[I’m moving post declarations further down the page since beginning to include “Display Content” on my “Most Recent (Ten) Posts” widget, April 27, 2022. Otherwise the only content it displays is another version of a very long title. I want the short-links near the top so will leave abbreviations of the full title in place. //LGH)

Short version:
NSPC — ‘Coalition’ Meaning What? Rebranding the Same Themes with, Generally, the Same Entities … … ? [Begun Feb. 6, 2022, Publ. April 4]. (case-sensitive short-link ends “-dxg”).

PRWeb.com Fri April 1, 2022 Promo by NSPC for NSPC and NFVLC re getting STATES to pass VAWA ALL 50 States to pass Kayden’s Law). NFVLC Quote (right sidebar press release) ref. Danielle Pollack.

Why I use “NSPC” but those behind it, don’t:

The theme being promoted through NSPC is “Safe Parents” in the family (private custody) courts. I don’t see that “NSPC” is the  acronym used by its promoters or members, but it matches the website’s stated label: “National Safe Parents Coalition” and is shorter, so that’s what I’m going to use. It’s also often paired with “NFVLCgwu,” the other part of this dynamic-duo of non-entities^^ with shared messaging on a professional (PRWeb) press release which I just blogged the other day (see nearby image), asking whose money? was behind this:

^^Non-entity** ‘NATIONAL Safe Parents Coalition’ + non-entity ‘NATIONAL Family Violence Law Center’ (actually, GWU.edu) = WHOSE money behind attempt to (inter)NATIONALIZE DV, CA and the FamilyCourts? [From Feb. 6, 2022, Moved Here April 1]. (-e5D, posted April 1, 2022).

By April 2, evening, having again shortened this post and published part of it separately, the day before, I was on the verge of publishing this one, took a quick dinner (snack) break, and during it looked at my cellphone, only to find:

GW Law’s Joan Meier Is Installed in Newly Endowed Professorship Supporting Family Violence Survivors  | A $2.75 million gift from an anonymous donor endowed the new GW Law National Family Violence Law Center Professorship…

April 01, 2022, By Greg Varner (Photos by David Scavone)

In recognition of her groundbreaking work to support victims of domestic violence, the George Washington University installed GW Law Professor Joan S. Meier as the inaugural holder of the National Family Violence Law Center Professorship…

… After the ceremonial remarks from others, Meier spoke briefly, thanking the dean as well as the donor. “This moment feels like the culmination of a journey,” she said.

Briefly discussing the evolution of her work, Meier said she started out representing clients and helping them win civil protection orders, but then moved into the child custody arena, where she faced pushback from judges.

“We saw courts resisting the idea that children were at risk where women were at risk,” Meier said, “and the idea that fathers’ access might need to be limited to keep children safe.”

Meier’s research and litigation experience convinced her that systematic appellate advocacy was needed, so she launched DV LEAP, the first organization that would systematically take appeals in such cases

THIS POST IS: (full title):
NSPC — ‘Coalition’ Meaning What? Rebranding the Same Themes with, Generally, the Same Entities While Channeling (vs. Exposing) AFCC Lingo and Ignoring USA’s ‘We Both Love and Hate Women’ Federal Funds? [Begun Feb. 6, 2022, Publ. Apr. 4]. (case-sensitive short-link ends “-dxg”).

The same day of the installation, I’d just asked “WHOSE money?” This appears to be yet another level of  the “None Of Your Business” answer, the first levels involving having a center at a university which is itself not quite transparent (as to its financing) and the other, the NSPC.

The “safe parents” label (within “National Safe Parents Coalition”) is weak and vague and the intended “in the family courts” application for it’s (and NFVLC’s) Kayden’s Law/VAWA campaign is ridiculous and off-target (IF safety for children is indeed the real goal), so I won’t be using that phrase any more than I have to in my ongoing posts this year about this campaign and about those behind both websites and that campaign. Until some better solution comes to mind, I’ll use NSPC instead.

Passage of #VAWA Kayden’s was planned to be applied to individual states as quickly as possible based on recent passage of the federal version, to which I object even more, as a survivor, a witness over time of these systems, an investigative blogger and a person not afraid to ask “why” and point out where proof and logic aren’t even on the table; just more pressure, persuasion are and now, even more money for more of the same.

