Welcome to Family First Foundation
Welcome! My name is Steven E. Smoot, President of Family First Foundation. Our name reflects our commitment to protect the family as society’s first and foremost institution. At this critical time, Family First is making a decisive difference on two major fronts.
• Through our powerful demographic documentaries, we educate policymakers and leaders on the dire challenges posed by falling birthrates.
• Under the capable leadership of E. Douglas Clark, we work in the United Nations with ambassadors and delegates to protect the family from destructive policies.
Please take a moment to learn more about our work. Thank you for visiting!
My name is Doug Clark, Executive Director of International Relations. For the past ten years I have worked at the forefront of an amazing battle being fought in the United Nations. At stake is our most precious asset: the family.
“We are at war,” says Catherine Vierling, head of the European Forum for Human Rights and Family. In the words of Allan Carlson, President of the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society, “The natural family stands reviled and threatened in the 21st century.”
What happens at the UN on family issues profoundly affects societies around the world, including our own. We work with ambassadors, delegates, and a handful of organizations to influence the outcome of key negotiations that determine social policies worldwide.
But our efforts are privately funded, and we need your support! I invite you to help if you can. I further invite you to do what you can wherever you can in defense of family. Thank you.

Family First Foundation is a major sponsor of groundbreaking documentaries, Demographic Winter - The Decline of the Human Family and Demographic Bomb - Demography is Destiny.
Demographic Winter and Demographic Bomb
One of the most ominous dramas of modern times is quietly unfolding. Below replacement fertility rates in many countries and the decline of the natural family are leading us to a demographic "tipping point" which threatens catastrophic consequences. Sociologists, demographers, and economists around the world agree that we are headed towards a "Demographic Winter." The economic and social effects of this decline are severe and long lasting, and are already apparent in much of Europe.
Phil Longman, a Washington D.C. demographer and author of the book The Empty Cradle said: "Global decline in human birthrates is the single most powerful force affecting the fate and the future of society in the 21st century."
Two documentaries Demographic Winter-The Decline of the Human Family and Demographic Bomb-Demography is Destiny, take an academic, educational and entertaining look on the social and economic effect that below replacement fertility is having on the global economy. Demographic Winter even predicted the financial crash of 2008 and Demographic Bomb reveals how it is just the beginning. The documentary trailers can be viewed at www.demographicbomb.com.
Demographic Winter and Demographic Bomb are destined to change the dialogue and debate over what is the most pressing social issue facing society today.
