The conference is co-organized by Aleš Juchelka, Chairman of Permanent Commission on Family Issues, Equal Opportunities and Minorities of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, together with the registered association Aliance pro rodinu (Alliance for Family).

Mr. Juchelka began his parliamentary mandate in 2017 and is a member of the ANO 2011 parliamentary club. Thanks to his previous work experience in the media, he is the Vice-Chairman of the Electoral Committee of the Chamber of Deputies. He has been involved in family support and assistance to parents with handicapped children for a long time which is why he is also a member of the Social Policy Committee.

Aliance pro rodinu (Alliance for Family) is a registered association that was founded in the late 1990s. It aims to achieve social, cultural and legislative support and respect for family, to strengthen the economic and social autonomy of the family and thus intergenerational solidarity and the cohesion of family ties.