Now you know what the acronym “NSPC” (Twitter, “#NSPC”) stands for when I use it. What it represents is a different matter; I talk about it below the post title here, and (eventually) get down to documenting the member logos shown on an early version of the National Safe Parents Coalition website. We are going to see the Archive.org (“Wayback Machine”) version showing the probable start date.

This post has been in draft so long, I’ve already published parts of its content in the process of discussing the two acronyms NSPC and the associated NFVLC. I’m counting nine posts since February 6, most related to this topic and developments then and since.  See my right sidebar, “Last Ten Posts” widget.  Not all mobile phones show the sidebar, so for convenience, here are the last nine. (The tenth covers the use of the word “National” (Feb. 1, 2022) and is related, but started before this one).  Dates posted follow the titles. Click on any title to go to that post.

This post focuses on NSPC, but as both websites and their related social media accounts (of these, I only use Twitter) continue promoting what each individually and each other, and others who share their perspectives and paradigms, have been accomplishing, I now understand that the NSPC (website and campaign) was intended from the start to be the more temporary  and to help promote NFVLC. The NFVLC needed the passage of “Kayden’s Law – VAWA” for its director’s credibility, a victory to point to, on agenda of further nationalizing, first, United States’ family courts and eventually, the world’s. I will deal more with NFVLC and that claim separately, however read nearby pre-launch announcement carefully: it includes a statement of purpose.

Without passage of Kayden’s Law – VAWA, the credibility behind NFVLC as stated in its pre-launch announcement ‘Joan Meier and GW Law Announce New National Family Violence Law Center~~2022.Mar.29 Tues, pdf; a more recent post shows more of this) is basically: (1) A 2019 NIJ-funded study focused on mis-use of parental alienation, published by GWU.edu itself, and (2) Prior work at DVLEAP.org (“Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appellate Project”) based at George Washington University Law School. Not much of a basis! Please read my May 19, 2019 Page (“-8um”) documenting DVLEAP’s:  leaky  logic; laughable claim of thought-leadership and negligent/irresponsible shortlist of “DV National Resources>” with several long-expired (as of 2018) links.  In a list of ten, three broken, one entity name had changed, the fellow-thought-leader at another had been (since 2012) working out of a different nonprofit based in Washington, D.C. (one that is now listed under NSPC).

See also nearby screenshot from it, where I’d noticed that both the UDSOJ/OVW and “The Leadership Council” had given their blessing to DVLEAP’s practices; I said “If this is leadership, then we need a new type which better understands why domestic violence law, unenforced OR even enforced, doesn’t counteract $150M a year and deliberate saturation of the system with PRWORA-plus marriage and fatherhood promotion”, and identifying myself as someone whose experience (exposure) to the DV and family court gauntlet pre-dates the formation of DVLEAP… 

Screenshot from my May 19, 2019 Page (not post) on DVLEAP.org, DVLEAP New Website Still Derails OPEN Discussion… (see text on image, or that page)..

I wrote the that page January 2018, thought I’d published it but needing to quote or link to it in May, 2019, discovered it was still in draft and so published it the next day.  At the bottom of the page I also showed proof (screenshots from blogger’s dashboard) it was written January, 2018.  under 6,000 words with many annotated or captioned images: DV LEAP’s New Website Still Derails OPEN (Uncensored) Discussion of The PROBLEM, Digging A Deeper Hole for Survivors of Abuse and Their Children (Started Jan. 27, 2018 | Publ. May 19, 2019). (shortlink to this PAGE ends “-8um”).  I stand by that title: this applies to the developments since.

Basically, I called DVLEAP out (as published) three years ago, but as I also must have been talking about (and for the same reasons), four or more years ago. Meanwhile NFVLC was started about the same time, sometime in 2019.  

While I am no “influencer,” my page identified many weaknesses (more than flaws) within DVLEAP’s self-presentation, its statement of “The Problem” and proposed “Solution” as well as for sending readers who happened by on some wild goose chases with its list of references.  At least one of the references is now (under a different entity name) at NSPC…. The same fallacies in logic (making leaps without connection), even more arrogance in claims, and (on closer look) constant self-promotions, characterize the NFVLC, under the same individual leader (Joan Meier), with decreased visibility in following the money behind it, which I just blogged April 1.
