News 9/1/03: CANCELLED: Saturday's "Parental Rights Action-Rally."

AU Citizen Action Town Meeting planned Sep. 20!


To avoid confusion, this Saturday's (Sept. 6, 2003) "Parental Rights Action-Rally" has been cancelled.  To further clarify, the Jensen family  rally on Thursday (Sept. 4, 2003) at 11:00 AM at the State Capitol has NOT been cancelled.  Accountability Utah is not involved in the planning process of that rally.

Accountability Utah is calling a Citizen Action Town Meeting on Parental Rights Reform on September 20 in SLC.  All citizens who wish to take action are invited to attend.  Learn more about it.

More Families are Being Attacked

Several new DCFS abuses have developed since the Jensen family situation.  We will briefly report on the status of some of these cases at our citizen action meeting.

Citizens Must Know the Law to Reform the Law

Accountability Utah's citizen action meeting will feature free training from experienced parental rights, due process, and judicial reform activists.  The goal is to help every attendee to understand what has gone wrong in Utah and what they can do about it.  Training will include insights on how elected officials avoid accountability and effective tactics in dealing with them.

Reactive Training: What to Do When DCFS Comes Knocking!

We will also offer reactive training on what to do if DCFS attacks your family (or your neighbor's family).  What do you when they come to your door?  Who do you call for assistance?  What can decent neighbors do to help?  How can innocent people remove their name from the state child abuse registry (yes, this is a legitimate issue)?

Prepare Yourself for Action!

In preparation for Accountability Utah's citizen action meeting, read the Citizen Resolution (in .pdf format) that will be circulated to attendees.  Citizens can take the petition home, share it with their family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, and join in a state-wide educational action-campaign to restore the parental rights of Utah parents and families.
