The NGO Committee on the Family would like to thank all those who participated in the last two meetings.  Due to social distancing guidelines, we moved to a webinar format. However, that enabled us to archive the meetings on our newly created YouTube Channel! You can also click through for the embedded videos.

Please enjoy the presentations, and we hope that we will be able to meet again in the Fall.
