Legislative Resources - Powerful Speakers

As part of our efforts at Legislative reform and the passage of a Family Rights Act -- we can expect to see Congressional Hearings held and testimony made.  Right now our effort is focused on getting Members of Congress to take a public position and call for hearings to investigate the need for reform.

Many of us who are active in reform have attended meetings and had the chance to hear people speak on the need for reform.  We'd like to collect a list of "professionals" who would be willing to testify before Congress regarding the problems in the present system.  Remember, the most important testimony will come from parents deprived of a chance to raise their own children -- but the people below will certainly help in the effort.

They will be shown in order by State/Country.  These people may not necessarily all agree on the solution (or our solution), but they know there is a serious problem which must be addressed. If you know someone, please contact them and ask if they would be willing to testify -- then send us their information.
