  • Activist Calendar: How You Can Help Now:

    • Reform Statute Law, SB 924 and 926:
      Please phone CA Governor Jerry Brown at (916) 445-2841 to urge him to sign SB 924 and SB 926 into law. These bills will extend the civil and criminal statute of limitations to age 40. You can find out more about the bills at: www.leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billSearchClient.xhtm.
    • Vice President Biden announced a Summit gathering about civil rights and protection:
      "You cannot have a conversation about human rights and human dignity without talking about the right of every woman on this planet to be free from violence and free from fear." - Vice President Joseph Biden
      (see www.mothersoflostchildren.org).

      "This past week, I announced that we'll bring together legal experts, scholars and advocates to convene a White House Summit on Civil Rights and Equal Protection for Women because we know bias against victims of rape and sexual assault still exist in our criminal justice system - and we must make clear every victim has a basic civil right to equal protection under the law."

      This is a good time to remind him that mothers and children are still prevented from protecting their child when seeking refuge. It is human right to be free from violence and fear. Mothers and children are free from neither in the family court.

      Please write to Vice President Joe Biden or call (202) 456-1111 or email vicepresident@whitehouse.gov and copy Bea Hansen, Principal Deputy Director, Office of Violence Against Women, 145 N Street NE, Suite 10W.121, Washington DC 20530, and call (202) 307-6026 ovw.info@usdoj.gov.


      SAMPLE LETTER

      The Honorable Joseph Biden
      Vice President of the United States
      1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
      Washington DC 20500

      RE: Abused Children of Divorce are court ordered to live with their sexually abusive fathers

      Dear Vice President Biden,

      You have done so much to help women. Please help women in the crisis in family courts. Abused children of divorce are being taken away from their safe mothers and given to their sexually and physically abusive fathers. The situation is getting worse, despite our efforts.

      You said, "You cannot have a conversation about human rights and human dignity without talking about the right of every woman on this planet to be free from violence and free from fear." We do not live in fear. We live in terror. Our children do not live in fear. They live in terror. Many live in ongoing court-ordered rape and sexual assault.

      We have been demonstrating to the White House since 2010 seeking remedies for abused children of divorce. 58,000 of them are placed in the unsupervised contact or full custody of their abusers. Their suffering is horrendous and completely preventable.

      No investigation of these cases has occurred, despite our pleas. The Department of Justice has not investigated the 286 cases submitted in January 2014 by Mary Seguin, who has subsequently disappeared.

      Nothing has helped our children who live in rape camps disguised as their paternal "homes". Please come to their aid. We ask for you to order an investigation into cases in which divorce courts seem to operate like criminal cartels, deliberately placing children at risk.

      Sincerely,
      YOUR NAME

      cc: Bea Hansen, Principal Deputy Director
      Office of Violence Against Women
      145 N Street NE, Suite 10W.121,
      Washington DC 20530


    • Plea for Child Protection Investigation

      You can also contact the Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities to ask them to look into child fatalities where family (divorce) courts fail to protect the children by taking them from safe mothers and giving them to violent and abusive fathers (see www.eliminatechildabusefatalities.sites.usa.gov/contact-us) or call (202) 818-9596.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

We have joined mothers together to form a network of support; sharing knowledge, experience, ideas, efforts, resources, strength, hope, and prayers. Individually, we often feel hopeless. Collectively, with the spirit of good to guide us, we can accomplish more and more. Through our associations, we have exchanged moral support, professional resource contacts, hosted and participated in educational conferences, reform movements for family violence issues, and fundraising ideas for legal fees. For more details, you can view a list of our past annual conferences and other past events.

After the regular meeting, a new self-help Mothers Anonymous meeting is now meeting for support to mothers interested in participating.
