The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA) was founded in 1958 by Philip and Margaret Isely. WCPA sponsored the drafting and refinement of the Earth Constitution during the latter half of the 20th Century. Today, WCPA promotes its ratification by the people and nations of Earth.
WCPA is a global organizing team working in coordination with the Earth Constitution Institute (ECI), a tax-deductible non-profit based in Virginia and the Earth Federation Institute (EFI), a section 508 corporation based in New Delhi, India. It implements the vision and values of the Earth Constitution by developing the Provisional World Parliament, World Electoral Districts, and local WCPA chapters. Throughout its history, WCPA has sponsored World Parliament sessions. Together ECI, EFI and WCPA promote democratic world government through dissemination of books and educational materials and participation in international conferences, along with sessions of the Provisional World Parliament.
The Earth Federation Movement
WCPA, ECI, and EFI are a worldwide organizations working with purpose and passion for global peace, justice, freedom, and sustainability. We are widely affiliated with human rights, environmental, and peace organizations. We are dedicated to the Earth Federation Movement and committed to shifting the paradigm and transforming our planetary future.
Today, WCPA is no longer a mere “membership” organization. We work with the World Service Authority to register “Global Citizens” within specific World Electoral and Administrative Districts (WEADs) and develop secure on-line voting for them, ultimately making possible voting for representatives in the House of Peoples for every adult person on Earth. Both leaders and registrants of WCPA actively contribute to building a democratic world government. We are not content with mere theories and ideals, and we cannot wait for existing governments and international institutions to take action. Therefore, we are showing the way forward ourselves through the power of grassroots organization of the agencies called for by the Earth Constitution.
