TO: Giuseppe Conte, Prime Minister of Italy, Luca Zaia, President of the Veneto Region, and Manuel Scalzotto, President of the Province of Verona

The World Congress of Families is one of the world's most powerful anti-choice and anti-LGBT+ groups in the world - even dubbed a “hate group” by major human rights organisations.

This year, their annual meeting will take place in Verona, Italy, with the support of the Italian Ministry for Family and Disability, the Veneto Region, and the Province of Verona.

We urge you to not support this event and withdraw all endorsements of the World Congress of Families.

Want to find out if we win this campaign?

Because of new regulations, we can only let you know if the Italian government will stop endorsing the WCF if you sign up to receive emails from us.

So – can we email you about this and other urgent campaigns for LGBT+ rights?

Are you sure? If you choose 'Yes', we'll let you know if/when the Italian government stops endorsing the WCF. You can unsubscribe at any time. Select 'No', and we won't sign you up, but we will store your information for the petition delivery.

Update – 22 March 2019: Today, the logo of the Italian government was removed from the WCF’s website. It’s a first important victory. But the logos of regional governments are still there and increasing. Let’s keep up the pressure to make sure that all endorsements of the World Congress of Families are revoked.


Update – 12 March 2019: The Italian Government has promised that they will revoke their endorsement of the WCF. But Government logos remain on WCF’s website. Now, we need to dial up the pressure to ensure that the Government really delivers on its promise to end the endorsement of this hate group.


One of the world's most powerful anti-choice and anti-LGBT+ groups is gearing up for their annual meeting in Italy. And they have the official support of multiple institutions in the Italian government.

We can’t let this happen. Please join us in urging the Italian government to withdraw their endorsements of the World Congress of Families now.
