Juniors and Seniors from the Irish Institute in Mexico City, a school run by Regnum Christi, took part in United Nations meetings. They participated in the 62nd commission on the status of women at the United Nations headquarters in New York, from March 16 to 24, 2018. 

This theme of this year’s meeting was, “The empowerment of rural girls and women.” The students participated in a program called “Be Human” which built up and observed women. The young men from the Irish Institute participated by promoting a direct, decisive and prepared dialogue in official and parallel events with the different embassies, missions and official delegations of the countries members of the UN. 

This experience seeks to counterbalance the errors some aspects of feminism have made, provide solid arguments in the defense dialogue for life and family, give a formative experience for these young men in an international forum, and show them how to lobby and influence international organizations. 

The Young men who participated were Juan Pablo Girault, Joaquín García-Margain, Alberto G. Said Ramos, Ricardo Piñeirua, Carlos Barra, Marcelo Garza, Rafael Musi, Gonzalo Montiel, Andrés Ortiz, Santiago Sosa, Julio Cornejo, Juan Pablo López. They have been preparing since October 2017 with conferences and other formative experiences to understand and actively participate in international dialogue. 

Here are two testimonies from participating students: 

“My representation in the UN means that I can make a difference in something important and it gives me the opportunity to defend what I believe is right. I hope this experience will help me to improve my knowledge and better understand what is experienced internationally in terms of the rights of women and of life.” Julio Cornejo, High School Senior. 

“I want to make a difference for society that in the future can affect my children and of course a change in my way of seeing things.” Joaquín García-Margain, High School Junior.
