August 18, 2007 - CALL TO ACTION - STAND-UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS Let's see that Pennsylvania FACE is well represented August 18th 2007 Washington, D.C. Rally Family Preservation Bringing Children and Families Back Together Attendance Required for Change! If you don't have your children this weekend, you should be in Washington, DC on this Saturday. Even if you have your children, older children will benefit from the experience and you can take advantage of some of the sites on the Mall in our nation's capital. I don't know if Mike is still planning to get a bus but if you want to try to coordinate transportation. Please contact the following people: Mike Bill Bill Dave Please see Mike's note below for more info. As many as you know, there is to be a rally in Washington DC on Saturday, August 18 with people from around the country congregating to show our force and demand that our leaders recognize fathers as parents. Minister Ronald Smith, Founder and Executive Director of Children need Both Parents, has organized this event to educate about how the Federal Government's Title iv program, the Governments Social Security Administration's Welfare Reform Program has destroyed families. The list of speakers include Dr. Stephen Baskerville, President of the American Coalition for Fathers and Children; William Tower, President of American Family Rights Association; among many others. I have also just learned that (F4J) Fathers for Justice has just recently signed on to this gathering, and will be present on August 18. It would be great to see Spiderman climbing the Rotunda!! The rally will take place at the Lincoln Memorial. I am trying to coordinate transportation to Washington DC for the 18th of August. I need to know as soon as possible who is interested in making the trip with us. Seating would be limited to 22 people unless I received an enormous response from people, and then plans would have to be made for a larger vehicle. The bus would leave northeast Philadelphia at 7am, arrive in Washington at 10am and depart Washington at 5pm. We should arrive back in Phila around 8 pm. The cost of the trip for a 22 passenger mini bus will be $1224, driver's tip included. The cost of the bus will be divided evenly among all riders. For example, if we have the full complement of 22 people on the bus, the cost would be $56 dollars per person; if we only had 15 people on board then the cost will be $82 dollars per person. I believe that this price is very reasonable considering the price of gas today and taking into consideration that a round-trip Amtrak ride will cost $86 dollars per person. Minister Ron Smith has informed me that this event is scheduled for the Lincoln Memorial for at least the next FIVE years. He has also assured me that buses will be coming from all over the USA, including Texas, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Connecticut and other states. We need to make Pennsylvania seen at this event now and in the future. Please review the links below to get an understanding of the event and also to sign the petition for the rally. I have not yet placed a deposit on the bus and I will not place a deposit on the bus until I feel that we have enough people that are willing to commit their time to this event. Please contact me as soon as possible with a commitment, as Aug, 18th is rapidly approaching. Food and drink will be available from vendors in Washington. Please contact me at or leave me a message on the FACE office at 215 745-0805 Michael S
