There is too much to report today regarding our three-day event entitled Parent March on Washington, May 1-3. You need to get on our daily conference calls. A big one is tonight at 7 pm EST. As usual, call (605) 313-4165. Access code 763491.
The above 4 by 8 foot banners will head two divisions of participants from the White House down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol and Supreme Court, a march which permit agents advise will take only 40-45 minutes led by a police escort. This event is growing by the hour and establishes a turning point in how parents are treated in America’s divorce and family courts.
We should not take second class citizen status to non-citizens committing crimes at the borders to receive all our free services while the same government is bankrupting us in these courts to pay for such services. This has gotten beyond insane and its time for sane parents to straighten it out. But this event is costly. We need both your support and donations on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com.
The above conference call number and this website will remain the source of information until the last event, our Candle Light Vigil at Area One in front of the U.S. Capitol beginning at 7 pm on that last day, Friday, May 3, 2019.
The first day of our Parent March on Washington is next Wednesday beginning with the American Parent Caravan leaving Liberty State Park in Jersey City at 10 am and concluding at the Washington Beltway.
There will be a “Meet and Greet” at 5 pm the same day at the 21st Amendment Lounge at the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street SW near the Capitol Building. An orientation session will follow at 7pm that evening in the same hotel at the Congressional Ballroom down the hallway from the Lounge. There we will pass out 550 lobby packets for delivery to every office in Congress.
Lobby Day is next on Thursday, May 2nd, 10 am to 4 pm at the Senate and House office buildings where we will deliver those lobby packets with many participants meeting with their representatives.
At 7 pm that night, we will feature Guest Speakers in law, politics, education and psychology at the same Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street, only a few blocks below the Capitol and House office buildings. We will also “rally the troops” for our March the next day.
On Friday, May 3, 2019, our main event, the Parent March on Washington begins assembling at Lafayette Square Park on the north side of the White House at Noon. The March will start at 1 pm and proceed along Pennsylvania Avenue, past the FBI Headquarters and Justice Department, to the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court concluding across the street behind the Capitol.
At Area 10 at that location (East side of the Capitol across from Supreme Court), a rally will occur with an open, outdoor speaking event. All people who wish to present their ordeals and requests to the public and media will be heard. A candle light vigil is planned for 7:30 pm at Area One on the opposite (front) east side of the Capitol facing the Washington Monument.
A movie documentary of the entire 3-day event is being sponsored by a Philadelphia area attorney, Lawrence DeMarco. He will be the guest speaker on our nationwide conference call tonight at 7 pm EST. Get in on the excitement. Attorney DeMarco will explain the coverage and details. You are welcome to ask questions.
Only those who attend the event will be included in this documentary to be published and distributed to members of Congress at a later date when completed. We had another stimulating conference call last night for the sole purpose of hearing the ordeals of victims.
Conference call number and access code are the same and will be during the entire three day affair in case you want to get in on all the excitement. We will be conversing among vehicles throughout our four hour trip to Washington from Liberty State Park. Call number again is: (605) 313-4165. Access code when prompted is 763491.
We were very accommodating to participants last night but remain committed to parent child separations and court corruption. We cannot allow participants to go beyond that scope to vent beliefs and issues outside that scope. You must mute your phones if you care to participate. It interferes and is disrespectful of the guest speaker and fellow participants. No vulgarity or personal attacks will be tolerated.
Major developments continue regarding the support and timing of our Parent March on Washington. The National Park Service issued us a permit for a rally to be conducted at Lafayette Park in front of the White House on May 3, 2019. Our original application had us at President’s Park, but Permit Agents suggested Lafayette Park because this is the coveted location that is closest and most visible from the White House.
Fortunately it was not too late of a change. The site was not already reserved, and now it is ours. We will gather and begin rallying at Noon. A giant banner will face the White House. We leave for our March down Pennsylvania at 1 pm. Stragglers and clean-up will end our presence at that site by 1:30 pm.
The significance of this cannot be understated. At present, all three branches of our federal government are clashing over a subpoena issued by the Congressional (House) Oversight Committee upon the president in connection with the Mueller Report and impeachment efforts. That subpoena may soon come before the Supreme Court.
