Families +SocialGood is a one-day event focused on families around the world and their health and well-being. Passionate experts and advocates will gather to share ideas and inspire action to tackle some of the world’s most critical challenges for families.
We are excited to present a special screening of award winning documentary Unseen Enemy, a film about the frontlines of the fight against infectious disease at this year’s event.
Families +SocialGood builds on the fifth year of our flagship Mom +SocialGood event in New York City. See highlights here: www.globalmomschallenge.org/families-socialgood/
What do you wish were true for every family, everywhere?

About Families +SocialGood
On the back of our 5th Mums +SocialGood event happening May 4 in New York and Dads +SocialGood also in New York on June 13, Families +SocialGood brings us to the center of London. It is a culmination of a drumbeat of action and conversation on critical issues.
Brought to you by the United Nations Foundation and Johnson & Johnson and in support of the UN Every Woman, Every Child initiative, Families +SocialGood will also conclude the Global Mums Relay, a digital storytelling and fundraising campaign. From May 3 to June 16, the Global Mums Relay celebrates the lifesaving work of Girl Up, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, UNFPA, Shot@Life and Nothing But Nets.
This movement of mothers, sisters, brothers, fathers, daughters, sons, neighbors, nurses, teachers, and friends continues to grow. There is no greater power than when families, from all backgrounds and geographies, come together for a healthier and more equal future for all.
