Calvetta Williams started this petition to DHS

My Name is Calvetta Williams and most know I was charged with Child Endangerment causing injury back in August 2017. Always maintained my innocence and fought to have my day in a court of law for almost two years, Through the process I lost my children for 4 months, which I wasn't allowed to see, speak, or even text them. I missed some precious moments in their lives like first day of kindergarten, all three of my children's birthdays, a few holidays. I wasn't allowed to be around any kids under the age 18 including my 7 grandchildren. I lost my Job, house and car and went broke trying to pay for lawyers all while fighting to just have a day in court. They say you are innocent until proven guilty but that wasn't the case, I received death threats, and face plastered on the News as a monster. On March 1, 2019 after this long journey of losing everything I was found Not- Guilty by the State of Iowa Jurisdiction System. After the long battle I thought my life could go back to a little normal even though I knew it would never be the same. But unfortunately my fight was far from over. When I was charged , my name was also placed on a child abuse registry by the Department Human Services. Thought when I cleared my name they would take my name off, but they did not, even though I was found not guilty of all charges I am still being punished for something I did not do. My name will stay on the registry for 5 years if I am unsuccessful at getting them to remove it. I wrote them letters and gave them my acquittal papers and still they do not wish to remove me. So I am asking my community to stand with me and help me fight to  get them to remove my name. This happens all the time here in Iowa and a lot of Parents feel overwhelmed and tired so they give up and their name is placed on this registry. I am one of those Mothers who is tired but I refuse to give up, Children and Families have always been my Passion and my livelihood and I know I am not who they portrayed me to be for these past two years. I have been a major help to my community in the past years until I was stripped of everything. I would like to continue to help but if my name is not removed then I am prevented from doing anything. So as I stand with my community I am asking my community to stand with me and ask them to have my name removed from this list so I can pick up the pieces of what they broke in my life from the allegations and charges and start rebuilding and moving forward. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, I appreciate you all. PLEASE SIGN and SHARE.
