The family is the basic building block of society. The mission of the UN NGO Committee on the Family - New York is to ensure its preservation and well-being. To fulfill this mission we:

  • Advocate for the inclusion of the family within the UN system.
  • Work to ensure member states commit to the betterment of families through policy, legislation, and programs.
  • Engage in lobbying for the inclusion of the family in international resolutions and policies.
  • Promote intergenerational ties.
  • Maintain relationships with the UN Division of Social Policy and Development and the Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
  • Educate the public on international issues and policies affecting the well-being of families.
