Purpose - The purpose of the Council and the networking system is to facilitate
contact between people in the reform effort who share both
a common goal and methods necessary to achieve real reform. To promote a useful discussion
between members and provide an easy means of keeping up with events.
Shared Goal / Membership requirements - Anyone can register and have MONITOR status at the
web site. FULL site usage is limited to MEMBERS -- those people who share a common
goal of protecting Family Rights. All MEMBERS of the Leadership Council

If anyone (a spouse, relative, or Child Protective "services") wishes to challenge that, you have a
right to speedy trial, counsel, and the protection of a criminal jury and a unanimous verdict.

safety and acted with malintent.
A child has a right to EQUAL contact with BOTH parents.

In our discussions with ourselves and our public actions, all
should be treated with dignity, respect and compassion. We can condemn injustice without malice.
We support those who are willing to participate in NonViolent Action and risk arrest/jail in peaceful demonstrations.
We identify ourselves as 'parents' seeking reform. Our issue is family rights and the ability to
raise & nuture our own child free of government interference.
focus is NOT men's rights or women's rights or child support reform.
