Allowing biased judges, in favor of a gender, to strip a parent of legal custody of their child. Restricting Due Process Rights
First AFCC net.org conference is held - Setting up the collusion between judges, attorneys and psychologists to control the family and juvenile dependency court industry. Worth tens of billions of dollars annually to AFCC members

Raise Your Rights introduces its first initiative - CA Attorney General's fiscal summary was "Unknown ongoing fiscal impact on state courts"; because "the ability to demand a jury trial serves as an incentive for individuals to (1) resolve child custody disputes outside of court or (2) reach agreement on custody decisions more quickly - thereby reducing court involvement and workload."

60 years of Federal child separation policies were ended to keep immigrant children's families intact - Sen. Diane Feinstein introduced the Keep Families Together Act, "The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Justice, and Health and Human Services shall not separate a child from a parent or legal guardian" UNLESS "a state child welfare agency or court determines it is in the child's best interests to be removed" which means every immigrant child could be legally separated; Psychiatrists decry the AFCC policies of domestic child separation on this basis.The Family First Prevention Services Act is signed into law to keep children from the traumatic experience of entering foster care. The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) supports the conclusion that our children are more resilient to withstand "conflict" than being separated from a parent and/or siblings.
