Event Details

SPECIAL SCREENING INTRODUCED BY
CONGRESSWOMAN CAROLYN MALONEY

No Way Out But One Logo

In 1994 Holly Collins became an international fugitive when she grabbed her three children and went on the run. It all happened because a family court had ignored Holly’s charges, the children’s pleas, Holly’s broken nose, Zackary’s fractured skull, and other medical evidence of domestic violence and had given full custody of Zackary and Jennifer to Holly’s ex-husband. Holly came to believe she and the children had No Way Out But One. 
 
"No Way Out But One" tells the story of one woman and her family that is emblematic of a larger heartbreaking national scandal. In Child and Family Court systems across the country, those who abuse their children are often awarded custody of them by the very courts charged with protecting them. It is estimated that 58,000 children a year are ordered into unsupervised contact with physically or sexually abusive parents following divorce in the United States.

Following the film, producer Garland Waller will lead an interactive discussion featuring:
 
Jennifer Collins
 Holly Collins' daughter is now the Executive Director of Courageous Kids, which helps other children who have been abused speak about their abuse so that they can begin to change the system. 
 
Senior Vice President; Director, National Judicial Education Program
Legal Momentum
 
TICKETS TO THIS SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT WITH CONGRESSWOMAN CAROLYN MALONEY ARE $25 EACH.
 
Limited availability. Reserve your place today.


Special Guests include co-producers Barry Nolan and Toby Kleinman, NJ attorney and founder and president of Center for Protection of Children, INC.
