National Parents Organization

National Parents Organization (NPO) is a society whose goal is to make shared parenting the norm. Their core principles are:
  • Shared Parenting: Shared parenting protects children's best interests and the loving bonds children share with both parents after separation or divorce.
  • Parental Equality: Equality between genders has been extended to every corner of American society, with one huge exception: family courts and the related agencies.
  • Respect for Human and Property Rights: The Supreme Court of the United States has found that "the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children… is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court."
Recently Steve Hitner, the force behind the successful effort to reform alimony laws in Massachusetts joined NPO.  

NPO has a Minnesota chapter that I will be contacting.
