In what may be the first of its kind, a national parenting rights convention is being scheduled for April 15-18, 2011 in upstate New York. Following through on commitments made at a planning session held recently at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D. has offered a location not far from the site of the first national women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, New York. According to Koziol, “we’ve come a long ways since 1848, but the civil rights abuses upon parents and their children have reached intolerable extremes. State intrusions upon family privacy have led to an alarming breakdown in the productivity, health and moral fiber of an entire nation”.
Originally targeted to occur in metropolitan Philadelphia, organizers were unable to secure a suitable hotel and conference center with limited resources. The idea was first launched in November, 2010 after Mr. Koziol filed a comprehensive test case in federal district court challenging the abuses found in our domestic relations courts. Hancock Airport in Syracuse is the flight destination, nearby Turning Stone Casino provides world class entertainment, and the site hotel is a four or five hour drive from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. High speed rail service makes a stop which is walking distance to the hotel with group lodging rates at a fraction of the cost found in major cities. It promises to be an event which would impress Susan B. Anthony herself.
This long overdue convention will address parental alienation, gender discrimination, abusive child control laws and the bankrupting of mainstream parents. A primary goal is to organize a June rally in Washington D.C. A series of regularly scheduled conference calls accommodating as many as 100 participants at a time will commence on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 7 pm eastern time for momentum building purposes. The conference dial-in number is: (605) 477-3000 and the participant access code is: 561737#). In order to gauge preliminary interest in both events, please email your reservation to firstname.lastname@example.org using the word “Reservation” in the subject line (be sure to include all contact information as well as which event you’re interested in). On a separate note, Mr. Koziol will appear on a national radio program sponsored by www.syndicatednews.net in Florida this Friday at 8 P.M. The convention and related subjects will be featured in this one hour program which can be accessed directly on line. In addition, you can view a recent YNN news story on our site.
