MENZ Issues: news and discussion about New Zealand men, fathers, family law, divorce, courts, protests, gender politics, and male health.

Forum of the Family 2009

Filed under: Events — Julie @ 3:44 pm Fri 21st August 2009


Last year, we had almost 200 delegates and over 60 organisations represented. This is an opportunity for pro-family pro-life pro-marriage organisations, scholars, lobby groups and individuals to come together to encourage and inspire each other, and be equipped to speak up for family issues in NZ.

The Forum on the Family is for anybody who;

  • is involved with a pro-family, pro-life, pro-marriage organisation
  • is part of a ‘public issues’ group in your local community or church
  • has made or wants to make submissions to government select committees on proposed new laws
  • writes letters to the editor and/or engage in discussion on talkback radio on family and moral issues
  • would like to be better equipped to speak up more on family issues in the public domain

Confirmed speakers are the Prime Minister John Key, Leader of the Opposition Phil Goff, Children’s Commissioner John Angus, Families Commissioner Bruce Pilbrow and many more.

New Zealand needs people like you to speak up on issues relating to the well-being of families, the role of parents and marriage, and the welfare of our children.

Make plans NOW to attend the 2009 NZ Forum on the Family .

  2. Hi Alistair,

    Are you attending?

    I don’t think you could keep me away. 😉

    Only down I feel at the moment is that International Men’s Day took second seating to other political matters.

  3. And those that wanted to do something receiving the tall poppy syndrome. There is an interesting article in the Wanganui Chronicle today for violent females. 8 people in the cells, 7 were teen age girls – and serious crime!
