Federation Pro Europa Christiana
Federation Pro Europa Christiana is a TFP (Tradition, Family, Property) umbrella organisation and an EU lobby group that aims at promoting “the message of the Gospel and its morals”.
The Federation organises seminars, produces policy papers, lobbies EU institutions by delivering petitions to the European Parliament created by member organisations and takes part in meetings regarding ‘Christian heritage’. It has a key focus on youth, and seeks to influence the moral and social development of Europe with traditional ‘Christian values’ (1) and therefore condemns same-sex unions, divorce, relationships outside of marriage and abortion right.
