Francesca founded the coalition in 2008 after realizing the need for fit parents' rights to be protected & children to be kept safe.

She is a multifaceted National Expert credentialed as a Human Rights expert and a Forensic American's with Disability Act expert. She also spear headed the first "rally for reform in Ulster County" & the "WE THE PARENTS EVENT" in Washington D.C.

She believes it is  our "GOD given right to parent & protect our own children, without government interference"-FAB.