If you look at my posts months back on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, I predicted this. I have also regularly emphasized during our nationwide conference calls that a window of opportunity will emerge for parents to take center stage during this clash at this prime time period.
Our overriding message behind this March is to shift attention from parent-child separations at our borders to parent-child separations here in our nation’s divorce and family courts. The people of this country, both Republican and Democrat, are fed up with these costly investigations for political gain.
While they’re playing politics, the issues they were elected to address are being ignored. Our many news releases and submissions to the same oversight committees on both sides of Congress continue to be ignored, and that is all the proof we need to justify our March.
Yesterday’s conference call produced a record number of participants, more than 100 altogether. Many gave up after being unable to enter the call due the the sheer number calling in at the same time. Many first-time participants did not mute their phones, other late arrivals missed our early house rules and interrupted time and again.
The confusion caused many to exit early but they were already on board. The ones who stayed patient or persistent included a former New York prosecutor, business owners, veterans, law enforcement and parent alienation victims, all concerned moms and dads.
Our conference calls are daily now (excluding Saturday and Sunday) until April 30, 2019, the evening before our American Parent Caravan which leaves Liberty State Park for D.C. at 10 am, May 1st. Our complete 3-day itinerary and purpose can be found by clicking here.
Tonight is an “Open Microphone” session where we will hear from anyone who has a story or ordeal to tell. We have prohibited such discourse in past calls because they could swallow up the entire session with no progress. Such prohibition has allowed us to make great strides in a short period of time. However with daily calls, we are now in a position to hear from you directly and immediately with no business reports.
The nationwide conference call begins, as always at 7 pm EST. The number and access code are also the same. It will be the same throughout our four hour motorcade to Washington. It will be the same throughout our 3-day event for those who wish to communicate or network with one another. That number and code (when prompted) is (605) 313-4165. Code is 763491.
No more talk, excuses or keyboarding to the choir. And no more rejections by our government. Our time is now and we mean to take it. Be there! Spread the word today!
Among the many developments occurring almost hourly regarding our Parent March on Washington is a giant banner which will be displayed in Lafayette Park at the start of our March. That park location was recommended by Nation Park Service permit agents because it is closest to the White House. At that location this banner is big enough to be seen from the White House.
That March will start next Friday, May 3rd at 1 pm. That’s right, it’s now “next” week. We’re that close to showtime. That’s also why you need to get on our nationwide conference call tonight at 7 pm EST because we have lots to report and you won’t want to miss out. Call (605) 313-4165, then enter access code 763491 when prompted.

On this most important Christian Celebration of Easter Sunday, I would like to wish all parents the best in their hopes and dreams for their children and families. I was born on Easter morning and maybe that has something to do with the crusade I have been forced to undertake for justice in our nation’s divorce and family courts.
To that end, here at the Parenting Rights Institute, we are taking crucial action to protect our parental rights which have come under rapid fire in recent decades. For too long, like the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, we have taken these rights for granted.
On this very morning, I received a voice message from a mom highly distraught over the abuse she was needlessly exposed to in a local family court. It featured two of the usual lawyers who make their living separating parents from their children. She had not seen one of them in more than a year.
I am more than familiar with her plight because I have been deprived access to my daughters for more than five years without accusation of any crime, no report of child abuse or neglect, all in retaliation for my reform efforts and whistleblowing reports since 2008.
My daughters have effectively lost both parents in the process because a genuine mother would not conduct herself in such a demonic way. But that is what the current antiquated custody system does to people. The replacement mother, created by the state to be a “custodial parent,” is programmed to act as its agent.
Despite my requests for phone contact, I will not get a call from either daughter today. I could remember fondly the years as a single divorced father when we had Easter egg hunts in my home, dinner with family and games outside in the yard. None of this mattered to the sick lawyers on the bench who caused this barbaric separation.
Without any rational grounds behind this parental alienation, what else could possibly have influenced Kelly Hawse-Koziol to fixate herself with replacing me? How could she not see the agenda of her many fired lawyers? Was it a lavish lifestyle that was consuming her? Campaign donations to my adversaries from my child support payments? Political party allegiances of presiding judges? Something much worse?
Cases like mine and this mom on Easter morning require a federal investigation. Those with proper staff and resources must examine criminal violations of federal laws that protect civil, parental and human rights. Questions we all have require answers.
