The NGO Committee on the Family-New York welcomes our annual Graduate Student Forum on the Family. The family is the “natural and fundamental” building block of society (UDHR Art. 16(3)). As such, stable families are essential for stable communities, stable nations, and a stable world. The optimal way to promote stable families is through parent empowerment and support. Speakers will address programs that have supported parents with financial needs, from marginalized groups, and with special needs children. Current research and implications for parents, community organizations, and policymakers will be addressed.
