The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) "was born of a group of Catholic Americans concerned about the multiple crises shaking every aspect of American life. Founded in 1973, the American TFP was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and property."

"The first TFP was founded in Brazil in 1960 by Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira. Later, the American TFP became but one of many autonomous TFPs that now exist around the world dedicated to the same ideals and at the service of Christian Civilization. ... The American TFP's national headquarters is located in Spring Grove, York County, Pennsylvania."
