National Union

This website is dedicated to the formation of our National Union. We endeavor to protect, promote and push for implementation of national protection for the rights of American children and families

 

What is Foster Children Parents and Parental Rights Advocates Union?

Help Us Organize Our 54 Chapters intona National Union

This National Union was created in Massachusetts in response to the formation of The Foster Parents Union which also originated in Massachusetts. More importantly, this National Union was formed in response to the nationwide disregard for the Constitutionally Protected Parental Rights of children and Families which continue to be ignored in every Family Court in every state of our nation. Every conceivable tactic has been tried to right this wrong. All have failed. The Foster Children, Parents and Parental Rights Advocates Union is the very last hope for parents and their children who are daily facing the injustices of an unfair and unconstitutional child protective services system in America.

OUR ADVERSARIES

 

Who are this Union's Adversaries?

In addition to child protective services and the local, state and federal governmental agencies which supports it our adversaries are The National Foster Parent Association and The Foster Parents Union two well organized and fully funded organizations.

How do we compete with these massive organizations and local, state and federal governmental agencies?

We members of the Foster Children, Parents and Parental Rights Advocates Union are not in this fight for money as our adversaries are. We are all joined by the shared experience of losing a beloved family member and the fight against injustice.

When will we finally be able to effect "real change" in America's foster care system?

We are on track to recruiting leadership and members in all 54 of our Union Chapters. At the same time we are pursuing our very first federal lawsuit against child protective services. Upon success we shall use the proceeds from our first won lawsuit to begin more and more lawsuits for our members. Together with our union dues and donations we WILL effect change in America's child protective services system.

OUR ADVERSARIES

The Foster Parents Union

Why WE MUST FORM 

This National Union MUST form for the sake of children and parents Nationally. Our adversaries are well financed, entrenched and enjoy the backing of local, state and national legislatures.

With our limited resources how do we hope to compete with our adversaries?

To our adversaries we are just a bunch of parents who are upset because we were deemed unfit to raise our own children. They look at us with a very confident "smirk" on their faces. One of our most important recruiting venues, Facebook, constantly deletes our pages, harass our members and block our content. We mothers and fathers, advocates and former foster children are not just upset. We are angry that those closest to us were STOLEN from us through lies manipulation and fakery of child protective services and the family courts. We will NOT stop until ALL our stolen children and returned to their loving parents.

Why Union Dues?

Union dues will allow us to assist our Union Members in their fight to reunite their families. Like our adversaries we will join with our other union chapters and build strong bonds in our communities and in our states. Unlike our adversaries though our 54 Union Chapters will have the ability to coordinate mass meetings and assemblies of our members. Funded by our members, we will purchase Union Halls in all 54 locations complete with our own fleet of buses, to transport our members safely and comfortably to different states to show our displeasure with their child protective services systems. All resources of any State Chapter are owned by the members of that State Chapter. This will allow our members to actually own a stake in all assets of this National Union.

Our Purpose For Forming A National Union

 

Our Main Objective

The Foster Children, Parents and Parental Rights Advocates Union is attempting to do what has "Never" been done before. Our ultimate goal is to not only reform the current child protective services system in America to a more just and humane system which focuses on the genuine preservation of American families, protect our vulnerable children and respect and honor the Parental Rights of American families, but to ultimately force this system to punish criminal child protective services social workers for crimes that this system has asked them to commit.

What this union believes

This National Union believes that when ou ignore injustice, you are complicent in it. We advocates of this National Union will no longer turn a blind eye to the injustices of this current child protective services system. For far too long we have witnessed the abuse, torture, degradation of children unjustly separated from their families and thrust into this unnatural, unjust and unholy substitute for a child Natural Family. For too long our government has ignored this epidemic of family separations fueled by a federal funding scheme under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act which benefits few to the detriment of many.

What has been the damage wrought by this entitlement program? 

Title lV of the Social Security Act has incentivised the taking of children from the poor and disadvantaged. Family Court does not recognize the Constitutionally Protected Parental Rights inherent in our United States Constitution. Parents without means are grossly underrepresented in ALL U.S. Family Courts. The abuses of the current system transforms Civil Rights abuses into Human Rights Abuses. These abuses have now reached epidemic proportions. The end result is more suicides, homicides, domestic violence, a decrease in worker productivity, and also the psychological, financial and physical harm done to hundreds of thousands if not millions of parents, families and children. This situation has transformed into a genuine "National Crisis".

We shall use this income to purchase Union Halls in every U.S. state and occupied territory. We shall purchase fleets of buses to transport our members safely and comfortably at every Union Chapter. We shall bring our members together in mass anywhere at anytime we desire. This and much more. Furthermore any and all assets of this National Union, are owned equally be every union member.

This National Union with a minimum membership in every one of its chapters would have a minimum of 108,000 members. That would make us by far the largest and most powerful Parental Rights Organization in this country. With 54 State and Regional Chapters any one of our presidents will have the clout to confer with their states Governor or any elected official based upon their status in this union. Each chapter will have the option of assembling and transporting as many of their members as possible to any court for support of a member or demonstration or rally for or against any elected official. It is "power" such as this that gets attention and changes actions and policies.

This union is comprised of many people. Each person here has a story to tell. The Foster Children, Parents and Parental Rights Advocates Union shall feature these stories live on air on our soon to be launched Blogtalk Radio Show "C.P.S Stories, An American Holocaust" Documentation of case may be required.

The Importance of Human Connection

This National Union does not intend on being some online advocacy group. With buildings serving as State Union Chapters in every state we will provide a setting where our members can visit. These locations shall provide a valuable resource for information concerning your rights if child protective services has come into your life. Our state chapters, led by qualified State Officers, shall have the ability to meet regularly and decide as a group how best to serve its members and address CPS injustices in their state. In matters of regional significance multiple State Chapters can converge with safe and reliable transportation and amenities provided by the Union. Operating this way, with every state organized our chances of affecting legislation Nationally in regards to Child Protective Services is, very good.

All our Members must understand that we are an active fraternal union. We are not just a collection of groups and pages representing every state and occupied U.S. territory. Nor are we just assembling our stories of injustice at the hands of an illegal child protective services system for posterity. No my friends we are an active fraternal union of victims of cps injustice who will meet their fellow members, know their fellow members and actively participate with their fellow members to assemble in large groups at any location. Our state chapters shall own assets such as buildings and buses which will be Owned by the members of that chapter. These assets will allow each chapter to act independently while at the same time in solidarity with other state chapters and our National Union. Other Union's such as the Parents Union who formed in opposition to the power of the Teacher's Union have received funding from the National Endowment of The Arts Foundation. Others have wealthy patrons and sponsors who believe completely in their cause and finance it. We do not have that luxury my friends. We must finance ourselfs. We will finance our union through union dues, sponsoring of lawsuits against county cps offices and donations which are sure to start arriving once we become more successful.
