Administrative History

The World Family Policy Center (1999-2008) was an organization designed to strengthen the family as the basic unit of society and to guide the United Nations in moral lawmaking practices.

The World Family Policy Center (WFPC) was formed as a branch of the J. Reuben Clark Law School in 1999. This organization expounded upon a speech given by Richard G. Wilkins, the WFPC's founder and only director, at a United Nations conference in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1996. The primary goals of the WFPC were designed to strengthen the family as the basic unit of society and to guide the United Nations in moral lawmaking practices. The Center was abolished in 2008.
