RaiseYourRights.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving California parents jury trial rights when summoned into a family or juvenile dependency court. Our goal is to end all false allegations, to promote settlement, and to limit unwarranted governmental interference in families’ lives by giving parents the Constitutional layer of protection of jury trial rights.
In California, custody removal hearings in family and juvenile courts are heard by a judge, not by a jury. This puts families at risk of long, drawn-out, expensive court cases. With the right to a trial by jury, families can go through this difficult process in a fairer, more democratic way. That’s why we’re advocating for ballot measure, 21-0001.
