The Public needs to Stand Up and fight for REFORM; we can't sit back and let the vulnerable: elderly, disabled, and children continue to be victims of our INjustice System that court appoints Guardians without responsibility or accountability.
Write, Petition, Picket your Legislators to REFORM our courts.
