MULTIPLY YOUR POWER

 

I Always Wondered Why Somebody Didn’t Do Something About That,
Then I Realized … I Am Somebody!

 

EMPOWERING SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE

 

You are not alone, and you are not crazy.
You have value. You have purpose. You have rights.

Join us at a Nurtured Parent Support Group meeting
where your healing and conscious awakening can begin!

 

STATE IT!

The Nurtured Parent’s mission is simple: PROTECTING CHILDREN. EDUCATING THE PUBLIC. EMPOWERING SURVIVORS. While our spoken mission may be simple, the task at hand is very difficult. Despite the obstacles our vision remains clear, ensuring the protection of the rights, safety, health and well-being of our nation’s women and children.

SPEAK IT!

FAMILY COURT IS A $50 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY. Domestic violence and sexual abuse perpetrators are winning joint and even sole custody of the children they harm. Safe, loving, care-giving parents are prevented from protecting their children by family court and child protective services, and they are being punished for attempting to do so.

SHARE IT!

Help raise awareness about domestic violence and court-ordered abuse by liking and sharing our website via social media! The most valuable way to “spread the word” is talk about it, make it viral and let the public know what is happening. The Nurtured Parent can be found on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

SHOW IT!

The Nurtured Parent would not be possible without the generous support of people like you. By making a DONATION TODAY, you will immediately assist those in need and further support a grassroots movement that is raising awareness about the epidemic of injustices against women and children in the family court system.

SUPPORT IT!

Together, we can turn grief and loss into something positive; BY CONTRIBUTING, WE CAN PREVENT FUTURE DEATHS. There are victims (and their children) in life-threatening situations right now whose tragic outcomes could be altered by increased preventative measures such as evaluation of high risk cases, public education, and holding abusers accountable.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The public can’t protest what it doesn’t know! DONATE TODAY and help correct our broken judicial system, assist our abused victims and fight to make our communities safe again.

FAMILY LAW IS SICK--NOT US.

For so long, we've feared being judged, misunderstood, and worse, retaliated against for speaking our truth. I've come to understand that living in that fear steals our power and disables us. We are not meant to suppress our God given talents, strength, and truth. We are mothers, life givers, and because of which, we deserve the greatest amount of respect and support.

Protective moms the world over, this is our moment.

We will no longer allow anyone to cast blame on us for the abuse we suffered with our former partners. We will no longer accept public misconceptions and "myths" about how family court is "supposed to" operate. We are the subject matter experts. We know the truth.

I believe there are good men and women out there that would be horrified to discover the deep rooted patriarchal system that maliciously undermines abused women and children in crisis as a means to maintain male entitlement--at the detriment to the safety, health and wellbeing of children and mothers. These good men and women are waiting in the wings to help us.

It's time to bring the family law system to it's knees.

The 13th Annual Battered Mothers Custody Conference will be taking place May 4-6th in Albany New York. Whether or not you can attend, I encourage you to reach out to your community leaders with an invitation.

Women's clubs; Religious leaders planning their annual cause; ACE education prevention organizations; pediatric health organizations; local newspapers, reporters, and radio stations; and all grassroots organizations that strive to better humanity.

Personally invite them.

In addition to the incredibly dedicated professionals and survivors that will be presenting, on Friday night, Rachel Meyrick’s documentary, WHAT DOESN'T KILL ME will be premiered. This is essential for the world to digest.

For those that enjoy the performing arts, on Saturday night FORBIDDEN TO PROTECT will premier at 7:30PM. You'll hear the heartrending stories of injustice by family courts across the United States. My colleague Lundy Bancroft and I crafted their words into an unforgettable stage show. The public will find these stories hard to believe, but it's our job to speak up and let the world know--these are just typical examples.

The public can't protest what it doesn't now--so let's tell them!
