Summary/Abstract: The Organization of Militia Family was a pro-government group which in the initial period of its existence closely cooperated with the League of Polish Women. It was established in 1969 when the political and economic situation in Poland was difficult. Polish society didn’t accept the government’s policy and started to criticize it. Consequently, the members of the organization decided on introducing propaganda toconvince Poles that the government’s policy was right. They tried toimpose socialist ideology on Polish society. The activities of the Organization of Militia Family didn’t revolveonly around spreading socialist propaganda. Its members were involved in different kinds of philanthropic activity. The fall of communism meant the end of pro-government organizations in Poland including the Organization of Militia Family.
