Roundtable: Pro-Family and Pro-Life Victories at the United Nations

Thursday afternoon’s roundtable was occupied by four accomplished women: Sharon Slater from Family Watch International; Lynn Walsh, director of Marriage and Family Peace Initiative and Co-Chair UN NGO Committee on the Family; Theresa Okafor from the Foundation for African Cultural Heritage in Nigeria; and Susan Yoshihara from the Center for Family & Human Rights (C-Fam). Austin Ruse, president of C-Fam, was the moderator.

In this open discussion, these women taught us about what happens at the United Nations. They explained the process of implementing treaties and informed us about the manipulation that happens at the UN. They provided insight into why the UN and what happens there matters, and they gave us encouragement that the pro-family movement is “winning battles” at the UN. We can continue to promote positive values at the UN if we just get involved!
