Stop Abuse Campaign Briefs Congress on crisis in family courts

Last week we briefed Congress on the crisis in the family and divorce courts of the United States. How our family courts are ensuring that children of divorce have no safe home to grow up in.

We explained why the Netherlands gave an American family, Holly Collins and her three children, asylum as refugees escaping grave danger, rather than return them to the united states.

We shared how children who report abuse by a parent, and the case is in family court, are treated differently from children who report abuse in another context. As citizens children are entitled to due process to ensure their safety. Unequal treatment of child victims is a civil inequality issue over which Congress has authority and jurisdiction.

Lastly we showed them how such inequality leads to child deaths and how Federal funding is inadvertently decreasing safety, as in the case of beltway sniper John Mohammad.

Please ask your friends to sign the petition. Congress is listening to us. This is the time to make change happen.
