Battered Women, Abused Children, and Child Custody: A National Crisis was created in 2003 by two mothers, Mo Therese Hannah, Ph.D. of Albany, NY, and Liliane Heller Miller of Charlotte, NC.  Our on-going goal is to host a  national public forum to address the many complex issues facing battered women as they strive to protect themselves and their children during divorce, custody, and visitation disputes.

 In addition, it seeks to  raise public awareness by documenting civil, legal, due process, and human rights violations perpetrated on victims of domestic violence (women and children) by  family courts, their professional appointees, Child Protective Services, other government systems, and all who have built an industry which profits from the suffering of mothers and children trying to escape domestic violence.

The format of the conference continues to develop along with the growing body of scholarly research and case law documenting this issue.  It includes presentations, round-table discussions, and question & answer sessions with nationally distinguished attorneys, researchers, writers, and mental health professionals, as well as domestic violence survivors and their children.  We also seek to foster healing and support for the thousands of mothers, children, and supporting professionals whose lives are being permanently affected on a daily basis.

The Conference 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 juvenile and family courts, DSS, Child Protective Services, 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.

This conference is neither financially supported by, nor officially affiliated with  any particular group, organization, gender-based ideology, or political agenda.
