VISION: I would like to introduce myself, my name is Francesca Amato-Banfield. I started this coalition in
April 2014 - initially I was given the position of Chapter Leader for Ulster County NY by Victoria Gribbin
founder of Tri-State coalition for Family court reform NY-but the need was so great and the calls came in so
frequently I realized we needed National attention to fight & reform. So I started this work.
We are always seeking advocates to start chapters in every county in every state in the USA. Parents rights
are attacked and children are suffering needlessly because of judicial negligence. Through my own
personal experience at family court, I saw how poorly the family courts and child protective services are
being run. I decided to try to make a difference. I worked with countless victims of domestic violence, I
watch daily how children are actually placed at risk and good and fit parents are abused and re-victimized
by Judges and child Attorneys. I work with advocates, whistle blowers, domestic violence experts,
therapists, legislatures, law enforcement, crime victims specialists both locally & across the Nation.
