Although we’ve all heard grumblings about one group not doing what the other group is doing, remarks about not being vocal enough, remarks about being too vocal, too rebellious, too “New Age”, too intellectual and not intellectual enough, we’re somehow moving this cause along anyway. Different approaches and the same goal seem to be somehow moving us forward at the speed of light! Yayy team!
Here’s more exciting news about the upcoming Valentine’s Day demonstration in Washington, D.C. from the California Protective Parents Association:
SAVE THE DATES: February 13 and 14, 2011.
Mothers of Lost Children will gather at the White House from 2:00 to 4:00 pm Sunday 2/13 for a vigil and speak out about family court endangerment of children. On Monday 2/14 at 11:00 am we will gather at the US Department of Human Services, 200 Independence Ave SW, Washington DC for a press conference to protest the huge expenditure on Fatherhood and the zero expenditure on Motherhood. At noon we will march to Congress to ask again for Congressional hearings. It is crucial to maintain our presence in Washington DC. We encourage all you brave and hardy souls to join us in person. Wear your warmest clothes. See http://www.mothers-of-lost-children.com/
Please consider writing letters to your 2 US Senators and your 1 Congressmember (http://www.contactingthecongress.org/) to request Congressional hearings on the failure of family courts to protect children. You can attach a 1 page summary of your case, if you wish.
The following video is from TED.com. There’s been so much need for unity in our “movement” and in our country and in our world, I’ve posted this video for your viewing pleasure. Hope you enjoy it.
See you at “the field” in Washington, D.C. on Valentine’s Day!
