The Next Generation of F4J Superheroes Leads Inaugural Action

At 3pm in New Westminster BC, F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada announces their first low level action led by Katy, a 16 year old girl and the next generation of F4J Fathers 4 Justice Superhero. Katy will lead a small group of demonstrators on the pedestrian overpass located kitty corner to the #22 skytrain station.

"We always think about the adults during a separation because they have a voice, but we forget about the kids. Katy has a unique story and she deserves support from someone. We understand how she feels not having her Dad and her identity and want to give her the venue to speak her mind," says Kris Titus, National Coordinator.

F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada welcomes Katy as a representative of their JR Justice League, a section of the group dedicated to the efforts of great kids across Canada who have come out to try and make a difference for other kids who live the effects of broken homes. She is one of several up and coming Superheros in the organizations fight for equal parenting and truth, justice and equality in family law.

"You think we're bad, wait until you have to deal with our kids. There is a whole generation of children who will soon be adults that feel ripped off by the justice system in this country. Although it would be irresponsible for us to allow them to do real Superhero actions, we must do all we can to provide them a safe way to get their message out. Kids need two parents," says Titus.

"Katy is a very special girl. She is very intelligent and committed despite never having a proper education and she's a girl that will beat all odds, just the type of person F4J is looking for," says Rob Robinson, National Action Coordinator and mentor to Katy.

In Katy's own words, "And most importantly, it is my right to have a name, a nation and an identity. I want to help other kids so they don’t feel so alone and not to ever give up on their Fathers because as we get older we can make our own choices without the courts. Sadly we lose a lot of years this way until the courts start listening to the children, but I guess we’re just going to have to talk louder."

So how loud will Katy have to talk before the government's decide to listen?
