Peaceful silent vigil at the White House in Washington DC
Sunday May 9, 2010 from 11:00 am until at least 3:00 pm.
Mothers of Lost Children and our supporters are gathering at Lafayette Park, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Washington DC in front of the White House at 11:00 am for a silent vigil to protest the grotesque human rights abuses against children by family courts. We will have a Proclamation asking the President to help stop the systematic removal and oppression of our children by family court.
Be sure to bring water bottles, snacks, suntan lotion, dark glasses, umbrella, pen/paper, cameras. Reserve hotels soon (unless you travel by night on a bus and won’t stay in DC).
You may also consider bringing a sign or banner. Some Suggestions:
* I Believe My Children, Family Court Doesn’t
* SO How Are The Children?
* We Demand Family Court Reform
* Mr. President, Where is the Change?
* Blue Ribbon, Prevent Child Abuse
* You could also blow up/copy a picture or drawing your child made depicting abuse OR Images/Pictures of Abuse
Come early or stay later in the week to visit your Congress members, if you wish. Just find the name and make an appointment with him/her, or his/her staffer. IF YOU CAN’T ATTEND, PLEASE E-MAIL, FAX OR SEND YOUR REPRESENTATIVE A LETTER OF SUPPORT for the Silent Vigil & Proclomation, and telling your story:
The US Senate page was down when I looked, please check back to find out how to contact your senator.

UPDATE FROM CA Protective Parents Association
Dear Mothers of Lost Children and Supporters,
There have been an extraordinary series of events to pave the way for our vigil at the White House on Mothers Day May 9, 2010! See http://www.centerforjudicialexcellence.com.
White House vigil:
For information on our Mothers’ Day silent vigil, go to http://www.mothers-of-lost-children.com. Another mothers march is planned for May 18-20, serendipitiously a week and a half after our event. We are invited to join.
Meeting with the President:
Although we have not been successful yet in setting up a meeting with the President, we methodically fax him a request every month. Please feel free to email a request to meet with him and the First Lady: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact. Send information on your case if you wish. You can ask for a Federal investigation into the profiteering, racketeering and trafficking of children by family courts.
Mary Richmond has arranged for a bus from Albany NY to Washington DC. Travel is at night so you won’t have to pay for hotels – a brilliant move. Contact Mary at 518-331-5090 or firstname.lastname@example.org The cost of the bus ticket is $60 round trip to DC. Send a check or money order to Albany Area NOW, PO Box 13773, Albany, NY 12212. Seating is limited so reserve and pay for your seat by May 1st. The bus will leave Albany at 1 AM on Sunday morning May 9 (i.e., really late Sat night) and arrive in DC at 9:00 AM. You will board a 6 PM bus the same day for return to Albany. This bus will stop in New Jersey for anyone wants to join – Route NJ #95 at Vince Lombardi Rest Stop (Park and Ride) Ridgefield, New Jersey at approximately 3:30 am Sunday morning.
We will bring 50 white t-shirts with MOTHERS OF LOST CHILDREN on the front in black letters, plus 25 t-shirts with MOTHERS OF LOST CHILDREN SUPPORTER. It would be good to wear white pants or white skirts if you wish.We’ll bring some white scarves in case we want to wear them. The Liberian women in Pray the Devil Back to Hell wore all white…it is a symbol of peace.
What to bring:
The Metro Police told us today that we do not need a permit to march on the sidewalk as long as we do not obstruct traffic and stop at the lights, so we are planning to march down 17th Street and back in the afternoon, for those who wish to do that. Please bring only portable items, such as a waterbottle that hooks to your belt, some power bars, very comfortable shoes, wallet in pocket so you will have hands free to hold a sign or banner.
Signs and banners:
We are bringing a big banner and several 3′ x 5′ banners. Please feel free to bring poster board signs that you can carry. Pictures of your children on the signs are good. Be sure to emphasize that the children are living with a known batterer or molester, and that you are a safe, nurturing mom. Messages about civil and human rights violations and judicial retaliation are also good.
Only 2 people have sent stories. Let me know if you want your case summary in a booklet. It needs to be one page and you can use a pseudonym if you wish.