For my part, why wasn’t my custody judge, Bryan Hedges, not prosecuted after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped, five year old niece? Are such prosecutions reserved only for Catholic priests simply because they wear a different colored robe?
Why was the chief administrative judge who appointed 41 trial judges to my originally uncontested divorce not prosecuted for directing his chief family court clerk to spy on a handicapped judge? This clerk recovered $600,000 in her federal civil rights lawsuit because, unlike litigants, court employees are not foreclosed by judicial immunity, look it up on-line: Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).
And just when you thought it was safe to return to court, along comes Utica, New York city judge, Gerald Popeo, publicly censured by the state Judicial Conduct Commission for misconduct ranging from violent threats to unlawful contempt incarcerations. He acted in this adolescent manner because his ego was bruised.
Shockingly, a hearing judge found that Popeo had made a racist joke to an African-American attorney to the effect that downstate blacks call upstate blacks “country niggers.” Where were the protests when that Commission failed to remove him as it should have?
Because he was not removed, the same administrative judge, James Tormey, assigned Gerry Popeo as Judge #41 to my custody and support cases in 2018 after 39 prior ones were removed, retired or disqualified since 2004. This is the same Gerry Popeo who was publicly censored on February 12, 2015 for threatening to come off the bench to “wipe a smirk off” a litigant’s face.
What sort of example is that for a family judge who is called upon to decide domestic violence cases? The list of questions for federal investigators goes on. Why was Judge Popeo not prosecuted sooner when he compared a prosecutor to a “cigar store Indian.”
I’m not making any of this up. It’s all in the record. How much more misconduct does it take to remove a judge? And not just Judge Gerry, but lawyer Gerry in the way of disbarment for the same serial abuses of a magnitude that defies the 21st Century!
Gerald Popeo was assigned to finish me off as a judicial whistleblower exposing such misconduct. Six months prior to this, Gerry approached me at a bar complaining of my involvement in his public censure complaints as a civil rights attorney.
For example, on one occasion in 2010, I was defending a former African-American city commissioner on a series of nuisance and ordinance violations at his night club. We had earlier won a $333,000 jury verdict in a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city that was now harassing him. Popeo put him in the city-lock-up where this man had never been, where he then attempted suicide using a belt placed in his cell. A jury later dismissed all charges.
The Popeo assignment resulted in a near fatal incident at a highway stop on August 30, 2018 which I have compared to the Walter Scott murder in South Carolina. He was the unarmed father fleeing a child support warrant who was shot dead in the back five times by a traffic cop.
So what did that same Judicial Conduct Commission, have to say about all this? It’s a-okay. Wow! If they can do all that to a loving parent, unblemished attorney and model citizen, imagine what they could do to you. What recourse do you have before a judicial commission dominated by self-regulating lawyers?
On May 3, 2019, we are sponsoring the Parent March on Washington to send the overdue message of reform in our nation’s divorce and family courts. We are demanding a federal investigation of human rights violations here caused by federal incentive funding.
We are demanding that our government shift focus from parent-child separations on the border to separations of our own parents legally residing here. Our March begins at 1 pm in front of the White House and ends across from the Supreme Court.
For the sake of your children and parents everywhere, make the pilgrimage to your nation’s capital. We are also sponsoring a Lobby Day on May 2, 2019 for those who would prefer to address members of Congress directly.
A speakers event at 7 pm on that day will occur at the Congressional Ballroom, Holiday Inn Capitol Hotel and Conference Center, 550 C Street SW, just below the Capitol Building itself. Experts in law, politics, education and psychology will give you valuable information on how to best serve your parenting interests. There is no charge for attendance.
Join our nationwide conference calls to learn more and help make this March a resounding success. We are a grass roots effort with little financial support, no political backing and no special influence. On Monday (tomorrow), call (605) 313-4165. Enter access code 763491 when prompted. As long as your protest sign is not vulgar or threatening, we cannot tell you how to fashion your message. But, rest assured, one will state:
“REMOVE RACIST JUDGE GERALD POPEO FROM THE BENCH!”
In only a matter of weeks, the vision of a powerful reform statement in our nation’s capital is becoming reality. Promoted as the Parent March on Washington, now there is more incentive for victimized parents to join us. All the divorce and family court ordeals presented at the speakers events will be consolidated into a video documentary. When completed at a later date, it will be published everywhere and submitted to all members of Congress.
