Why I March

Why I March for Change was a recent event on facebook asking for Mothers to share their stories. Some of our Mothers have been actively lobbying for many years and we are so grateful to Linda Marie for sharing her experience.

Why I March….from Linda Marie Sacks Daytona Beach, Florida

linda marie sachs

“I March to keep my promise to my daughter’s. In 2007, they said “Mommy fight for us and do something every day to get us back and don’t ever stop”.  I March as one Mother, but I stand for the thousands and thousands of Mothers who have lost custody of their children, unjustly through the failure of the family court and “official avenues” who have failed to protect them. I March to let the world know that in America we have a national crisis. In the last 20 years, over 1 million children have been court ordered to unsupervised contact with a physically or sexually abusive parent following a divorce in the United States. I March to speak for my daughters and all of America’s children who named and identified their named perpetrator, only to be called a liar by the family court judge, given a false diagnosis by the Court Evaluator to dismiss, ignore and suppress credible evidence of abuse and then place the children in the physical custody of the abusive parent. I March to let the world know that the safe, “Protective Parent” has all rights terminated, or is placed on supervised visitation without a case plan or reunification plan for years and years. I March to let the world know that the Child Protective Services does not protect children, but the protection is for the perpetrator. I March to tell the world that and batterers and molesters are getting custody of our children. I March so that one day we will have Congressional hearings. I March to keep my promise to my children and all of America’s children, that I will always do something every day to speak up for this injustice and one day justice will prevail for all of our children.”

58,000 children a year are losing their safe loving mothers

kelly rutherford and her children

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this article Kelly Rutherford tells her story which is not much different than the 58,000 children a year who lose contact with their safe loving mothers. A story that effects the movie stars, the nurses, the kindergarten teachers. Kelly is now leading the charge in the development of a new ‘Children’s Justice Campaign’ a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising social consciousness as to the breadth and scope of iniquities committed against innocent children by the U.S. family court system. Through a massive media campaign, the CJC seeks to educate the general public about the health and safety risks to children exposed to current family court practices, using statistics, scientific research, and victim testimony. “Our mission is to inspire fellow American’s to take action, demanding transparency and accountability within our courts, and ultimately creating new standards of practice that will honor the needs of a child by making their physical and emotional well being the top priority in divorce and custody litigation.”

In the Sweden with love article, Rutherford was asked about her Family Court Case: Two years ago in a U.S. family court, your children were technically deported to a foreign country. What happened?

Kelly: The day the final ruling came down, there was two choices for the judge. The first one was for the kids to stay in the country in which they were born and had lived all their lives, to stay in their schools and to stay with their primary caretaker which was their mother. My daughter was two years old at the time and my son was five, so it was very traumatic for them. I offered to take them to see their father every single holiday and all summer. I wanted them to see him a lot until he had figured out his visa situation. That was a big deal at the time, because the kids had never spent more than two nights at a time away from me. The other option was to take the kids out of school, away from their mother, away from their country, and plop them into a brand-new school, a brand-new environment and a brand-new country which no one had any connection to. I had 50/50 custody, but I would have it in a foreign country. So I’ve spent two years flying to see my children and trying to find a hotel or a place for us to spend time together as a family.

Send a mother to Washington

American Mother lost CustodyWhy I march with Mothers of Lost Children,

When I lost custody of my little girl after she told her teacher that her father was hurting her. I was devastated.  I am a kindergarten teacher and have been working to protect children all my life.  No evidence mattered in this family law case only the perverse legal strategies would prevail, violating my civil rights and the right to protect my child.

I too am a mandated reporter, when my daughter reported abuse it was my duty to file a report and my responsibility as a parent to provide safety. The court ignored the evidence of abuse and witness statements giving custody to the identified perpetrator, the school folded under the bullies threats of litigation and I was fired.  I fight now for whistle blower protection and the rights of children in family and dependency court proceedings.

Each year I return to Washington DC with Mothers from across the Nation to demand Justice.  Our courts have violated our rights and its time that we hold a federal oversight hearing on the abuses in family and dependency courts; where evidence is ignored and perpetrators not victims are helped by lawyers and court orders with perverse incentives to leave children in dangerous homes being the new norm.

Mothers of Lost Children have been joined by women from all walks of life; nurses, lawyers, teachers, homemakers, and movie stars.  Nurturing mothers who lost custody to the bully.  Children are losing their mothers because men who don’t want to share custody, pay child support or have abused their children and are being rewarded/protected by a system that disregards the needs of children.  Our tax dollars are funding a governmental agency that is guilty of trafficking victims of abuse.

Sadly, our numbers are increasing every year.   It is my dream that together we will bring these children home and prevent this tragedy from continuing.  We are part of a national movement to prevent abuse if you would like to participate there are several small things that you can do to help. Writing letters to your representatives is still a very effective way to send this message.  We are asking the Federal government to hold oversight hearings on the civil and human rights violations of our children.  We want oversight and Financial Audits on the Funds that fuel the war on women and children.  We are asking for the protection of physical, emotional and sexual safety of children being our highest priority in family and dependency courts.  

We believe that a safe childhood is endangered and want the Surgeon General to declare the effects of adverse childhood experiences, dangerous to the health and welfare of our citizens and our nation.

