Holly Ann Collins sought asylum for her children and herself in the Netherlands to escape abuse; her case has recently received national attention. Holly's daughter Jennifer, now 23, is unabashedly demanding answers from America's family courts. Jennifer has posted extensive information, court documents, and videos online atChildrenUnderground.;She presented her family's story at the 2009 conference.
The Conference includes presentations, round-table discussions, and question & answer sessions with nationally distinguished
professionals whose work is focused on resolving the complex issues facing battered women as they strive to protect themselves
and their children in and out of court during custody and visitation disputes. It is open to lay persons and of special interest to
advocates, social workers, psychologists, attorneys, judges, legal personnel, and others involved in the issue of battered women's
and abused children's legal and civil rights being routinely violated by family courts, DSS, and other government systems.
Battered Women, Abused Children, and Child Custody: A National Crisis is not funded and has no paid staff.
It has been, from its inception, a completely volunteer-driven, self-sustaining, grassroots phenomenon,
and is entirely the unpaid work product of its creators and presenters.
The Conference is neither financially supported by,
nor officially affiliated with,
any one particular group,
or political agenda.
