The European Federation of Catholic Family Associations (FAFCE) recently announced its EU-wide campaign in the lead-up to the European elections of 23-26 May. The campaign, ‘Vote for Family’, seeks “more family-responsive policies within the framework of the EU competences,” according to FAFCE’s Vice-President, Vincenzo Bassi.

The campaign centres on a pro-family manifesto which candidates to the EU Parliament will be invited to sign. The names of all signatories shall be published on 15 May, which is the International Day of the Family, according to a recent press release from FAFCE. It further elaborates:

The Manifesto includes 10 points and touches all the areas of major concern for family associations in Europe during the last years. Like in 2014 and in the ongoing legislative period, after the elections elected candidates who signed the manifesto will be contacted, both at the national and European level, to support their commitments to family friendly policies and offer concrete proposals on what they can do as Members of the European Parliament.
