Take action to protect children who are caught between an abusive and a protective parent.
This petition had 663 supporters
As advocates for families embroiled in Intimate Partner Violence situations, we have witnessed children caught between an abusive parent and a protective parent.
Current research shows that the legal system does not adequately protect children in this situation due to a systemic prejudice against the protective parent, especially when that parent is a woman. Because of this, police, the judicial system, and family courts often miss the realities faced by children who are forced into the control of an abusive parent. For many children, the fear and anxiety brought into their lives by this all-to-common situation is devastating, and some have lost their lives.
The signers of this petition affirm that this situation is intolerable.
