AFRA Accomplishments during the Second Year - 1999

Dear AFRA Members and Supporters

The second year of AFRA has been an extremely successful one. Although we have lost some along the way we have picked up many more good people who want to change the "winner-take-all" divorce system in Alabama. As you can see below we have accomplished a lot of good things, with minimal resources. If we all continue to work TOGETHER and reach out to others, we can accomplish great things in the coming months and years. I look forward to being President of AFRA for the next two years and working with you in the new millennium to make AFRA a household name and our principle that children need two parents even after divorce a reality in the minds of the public, our legislators, our judges, and our divorce attorneys.
