From the Meaningful movie website:
Every day, 5 million children in the US experience domestic violence, either as witnesses or victims. Due to a horrific system that favors abusive spouses, a shocking number of parents who seek to protect their children (and themselves) end up losing them. Most Americans are unaware that an abusive spouse, who contests custody from a protective parent, will win 70% of the time. This bold and provocative film is a long-overdue exploration into why the most powerful country in the world is not protecting its most vulnerable mothers and children and thus enabling generations of abusers to continue their abuse.
The event will be co-hosted by a local resident with personal experience with this injustice who has become a advocate for changes to the dysfunctional relationship between the Criminal Court and Family Court systems.
