Parent March on Washington: What it’s about and why you should come on May 3rd

Dr. Leon Koziol, Director of the Parenting Rights Institute, has been lobbying Congress for an oversight hearing and the Justice Department to investigate abuses of federal funding in our nation’s divorce and family courts. He practiced civil rights law in federal and state courts for over two decades and has conceived this March as a long overdue event to get reform.

Request for Congressional Oversight Hearing and Justice Department Investigation of Widespread  Abuses of Parents in Divorce and Family Courts

Why the March?

While our federal government obsesses itself with illegal immigrants separated from their children, American parents are being separated for years, even permanently, in divorce and family courts across our country.

It is an insidious form of separation, far worse than the kind experienced by the immigrants, because children are programmed to ignore, even hate their parents, for no reason other than lawyer profits and court revenues from the federal government.

Worse yet, it is done every day without so much as a pause from the lawmakers who caused it. Parents are kept in the dark on why this is happening to them.

It is long past the time to express our outrage over this horrific injustice, and the best way of doing that is to confront those lawmakers where they least expect it, in the halls of Congress and the streets of our nation’s capital.

Welcome to the Parent March on Washington set for May 3, 2019. Parent alienation is the outcome of an antiquated child custody system which attracts billions of dollars in federal funds and a gold mine for those who feed off this system. Oversight authorities created and occupied by these beneficiaries are failing us in their duties to prevent this outcome. They are the foxes watching the chicken coop.

For too long, our federal government has been ignoring an epidemic created by a federal funding scheme under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act which incentivizes parent conflict in these courts. Gas is being poured upon family disputes which are better resolved in non-litigious environments.

This may be largely due to vital information which is not being presented to congressional representatives due to the fee and revenue benefits to those who exploit our children for profit. As a result, it leads to exponential costs for our society and a federal government facing an ever-growing budget deficit.

Such abuses of our Social Security program also produce human rights violations that have now reached epic levels. Suicides, homicides, domestic violence, worker productivity, and the psychological, financial and physical harm to parents, families and children make this a national concern.

Such abuses may eclipse that caused by tobacco, drug and chemical companies. There has never been a congressional inquiry on this subject despite countless victim reports including CDC statistics showing a record high level of suicides and drug addictions. It is an epidemic suppressed by a media policy of avoiding family issues and federal court abstention practices which defer such matters to state courts.

What are we demanding?

1) We want to end billions of dollars in federal kick-backs that reward judges by the size and number of support orders they issue.

2)  We want a national shared parenting bill to mitigate abusive custody laws that alienate children from their parents.

3)  We want better oversight of judicial misconduct, lawyer over-billing practices, child protection and support collection agencies.

4)  We want parental rights to be protected without discrimination.

5)  We want an end to debtor prisons and excessive childrearing dictates.

6)  We want to end lucrative referrals for needless evaluations.

7)  We want accountability for custody tactics and false charges.

When and where:

May 3, 2019, March begins 1pm at the White House

How it originated:

The Parent March was conceived by Dr. Leon Koziol, a parent rights advocate who practiced law for more than two decades without blemish. He successfully challenged gag orders, racist and sexist practices, and won substantial awards in federal and state courts. He obtained judgment invalidating the largest casino compact in New York.

Leon was featured on 60 Minutes, New York Times and CNN. When he took a stand against corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts, a horrific agenda of retaliation followed causing an indefinite suspension of his law licenses and child contact. That 12-year agenda was executed through criminal means and without accountability

Who is sponsoring it:

The March is being promoted principally by the Parenting Rights Institute as an umbrella sponsor with others assisting. PRI is a judicial watch and parent advocacy organization founded by Dr. Leon Koziol in 2010. It has conducted parent conventions, lobbying initiatives and traveled the country assisting moms and dads. It has offered book publishing services, self-representation and court strategy programs, video documentaries and professional referrals for parents.

The PRI relies on donations and purchases but has remained grossly underfunded. The March seeks to bring together groups and advocates from all states to finally be heard in a place where true reform can happen. We are hoping that you could join us as a co-sponsoring person or entity.

What is its purpose:

The uniting purpose of this March is to get our Justice Department to investigate corruption in our domestic relations courts and Congress to open public hearings on the horrific cases that are erupting there. Justifications for federal involvement include widespread abuses of Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

States abuse billions of dollars in federal money through protracted litigation and custody mandates which preclude shared parenting alternatives. A trillion-dollar industry has resulted to benefit lawyers, psychiatrists, drug companies and countless others to the demise of families and children.

