On April 10, 2010, various family rights and family law reform organizations including the American Coalition for Families and Children (ACFC), Parental Alienation Awareness Organization, and Sisters In Solidarity are sponsoring a rally to raise awareness of children’s need to have ongoing substantial relationships with both their parents. The rally is planned for 9am to 11am at the Judicial Center at 160 North LaSalle Street in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
The rally coincides with a meeting of the Illinois Family Law Study Committee. The purpose is in part to make the committee understand the growing outcry of broken families for fair laws that ensure children benefit from ongoing significant relationships and time with both their mothers and fathers. The problem is particularly severe for children and parents being abused by parental alienation and biased courts and government agencies which often wrongfully assist alienating parents in their quest to block children from a relationship with the other parent no matter the methods or harm involved.

Illinois is on the verge of the next chapter in Family Law. Two years ago, State Legislation established the Illinois Family Law Study Committee, whose job it is to analyze family law within our State. If you have been before the Family Court in our State, if you have lost substantial time with your children, if you have lost custody of your children, if you have been crippled by child support, if you lost a substantial portion of your estate. This is the place to be. This is the time to be there.
Just shy of 100,000 people are affected by this process every year in Illinois, whether they are affected through the Parentage Act, or through the Dissolution of Marriage Act. We come from all walks of life, from as far south as Cairo to as far north as Antioch and every point in between.
We will be hosting a rally and are requesting a broad spectrum of people affected by family law from across our State to converge and show their support. During this rally, the Family Law Study Committee will be deciding on how Custody shall work in the decades ahead. Special Interest groups have significant influence in this process, and it’s incumbent on the public at large to speak up and let them know… We Care.
