The Family Chain Movement
The Family Chain Movement addresses Hungarian pro-family organizations, associations and foundations aiming at strengthening the family, respecting marriage, promoting having children, protecting the foetus from the moment of conception and supporting child protection, without racial, philosophical or religious discrimination. Our mission is to cultivate Hungarian mother tongue and culture. We consider raising awareness of our nation’s history, as well as advocacy at a Carpathian Basin level, particularly valuable. To this end, in collaboration with the Family Chain Movement member organizations, we have been collaborating with the public bodies and institutions of the countries concerned.
11th May 2012 marked the ceremonial statutory congress of the Family Chain Movement. 49 representatives from 34 organisations participated in the congress initiated by the CFAC. The event was also attended by Dr. László Kövér, President of the Hungarian Parliament, Ms Zsuzsa Répás, Assistant Secretary of State for National Policy, Ms Erika Zupcsán Asztalosné, Assistant Secretary of State for Social Policy, Dr. Csaba Latorcai, Assistant Secretary of State for Ethnic Relations and Civil Society and Ms Mónika Keresztes Rónaszékiné, President of the Population Policy Subcommitee of the Hungarian Parliament.
The congress concluded in establishing the Family Chain Movement. Several national daily papers and TV channels, as well as the written and online media of the Hungarian cross-border regions reported about the event.
On 17 April 2013, the Family Chain Movement held its first general assembly in the Parliament, which was followed by a gathering organized on the occasion of the Family Day in February 2014. In the period between the two events, the Movement realized meetings, cooperation and trainings basically for family associations working at a local level. The movement intends to facilitate an even more coordinated and well-organized cooperation in the future.
It is our obligation to intensify national awareness and to increase the sense of cohesion. Gatherings, events and trainings at local, regional or Carpathian Basin levels, as well as the adoption of Hungarian citizenship are important tools for this end. We wish to implement this goal by involving further Hungarian pro-family organizations.
