July, 2015 - Our America Initiative seeks legislative remedies to reduce government coercion and restore personal liberty. While ostensibly formed to reunite families, by its own admission the Office of Children’s Services (OCS) and family court system more often have terminated parental rights, separating kids for permanent adoption away from families. Although there is a Citizen’s Review Panel (CRP) to check bureaucrat abuse, CRP members have not questioned why the OCS has failed to attain its goals. Our friends at the Grandparents and Parents of the Mat-Su have collected a sheer volume of complaints over court abuse, and these ordinary citizens, case workers, professional staff working within the courts, whistleblowers, and others require a place to lodge concerns without fear of retribution from the accused. We urge supporters to email their state representatives and senators to introduce and pass a bill to authorize an investigation to accept testimony from whistleblowers in the family court system, Office of Children’s Services, and related governmental institutions and contractors, and offer recommendations for both criminal investigation and legislative reform. With your donation now and input from our Advisory Council on Civil Liberties, we can support grassroots reforms of corrupt bureaucracies through more of our fifty state affiliates.
