Our objective is to bring attention and media to expose all types of judicial corruption by marching on the state capitol here in Sacramento. The system is purposely putting children with abusers and child molesters for profit. Please come march and support our cause to grab media attention. Please share this event and bring your friends! BREAK THE SILENCE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL ABUSE.
As many of you already know, Mother's of Lost Children and a few other organizations are marching at the Capitol in Washington D.C on Mother's Day, May 8, 2011 and on May 9, 2011. 
There are many moms here in California who would love to be there but, due to financial or other considerations, can't travel to Washington D.C. this May.  For this reason, a group of moms has decided to organize a march right here at our own CA State Capitol on May 9th.  Our mission is to bring attention to the issue of how our broken family and juvenile court systems are harming children all over our state.
So far, we are still in the planning stages but we have applied for a permit to assemble at the Capitol on May 9, 2011 from 10 am to 7 pm.  We would like to start of with a prayer and then march around the Capitol and maybe up to the appellate court.   Speaker Pro Tempore Fiona Ma has graciously agreed to speak at our event and her assistant has applied for a committee room from 3pm to 5pm that day.  We also sent a request to Assemblyman Jim Beall to speak regarding PAS and how it's use in family court harms children but haven't heard back regarding his availability.  We would also like to assemble a panel of experts: attorneys, investigators, child abuse experts, judges, domestic violence experts, psychologists, authors, etc.. to speak as well.  If you have contacts who may be willing to participate in our expert panel, please pass along their contact info.  We would also like to have a survivor's panel comprised of those of us who have survived or are currently surviving (somehow) abuse by a perpetrator of DV or child abuse AND abuse by the family or juvenile court system.  If you are a survivor and would like to participate and/or speak at our rally- Please contact me ASAP.  After the panels and speakers, I would like to have everyone assemble once again in front of the Capitol for a closing prayer and "candlelight vigil" or moment of silence.  I realize that in May, it won't really be dark enough for candlelight before 7 pm but it's the thought that counts.  Also, open flames are not allowed so we would have to use glow-sticks or battery operated devices anyway. 
We need lots of help to make this a huge success!
What we need right now:
  • Your thoughts and suggestions
  • A slogan
  • A flier
  • The support of our local non-profit organizations with anti domestic violence and anti child abuse agendas
  • Lots and lots of media attention
  • Experts for our panel
  • Survivors willing to participate in a panel and/or speak
  • Signs and banners
  • Survivors from each county and their supporters to join our march
Please contact me ASAP so that we can start to organize everything and make this a super event that will send a strong message to our lawmakers and the courts in our state!
Our goal is at least 1000 people!  Lets show our lawmakers and the public that this is a serious issue and a widespread problem!
