Demonstration against court handling of domestic violence
May 13 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Earlier this year, USA Today published an investigative series titled “Florida blames mothers when men batter them – then takes away their children”. It focused on the child welfare system of Florida, exposing a well-established practice of removing children from mothers who seek help from an abusive relationship. Families Against Court Travesties, Inc. (FACTS), being committed to educating the public on these issues, is continuing the conversation with a panel of Family Court officials and litigants, set for May 22. FACTS was created by NOW board members in 2003 and continues to observe proceedings in both Family and Dependency Courts.
To draw attention to this issue, we are having a demonstration on Thursday, May 13 at 11:45 at the Delray Beach Courthouse. Join us, wearing white tops with a Court Watch badge (available onsite if you don’t have one). If you have a stroller or baby carriage, you are welcome to bring it for the visual.
