California Protective Parents Association's work is adding momentum to a growing movement to address child abuse
Since many protective parents are mothers who have lost custody of children by reporting abuse, we gather as supporters to all of these women who are trying to protect their child and regain custody of their children from the abusive parent. This past year CPPA hosted a Mother’s Day Conference for mothers who have lost custody of their children. Through the Mothers of Lost Children movement, mothers and supporters have gathered in Washington DC to march for protection of abused children every May since 2010. Each year, they meet with Congress to update them on the status of abused children across this country.
CPPA created the Courageous Kids Network for children of abuse to have an online space to get more support.
CPPA partnered with other organizations to form the Advocates for Child Empowerment and Safety coalition in 2014. The coalition brings together the best grassroots efforts to end the abuse of children in the US.
