The highly anticipated Family Summit and Conference is set to take place in Atlanta, Ga., on August 25-27. The three-day summit and conference will be centered on the theme, “Strong Families: The Foundation of a Great Nation” and will culminate on Sunday, Aug. 27 with a keynote address by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

Why a summit and conference on family? We are meeting over the highest point of importance (next to worshiping God), and that is the family. Without Family, we have no power and indeed, we have no future. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan stated, “We are taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that the family is the basic unit of civilization. A strong family makes a strong nation. A weak family weakens the nation.”

Attendees of the weekend event can look forward to various realistic, applicable and informative solutions-oriented workshops and presentations that can be established in our local communities without delay.

Topics will include: An Inter-Generational Conversation on Relationships; Wealth Building,; Countering the Effects & Impact of the Civil/Criminal Justice Courts on our Families; Street Violence: Prevention Starts in the Home; The Science of Business, Mating and Warfare and much more.

Special sessions will include an Interfaith Congregational prayer on Friday afternoon and dialogue on building unity among the Black, Red and Brown peoples. Attendees can also look forward to a dinner banquet on Friday evening and entertainment on Saturday evening.

This Family Summit & Conference is being hosted by Healthy Relationships Initiative, The Winning Circle, Young People in Action International, the Center for Strong Families and supported by the Nation of Islam, Justice or Else, 10,000 Fearless Men & Women Headquarters of the South, Carnival Beats, and Falah Worldwide Seminars & Training.
