"Effort & Courage are not enough without Purpose & Direction."  President John F. Kennedy

Federal Civil Rights Legislation
The right of parents & children to associate is an "inalienable" right.

Declaration of Family Rights


Our Goal

A child has a right to be with their parents, a parent has a right to be with their child. As one of our most important Civil rights -- it should not depend on what State you live in or a local law:

First steps: Introduction of the Family Right's Act into Congress,
Congressional Hearings into Family Law Reform.

Rob a 6 pack from a convenience store and you get: a lawyer, speedy trial, presumption of innocence, strict rules of evidence, and a Jury which must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. Don't  parents & children deserve the same standard before they're separated for months/years?

Each state has its own procedures, but still required to remain within Constitutional standards. There has been an explosion in well intentioned Family Law, but without the firm guidance of our Constitution. The words "best interest of the child" are used to justify any action.

WE ARE NOT calling for MORE FEDERAL INTERFERENCE, but less. The recognition of established constitutional protections to protect families. We only ask the same principles used to protect liberty, also protect the bond between parents and children (probably an even more valued freedom):

There ought to be a "significant barrier" the system has to cross before they can interfere with our family life.  What is the foundation to justify such a strong statement, read an essay on Family Rights.

Our Approach

Non Violent Action
"I came to see for the first time that the Christian doctrine of love, operating through the Gandhian method of nonviolence, is one of the most potent weapons available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom."(Martin Luther King)

The key to our success is a non-violent approach based on Non Violent Action. Please follow the link and read about a very positive approach! We are not loud, rude, or vindictive.  We treat everyone with kindness and respect -- especially people with whom we disagree (which includes the other parent, lawyers, and other officials in the "system").

We have held up the ideal that people willing to demonstrate: Faith, Love, and Personal Sacrifice can be the means of effective social change. More specifically, that Parents can promote Family Law reform by demonstrating: 

1) Faith in a loving God, 

2) Love for their children, former spouses, and other "brothers and sisters", and 

3) Willingness to make Personal Sacrifice, 

NonViolent Action allows you to demonstrate through "unambiguous physical action" the depth of your Faith and belief in your "cause." It is a positive demonstration of love given at sometimes tremendous personal cost.

We will all have to answer these questions of implementation. But let's not put the "cart before the horse". A child has a right to be with their parents, the same way that a woman has a right to vote, and a slave has the right to be free. In the past folks argued against women voting, or freedom for slaves, by talking about the "dire consequences".

Membership in Kid's Right is free, there are no annual dues, and we are not a non-profit organization (primarily because we want to be free to pursue direct political/legal action when necessary).

If what you read here "makes sense", we welcome your help! Please contact us and join our mailing list. We also need folks to help manage the web site and both to prepare and submit material. If you have a computer you can use, you qualify -- we are happy to train you with the skills involved to produce web pages. The web site is under development and we are still getting organized. Our goals is to subdivide responsibility for different sections of the site to sub-webmasters throughout the country.