Highly protected and suppressed from public knowledge, these abuses include Medicaid fraud, domestic violence, overbilling practices, parental alienation and a fatherless society contrary to the purported “best interests of the child.” This March seeks to bring universal awareness to an epidemic that is destroying the moral fiber, constitutional fabric and productivity of an entire nation.

What is the agenda?

Thursday, May 2, 2019 – A lobbying day on the eve of this March seeks to impact our nation’s leaders. An action plan will be confirmed, 8 a.m. at the Harrington Hotel, 436 11th Street NW, Washington D.C. located ideally between the White House and Capitol. The PRI has used this hotel for lobbying events including a news conference at the Supreme Court to announce the docketing of precedent seeking cases.

Groups with lobby packets will head to both houses of Congress with the hope that every elected member is notified at their offices. By our experience, these representatives pay little or no attention to their constituents unless backed by a high-profile special interest group. This will change when they see the seriousness of our message the next day.

Friday, May 3, 2019 – The White House

After a morning review session with key organizers at the hotel, marchers will begin assembling at President’s Park in front of the White House. A permit is required for events having more than 25 participants, and it will be obtained upon confirmation of a worthy number. Here we will be calling upon the president and Justice Department to open an investigation of our nation’s family courts. We will also request support for a National Shared Parenting Bill.

At 1 pm, the March proceeds along Pennsylvania Avenue (or the National Mall depending on logistics) to Upper Senate Park where a stop will be made to request congressional hearings regarding the abuses of Title IV-D funding and family court corruption. Such abuses continue to yield a fatherless America through debtor prisons and draconian enforcement practices that cause suicides, homicides and health impacts. The March will then resume to the Supreme Court a short distance away behind the Capitol Building.

Here we will offer victims an opportunity to present their individual cases and pleas for an end to parental alienation caused by judges and lawyers in these courts. At 7 pm, we will end the day on the opposite (front) side of the Capitol with a candlelight vigil for suicide and alienation victims.

Important:  The subjects and itinerary are not cast in stone. We anticipate input and modifications from volunteers as they join the event. However, we do not wish to jeopardize our effectiveness with a multitude of “beefs” that dilute our main message, that of ending corruption in these courts.

Why should I come?

Your involvement may change history. We parents love our children, but they are being exploited for money, turned against us, and taught to disrespect other authority figures. We have to stand up for our parental rights which the Supreme Court has declared to be “the oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution.” That liberty is being eroded with each passing day because parents lack an effective watch dog in Washington. This silent epidemic is very serious.

Our message is not being heard because government is steadily minimizing parenthood for an eventual take-over of our children much the way education was institutionalized. You may be traumatized because you do not understand what is happening. Now you can do something about it. It is a truly patriotic cause.

How can I get involved?

We are a loose collection of court victims, parent advocates and reform groups committed to securing justice for those being ignored by oversight agencies. In large numbers, we can protect one another, network more successfully and apply our energies more effectively. We have nationwide conference calls every Thursday at 7 pm EST. Nearly all 50 states are represented. You can participate by calling (605) 313-4165. Access code when prompted is 763491.

You need to make plans now. The Harrington Hotel is in a safe location, and easily accessed at the center of it all in our nation’s capital. The huge edifices, monuments and stately grounds are your property, the people’s domain. Don’t let them steal it from you. Make the pilgrimage to where it all began.

This hotel has good accommodations as low as $125 daily for a single room. Train and air fares can be very low if obtained in advance with free cancellations as close as two days prior to arrival. If there’s a will, there’s a way.

We need your help and contributions now. A Go-Fund Me page has been established and can be accessed by clicking anywhere on the link at the bottom of this page or at Details on the March are regularly updated on the latter site. You can also call our office at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail Leon directly at Welcome to our family!

This short documentary video by Parenting Rights Institute with a concluding home interview of its Director, Dr. Leon Koziol, explains the reasons behind the Parent March on Washington.

It was produced by an NBC crew and catalogues only some of the divorce and family judges nationwide who were sent to federal prison for taking custody bribes, harassing their mistresses and presiding over child support cases while impregnating a mom in chambers.




This first of a documentary series entitled, Parents Under Siege, is a 6-minute video describing the need for a Parent March from a lawyer standpoint. Released in December, 2018, it exposes the “Lawyer Epidemic” in our nation’s divorce and family courts.