This is a crucial development because your stories will now be “eternalized” as the producer described it. Collectively they will become a powerful statement lasting well beyond our three-day event. This documentary is being financed by a Philadelphia lawyer (and former judge candidate) based on his reading of our recent report “Federal Funded Epidemic” and the videos published on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com.
Only the ordeals of those who come to this March will be included. There are two speaking events for this purpose. On May 2, 2019 at 7 pm, in the Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street, SW, we are featuring expert speakers in law, politics, education and psychology. By coming here, you will obtain valuable information to apply to your cases. Extraordinary ordeals will also be featured where time allows. There is no charge for this event.
The second speaking event is the one on May 3, 2019 at the end of our March across from the Supreme Court (Area 10). This is where anyone can offer their stories of corruption, parent alienation and other human rights violations occurring in these courts. A microphone and sound system will facilitate this at approximately 3 pm (depending on the time of the March which begins at the White House at 1 pm). We are inviting mainstream and social media to both events.
To maximize our success on behalf of victimized parents everywhere, we need you to share, promote and support this event. We also need you to make and solicit donations on this site. This event is costly and we rely on your financial assistance. It’s time to shift the focus from illegal immigrants at our borders to American parents separated from their children here at home. Join our nationwide conference calls beginning dasily on Monday, April 20, 2019 at 7 pm EST. Call (605) 313-4165, enter access code 763491 when prompted.
Featured below are excerpts from speakers near the same location at a news conference in 2016. It begins with Dr. Mario Jimenez of Miami, Florida. The purpose was to draw attention to a case which I had docketed the same day at the United States Supreme Court (in the background). Now, an economics professor from a prominent university has a case which will be reviewed by the Justices here only days after our March ends. He will be speaking at both events.
Administrator’s Note. We host a nationwide conference call regarding this event every weekday night at 7 pm EST beginning on Monday April 22nd. Call (605) 313-4165. Enter access code 763491 when prompted.

The two-part video below explains the background, purpose and itinerary for our May 3, 2019 Parent March on Washington. It is now a three day event. We have an American Parent Caravan leaving Liberty State Park in Jersey City at 10 am on May 1, 2019. It will arrive in D.C. about five hours later. Join us for the ride of a lifetime. Put signage on your vehicles if you wish to draw attention to parent-child separations here in our divorce and family courts.
At 5 pm, we will have a “Meet and Greet” at the Holiday Inn Capitol Hotel and Conference Center at the 21st Amendment Lounge. At 7 pm we will have an orientation and strategy session for our three-day event at the Congressional Ballroom at the same hotel.
On May 2, 2019, we are sponsoring a Lobby Day. We need you to contact your representatives in Congress to request a meeting on that day to share our report seeking an oversight hearing and federal investigation of human rights violations in our nation’s divorce and family courts. We are hoping to cover every office in Congress.
At 7pm on that day, we are sponsoring a Speakers Event at the same Congressional Ballroom. Prominent experts in law, politics and parental alienation will provide excellent presentations to help you in your times of need. There is no charge for this event but reservations should be made to assure a seat by e-mailing me at email@example.com.
On May 3, 2019 at 1 pm our main event Parent March on Washington will begin at LaFayette Park in front of the White House and end across from the Supreme Court on First Avenue. At Area 10 behind the Capitol we will have a rally featuring court victims who will share their ordeals with the crowd and media. We want a National Shared Parenting Act and Judicial Whistleblower Protection Law. We also want to convince the Supreme Court to hear a case which protects our rights in these courts. One of our speakers has a case pending there.
We hope to conclude the three-day affair that evening at the same location with a Candlelight Vigil dedicated to all those who have been lost to parental alienation and suicide.
It’s your one big chance to be heard where your voice will matter. Such an opportunity may never happen again. We owe this to our children and future generations. Be there. Share this message.
Parents Under Siege: The Judge Epidemic
Below: Dr. Mario Jiminez of Miami Florida outlines the serious epidemic being caused by parent-child separations and human rights violations in these courts. He was joined by other experts from around the country during my 2016 news conference to announce my filing of a relevant case before the United States Supreme Court (in the background).
