In the somber spirit of the U.S. suffragettes, the Argentine Mothers of the Disappeared, the Turkish Saturday Mothers, the German Rose Street Women, and most recently, the Liberian women who stopped a civil war, we are gathering at the White House to ask our President to meet with our delegates and to help stop the systematic removal and oppression of our children by family court.
Peaceful silent vigil at the White House in Washington DC Sunday May 9, 2010 from 11:00 am until at least 2:00 pm.
We will meet at 11:00 am in Lafayette Park, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Washington DC, in front of the White House
We will bring white ‘Mothers of Lost Children’ t-shirts, white scarves and handouts. Be sure to bring water bottles, power bars, suntan lotion, dark glasses, umbrella. Reserve hotels soon (unless you travel by night on a bus and don’t stay in DC).
A few suggestions for poster board signs to bring with you to hold:
Children are taken from safe mothers and forced to live with abusers. Why?
I gave birth to a beloved daughter: Her batterer has custody.
I gave birth to a cherished son: His identified molester has custody.
I gave birth to three precious children: Our violator has custody.
I fear judicial retaliation: What country IS this? (if a scarf is over your face)
Mr. President, please stop the children’s suffering.
We are compiling 1 page stories into a booklet. If you would like to contribute factual information and quotes, especially words from your children, send them to us. You don’t need to give any identifying information.
Also, contact us to connect with others in your region who plan to come.
Come early or stay later in the week to visit your Congress members, if you wish.
