Parenthood Justice League

Parenthood Justice League Advocacy group providing supportive services for disadvantaged parents. The Fatherhood Justice League advocating for equal opportunities for custody by offering educational resources, counseling, and supportive services for Non custodial parents.

Why? When a family is together it is most ideal however the reality is that often times most modern day families are not. When custody and courts get involved often Fathers become marginalized parents in our society. Custody and visitation rights seem to disproportionately favor the mother. In 2011 Robert Hughes, Jr. posted an article in huffington post which gives supportive evidence to this claim. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-hughes/are-custody-decisions-bia_b_870709.html From a personal perspective as a concerned and caring father I found myself in a situation where I went from being a full-time single father with a great relationship with my children for many years to being almost completely removed from visitation. I know many men who are concerned loving and caring parents. Who find themselves caught in custody battles whereas they are not being allowed to be equal and productive parents in the children's life. My goal is through my organization to provide supportive services to ensure that father's can both remain equal parents but have the resources they need to both properly provide for there children in cases where they are financially or otherwise disadvantaged.

A 10-year old girl was enjoying her summer when she was shot and killed after several men fired into a crowd in NE DC. Makiyah Wilson is one of many innocent children affected by this senseless gun violence.

Would definitely like to get more clarity from the family involved. But this story seems to be a heartbreaking example of how the custody system can be unbalanced.

Little boy has been staying with his dad because his mom has been
Incarcerated since 2010 on and off. She gets out of jail and court takes child from father and gives primary custody to mom.

New Documentary Explores Effects Child Support System Has On Black Fathers

A documentary exploring the child support systems and its consequences on families of color is set to premiere at the Kimmel Center.

Check out the trailer.
“Where’s Daddy?"
https://youtu.be/V3jkA32EErk

Unfortunately child support effects all fathers which in turns creates a problem for everyone. Many dad's aren't deadbeats, they are just dead broke.

There is definitely a systemic problem with the child support and family court system that creates a stereotype that tends to point towards black father more than any other race of fathers; however in fact the CDC debunked the myth that black fathers we're absentee fathers and not trying to pay child support and that they were actually paying more child support than any other race.

Unfortunately due to a broken system that is geared by $$$ in which they truly do not give a damn about the "best interest of a child" nor do they know what "real child support" is because real child support is being able to raise your child and spend time with them; not just payout and that's it.

"Time spent with a child is more important that money spent with no time." - DWS, Sr.
