An invitation from our friends at Palm Beach’s Foundation for Women’s Cultural and Economic Literacy:

DATE: Saturday, January 13, 2018
TIME: 2pm to 4pm
LOCATION: Florida Atlantic University Theatre, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL 33431
PARKING: Garage II off of Arts Ave

The Foundation for Women’s Cultural and Economic Literacy has partnered with Plumb Talk Productions to bring awareness to an issue we are passionate about: Equitable Alimony Reform.

Unless you or a loved one has been personally touched by divorce, alimony reform is not an issue that crosses your mind. We believe the devastating effects divorce has on families in Florida should be given greater exposure. If you are personally acquainted with divorce, you are aware of the contentious aftermath. What is undisputed is the need for Alimony Reform.

Together with Dr. Shelley Plumb and Jan Killilea of Women’s Empowerment Initiative, we created a documentary to give a voice and a face to the problem right here in Florida. We are thrilled that the premier screening for this complimentary event will be at Florida Atlantic University Theatre.

The documentary STAND UP! by PlumbTalk Productions takes an in-depth look at Florida State alimony reform through the eyes of a State Representative, a Family Law Judge, Marital and Family Law Attorneys, and a representative from the National Organization for Women, just to name a few.

Families who have been negatively impacted by the system found the courage to STAND UP to also tell their stories. Our goal is to bring awareness to the serious and underreported flaws of a system that denies families due process, enforcement of obligations, and ignores the human cost of divorce.

The film presents the problem surrounding the current system, the proposed alimony reform, and the direct effect that it will have on individual, family, and state economics. In the program, equitable solutions to the controversy that surrounds reform are presented in the hope that it will move those on both sides of the dilemma to work toward a fair and unbiased resolution. We encourage you to see the film which brings awareness to the issues which impact families throughout Florida and digest its meaning.

Film will be followed by a Q & A Panel with State, Local and National Dignitaries along with experts in their fields to share their insights.

GET INVOLVED!
Start a conversation in your community. See the film. Request a copy of the documentary and Resource Guide.
Together we can find the courage to unleash a voice that cannot be ignored and demand family courts fix a broken system. Changes are coming. Get informed!

Please share with others who could benefit from this important program.

SUPPORT THE CAUSE AS A SPONSOR!
We will screen the film at multiple venues across the state throughout the 2018 Legislative session to bring awareness to the need for fair and equitable reform to attorneys, legislators and policymakers. Film will be accompanied by a Resource Guide which will include sponsors. Tabling opportunities also available during the screening. Information at www.FWCEL.org/stand-up/
