When Protecting Innocent Families launched its petition in the spring of 2015, our goal was to collect the names of 1,000 people who had seen misguided accusations of child abuse tear apart innocent families. The response was overwhelming: We had collected 1,000 names within the first three weeks, and we were still going strong.
The rate has slowed since then, but the names are still coming in. We are approaching 3,000 names now, in early October 2015, and we have raised our sights to 5,000.
Meanwhile, we are working on a labor-intensive strategy for approaching Congress with the petition, which we hope will maximize the impact of our numbers. When we’re ready to wrap up and move forward, we will be contacting the people who indicated when signing that they would be willing to contact their elected representatives.
Thank you for your interest.
