THE LEGAL BIRTH OF NELFA
EUROPEAN NETWORK OF LGBT FAMILIES ASSOCIATIONS
Brussels, 8th of March 2012
NELFA - the Network of European LGBT Families Associations - will incorporate under Belgian law as an international non-profit association (AISBL) on March 12th, 2012. Official NELFA aisbl headquarters will be located in the Rainbow House in Brussels.
Twelve NELFA founding members from Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland will take a major step towards further consolidating NELFA’s work on behalf of LGBT families in Europe.
With 22 associations representing 14 European countries and thousands of LGBT families, NELFA works to ensure that children of LGBT families in Europe are granted the same rights as children from other families. NELFA encourages European countries to adopt legal systems and equal opportunity policies that do not discriminate against LGBT families, be it legally, financially, educationally or socially.
NELFA also works to ensure the freedom of movement of LGBT families within the European Union without their family life being compromised by entering or settling in another Member State.
NELFA promotes the exchange of information between its members and assists in creating and in developing LGBT families associations in Europe.Download - NELFA aisbl Bylaws
