Lumos, an organization founded by J.K. Rowling to partner with governments, communities, families and children to transform systems that drive families apart, recently launched a social media campaign to promote the inclusion of children in families in the UN’s post-2015 development agenda.
Countries around the world are currently negotiating a new development agenda to replace the Millennium Development Goals. The new goals are leaving children living outside of family care behind. J.K. Rowling has written to the UN secretary general and other policy makers on the need to include families and children living without them in the new Sustainable Development Goals.
Representatives of the United Nations Member States will be meeting from March 23-27 to discuss the development agenda. Join the campaign for children in families by tweeting representatives with the power to initiate change.
Tweet: Don’t leave families behind in the #Post2015 agenda. No families = no sustainable development. #LeaveNoOneBehind #SDGs"
