Happy New Year on behalf of the NELFA Board :-). NELFA will soon send new information concerning our AGM in Helsinki from 8-10 March 2019. And save another date: Our NELFA Rainbow Families Conference weekend will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, from 10-12 May 2019 – now confirmed!
Recently, we had contact to a researcher of University of Alabama. It is Jamie Campbell Naidoo and he is working on a comprehensive overview of children’s books about rainbow families all over the world and in any language. If you have some input for him, this would be great! You might have links on your websites or your own publications… Here is his Email address: email@example.com
And besides this: NELFA will have a meeting (next week on 17th of January) with the EU Commission, team Jourová, to raise awareness of our cross-border problems and the general struggles of LGBTIQ* parents (to-be) and their children. On this occasion, we will be able to publish a first NELFA scientific report (on the Coman case), written by our individual member Alina Tryfonidou. This is, indeed, great news, at the beginning of 2019. We wish you all the best for the upcoming months. Let’s stay in touch!
