• Producing “the blueprint for western survival”

• “Highly regarded” and “thought provoking”

• Providing “must read” materials for “anyone concerned about the family”

• “Challenging the accepted view, confusing the court historians and enlightening the public”

• One-of-a-kind - “no other family organizations work in the country even approaches their high standards”

And so, we invite you to join with us in our work as “the most persuasive advocate for the natural family.” Help us to provide the “intellectual sustenance of the pro-family movement.” For only $70 per year, you can become a full member of the Howard Center the benefits of full membership including subscriptions to five of our regular publications including The Family In America, New Research, Religion and Society Report, The World Congress of Families Update and The Howard Center News. For every membership or donation of $70 or more, we will be pleased to send you a special signed copy of Allan Carlson’s book, “Fractured Generations: Crafting a Family Policy for 21st Century America.”

In anticipation, I thank you for your help and encouragement. Working together, we can make a positive difference for the family in America and the world.

In God’s Love,

Larry Jacobs

Vice President
