Million Parent March 2017 – August 20th, 2017
The 2017 “Million Parent March” started as a meeting of the minds among parental rights leaders and activists after Kash Jackson’s march to eleven state capitols across the US, arriving in Washington D.C. on Sept 11th 2016. That action inspired the people to collaborate on this year’s march, which is the highlight of an epic four day program being coordinated by Kyle Paskewitz chair of Parentalink, Restoring Freedom’s Christine Sirgant, Operation Real Dad’s founder Crystal Colon, and Family First Act’s Kathleen Arthur. The “Million Parent March” will be held on September 18th, 2017.
The Million Parent March, is proud to announce our next featured speaker, Connie Reguli, one of our many renowned advocates for victims of CPS and the foster care system.
- Attorney for the Lawcare Family Law Center who fights for families suffering from government abuse
- Creator of the Family Forward Project
- Represented hundreds of families against family court injustice
Connie Reguli is a family law attorney who has been protecting families from unlawful practices by family courts and the Department of Child Services in both trial and appellate courts in Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina and Maryland for over 20 years. Connie’s experience has led her to become a strong advocate who stands up against abuse in the child welfare system.
Connie will be speaking about CPS and Foster Care reform and protection against government and court injustice and the question, “what do we do now?” Connie will be joined by other speakers and advocates from the movement, including Mark Ludwig, Kathleen Arthur, Carlos Rivera, Ron & Sherry Palmer, Jennifer Winn, Rod McCall, CJ Abernathy, and many more. The full list of speakers, a detailed schedule of events, and more will be announced in upcoming press releases and on the official website, www.millionparentmarchusa.org.

Grand Opening of Operation Real Dad (501c3)
We’re pleased to introduce a new 501(c)3 organization who is hosting their grand opening in Washington, D.C. around the Million Parent March, an organization founded by Crystal Colon called Operation Real Dad Legal Defense Fund. Crystal, a single parent herself, has experienced first hand the impacts of fatherlessness in America and has vowed to make a difference. Her and her group want to help through counseling, financial and legal assistance, and direct action aimed directly at helping fathers in need, because “every real mom wants a real dad”. Check out her presentation area across from Union Station throughout the Million Parent March event, as well as the Sunday Basketball Tournament and breakfast and dinner mixers around town.