April Fool’s Day Protests in Solano County California

 fool of courtOne year ago protests began in Solano County, California protesting the removal of three children from their protective mother Jennifer Green.  Jennifer and her children were victims of violence seeking justice with the courts.  What has become a rude awakening and not such a joking matter this April Fools Day are the Dangerous and Bias decisions being made in cases like Jennifer Greens everyday in courts across our nation.
The Reporter a Vacaville Newspaper attended one such protest, reporting-
       Protesters claim bias by both judges (Healy and Unger) and abuses of power that have threatened the safety of children in custody matters.“We have a couple of very dangerous judges here,” said Melissa Barnett, a Sonoma County resident who advocates on behalf of the litigants.

Barnett said the group was mobilized under the Mothers of Lost Children, a social and political campaign whose goal is to support mothers who have been separated from their children by courts and to bring awareness to instances where children have reported abuse yet remain in the custody of or unsupervised visitation with their identified perpetrators.

“All that these litigants are asking for is neutrality,” Barnett said.

“Victims’ rights is really what we’re fighting for,” she added.

Last year, Healy became the focus of a group litigants who alleged that, as a family law judge, he violated their civil and constitutional rights, among other claims.

The main proponent of a recall effort against Healy, Jennifer Green, was present on Friday, asking people to sign her petition.

The Benicia resident says she needs to gather 12,000 signatures by Aug. 1 to get the recall effort on a ballot.

“Before all of this, I never protested once in my life,” Green said, adding that she’s collected about 2,000 signatures in the past few weeks.

solano county protest
Mothers from every state are reporting that with evidence of abuse Judges are giving custody to the known perpetrators. In Jennifer Greens case there was evidence of abuse, forensic interviews and Domestic Violence. The father was placed on the Sexual Abuse Index, he has felony drug charges, and eventually let go of the girls after two Judges from Solano County California protected them from further abuse. It was Judge Healy without moving papers who brought the case into his court and ordered unsupervised visitation for the pedophile father. We need a District Attorney’s who will prosecute criminals not protective mothers and new Judges that will uphold the law and protect the citizens and victims of crime. 58,000 Children a year are being court ordered to live with their rapists,http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/med/PR3.html. This is a crime against humanity and we must work together and fight a system that rewards the bullies and the lawyers who represent them for financial incentives. Our system will continue to reward greedy people as long as we incentivize abuse of the justice system. We must pass SOL’s in California and increase accountability of Judges. Lets Recall Healy and make history!

Pier Morgan interview on CNN with Kelly Rutherford and Cindy McCain

A repost from Patrice Lenowitz from The Nurtured Parent Support Group:

Good morning friends!

In an interview on CNN with Piers Morgan to celebrate International Women’s day, Kelly Rutherford and Cindy McCain talked about the importance of the United Nations Women for Peace March in March to END violence against women and girls worldwide.  I am thrilled to report that Kelly Rutherford addressed specifically the harm caused to women and children within America’s family court system.

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/03/07/pmt-cindy-mccain-keely-rutherford.cnn.html

Having this type of continued publicity will be a life saving game changer for countless women and children in the U.S., and undoubtably, around the world.  I am grateful to Kelly for being so brave and determined to protect our most precious resource, our children.

Kelly Rutherford at The United Nations Women for Peace March March 7, 2014

holiday-travel-tips-new-york-ny-United-nations-headquarters-UN-HQ-buildingKelly Rutherford an actress and activist for women and children’s rights will be attending a march at the United Nations today.  Ms Rutherford will also be interviewed by Piers Morgan (CNN) tonight to discuss the United Nations Women for peace March to stop violence against women and girls. She and Cindy McCain touched on the state of our family court system–gender–Bias, tune in tonight.

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/03/07/pmt-cindy-mccain-keely-rutherford.cnn.html

“The United Nations Women for Peace March a celebration of International Women’s Day is extremely important to me, not just because I find violence against woman and girls unacceptable, but I recognize any form of oppression, injustice or violence to be a profound human rights violation that needs our attention and active participation to eradicate. With incredible heart and determination, the UN Women for Peace helps to raise awareness, has implemented programs for positive change”

Through the work of the United Nations Women for Peace, we are called upon to actively challenge the deeply rooted underpinnings of violence against women. And in doing so, we must no longer support the status quo. Our silence on these issues can be deadly.

“As a woman living in the United States, I recognize that I am afforded many freedoms that women around the world are not. I have a right to safety, and I have the luxury of perusing an education and career path of my choice. It was my dream to become an actor. And I am so grateful to have had many opportunities to assist me in accomplishing it. Hands down however, my greatest and most fulfilling role has been that of a mother. Nothing compares to the profound love and sacred bond between a mother and child. But in spite of all the progress and advances we have made towards equality in my country, my children have been ripped from my arms, effectively exiled by a family court judge who forced them to move to France to accommodate their biological father who was deported and is forbidden to re-enter the United States. ”

“My children, two American-born toddlers, ages two and five years old at the time, did nothing wrong and did not deserve the punishment of being separated from their mother, much less banishment from their own county. In spite of all the progress we have made here in the states, this scenario is a clear example of the underpinnings of a patriarchal society.”

Mothers of Lost Children is grateful to Ms. Rutherford’s advocacy on behalf of Women and Children in America.  To read more.
