29 September, 2020 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+1
Fortifying Families Webinar Series
During this time of virtual engagement, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, represented by Latter-day Saint Charities in New York and Geneva, and the European Union Office in Brussels, is presenting a webinar series on issues pertaining to the family. The family is the fundamental unit of society and strong, stable and healthy families sustain strong, stable and healthy societies. This series will explore contemporary issues affecting today’s families, significant ways families provide solutions to social ills, and suggested policies to fortify families as the fundamental unit of society.
The series will be hosted through a dedicated Facebook page. Registration to live episodes will be open to all and free of charge. Each episode will be live on Zoom and live-streamed on Facebook page.
This episode will focus broadly on some of the issues and tensions that international organizations face when considering the family, as well as provide an introduction to the series. It will also highlight some of the positive steps that these bodies have taken to strengthen family policy, as well as how fortified families can help those organizations achieve their long-term goals.
