Personhood Education was among 16 organizations recommended by the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations today for special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
The 19-member Committee vets applications submitted by non-governmental organizations (NGOs), recommending general, special or roster status on the basis of such criteria as the applicant’s mandate, governance and financial regime. Organizations enjoying general and special status can attend meetings of the Council and issue statements.
ECOSOC accreditation will help Personhood Education educate the general public through an international forum regarding the civil and human rights of all human beings as full persons under the law. Accreditation will also advance our advocacy goals of extending these basic civil and unalienable human rights to human beings in the womb.
