A U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee hearing. Arrests, prosecutions and convictions of abductors and abettors. IPCA Awareness Month. The past several months have seen a significant increase in attention to the barriers and opportunities to prevent and end international parental child abduction and bring kids home. It’s inspired a new hope and more action among parent advocates and supporters of internationally-abducted children.

This high-powered session engages every conference participant in self-reflection, a survey of the rich experiences, gifts and talents present in the room and opportunities to unleash collective kinetic energy to transform the IPCA reform landscape. Prepare for a fun and fast-paced, Movement-building session.

*This is a programming change. The previous session presenter is unavailable.
