Families Working for Change

Fractured Families, a coalition of families who have survived unfounded abuse allegations, offers advice to newly accused families and maintains a family support group on Facebook. The founders successfully lobbied for legislation that gives accused parents in Texas the right to a second opinion.

The Family Justice Resource Center, also founded by accused families, offers referrals to the legal and medical experts who can help fight these cases.

Torn Family in the Midwest offers educational resources.

The Amanda Truth Project offers advice to the newly accused and maintains a Facebook support group.

The Bayne family in Canada has organized a number of conferences for the falsely accused, under the name Evidence Based Medicine and Social Investigation (EBMSI). EBMSI also provides resources and support to accused families at  http://ebmsigroup.weebly.com/. Their Facebook site is at https://www.facebook.com/Evidence-Based-Medicine-And-Social-Investigation-Conference-EBMSI-114734805281786/?fref=ts

I’ve written up my notes from Dr. John Plunkett’s talk at the 2012 EBMSI conference at “Evidence-Based Medicine and Shaken Baby Syndrome,” and the talk by attorney Zachary Bravos at  “Parents, Meet the Experts, Experts, Meet the Parents.

A number of individuals have become activists on their own, reaching out to affected families and helping them through the crisis. For a moving presentation by a potent force, see this YouTube video, and for a from-the-heart blog, please see Not Shaken: Surviving False Accusations of Child Abuse.

For other resources for the falsely accused, see the Resources page of this blog.
