"Superhero" protests for fathers' rights | Families
A 30 day protest atop a communications tower in Elk Grove, California is the latest event by the group Fathers-4-Justice, a not-for-profit, volunteer army of fathers, mothers, grandparents, and others dedicated to fighting for truth, justice and equality in family law. Members of the group are camping out around and on top of this tower to bring attention to the plight of families without fathers in the home and the effect it has on the children and society. Members don "superhero" costumes such as Superman, Superwoman, Spiderman, Batman and other childhood superhero favorites at these events to bring much needed humor and media attention to its cause.
Citing statistics from the US Department of Census and US Department of Health and Human Services, the group seeks to reverse the bias and discrimination in the Family Court system against fathers stating that 84% of all non-custodial parents are fathers. They are seeking a equal share parenting plan in the family courts to include fathers more frequently than at present.
The protest is being held atop a communications tower on Kammerer Road in Elk Grove, California.
