The NGO Committee on the Family invites you to join a conversation with two Third Committee Representatives to the UN hailing from different regions of the world. Many countries have been experiencing consequences from a weakening of the family and a family-supportive culture.

Some national legislatures have decided to prioritize the family in their policies and programs, not in contrast to individual rights but in recognition of the family’s importance for personal development and society as a whole. Our speakers will share:

  1. their experiences lobbying for the family at the
    General Assembly this past year
  2. examples of family policies in their countries and why these were prioritized

There will be an opportunity for Q&A with the audience
