LDS Charities: Fortifying Families Webinar Series – 29 September 2020 – 15 May 2021

International Organizations and the Family: An Overview

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, represented by
Latter- day Saint Charities in New York and Geneva, and the European Union & International Affairs Office in Brussels, is pleased to invite you to join us for the “Fortifying Families” webinar series. As the name suggests, this series will focus on what individuals and governments can do to fortify families, as well as the societal benefits of fortified families.

The initial episode, “International Organizations and the Family: An Overview” will air live on Tuesday, September 29 at 9:30 AM ET (New York) / 3:30 PM CEST (Brussels). The episode will provide an introduction to the series, and thus focus broadly on family advocacy within international organizations, including positive steps that these bodies have taken to strengthen family policy, how fortified families can help those organizations achieve their long-term goals, and some of the issues and tensions that arise when advocating for the family.

This episode is organized in partnership with the Federation of
Catholic Family Associations in Europe (FAFCE), and will run
approximately 30 minutes. We encourage active participation from the listeners. If you wish to do so, please use the “Questions & Comments” text box provided on the registration page, or during the webinar, to suggest questions for our guest speakers.

Speakers:
Vincenzo Bassi, President, Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe (FAFCE)

(DESA)

Hosts:
Francesco Di Lillo, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – European Union & International Affairs
