Held on Tuesday April 20, 2021. You can join starting at 1:00 pm Eastern but the side event will open at 1:15pm Eastern.
Beginning with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, international agreements have affirmed that the family, as the natural and fundamental group unit of society, is entitled to protection by society and the state. In recognition of this fundamental obligation under human rights law, UN member states have supported placing the family at the center of international development programming for health, women, and population policies.
The event will bring together pro-life and pro-family leaders to discuss the Geneva Consensus Declaration, its legal and policy significance, and assess the debate on the life and family issues at UN headquarters.
