FVSAI on a successful Conference last month! UFJ
would like to express it's appreciation for the attention the
Conference called to the pending California Supreme Court
Clarke vs Cowles case.
CONTRATULATIONS ALSO TO KATHY
KRAUS AND REACH COUNSELING SERVICES in Mensha, Wisc.
Kathy won the drawing at the 7th International Conference on
Domestic Violence for a videotape of "Small
Justice" , the award winning documentary produced by
Garland Waller of Boston University. Kathy and Reach
Counseling have wonderful plans to share their prize by
showing the film broadly . The film was made available
for the drawing courtesy of Garland Waller and Intermedia,
Justice" can be
purchased at Intermedia.
We believe that it successfully conveys the complexity and
heinous nature of the issue of domestic violence
extending to the family courts.
AND MUCH ADULATION...
REGAN AND THE FOX NEWS
CHANNEL FOR THE EXTREMELY WELL-DONE STORY ON MOTHERS LOSING CUSTODY TO
This past weekend, "Judith Regan Tonight" featured Garland
Waller, filmmaker ("Small
Charles and Diane Hofheimer of the Hofheimer Law Firm (women's
and children's advocates). A very powerful and moving story. We
encourage others to let Ms. Reagan know how pervasive and severe this problem is
TAKE A MOMENT TO
write Ms. Regan
a note to tell her your story and to say "THANK YOU,
JUDITH, from our hearts."
WEAR A BLUE
RIBBON FOR JUSTICE
UFJ launched what we hope will become nationwide recognition for justice in
family law courts by wearing blue ribbons with a tiny rhinestone symbolizing a
beacon of light to Idelle Clarke's appeal court hearing on June 26, 2017. As in the cases of the red ribbon to support AIDS victims and the pink ribbon
to support breast cancer victims, we believe that identifying ourselves and our
supporters will help raise awareness of the need for court reform. The UFJ ribbon is easy to make; use 5-6 inches of medium blue ribbon crossed
over itself with a rhinestone glued in place and a safety pin on the back.
A rhinestone pierced earring can also be used to hold the ribbon together and to
secure it to clothing.
OUR VOICES ARE BEING
CNN ran repeatedly all day June 26, 2017 the coverage initially
shown on June 25, 2017 afternoon and evening news by
KCAL9-TV. KCAL9 TV previously ran a three night series
entitled "Crimes of Custody" which focused upon the
problems in family law court in California.
BEST KIND OF NEWS! An inspiring
story from a non-custodial
parent who was recently reunited with her
after a 6.5 year legal struggle.
