A Child's Right had the pleasure of urging Derek Bailey, MSW and Dance4Equality to attend the hearings for Michigan House Bill 4564. American Indian Shared Parenting Organization, Dance4Equality was present outside of the House Building Office performing their spiritual dance in support of Michigan House Bill 4564. Derek Bailey, Tonia Bailey, Robert Pedersen and myself (Angela) had an excellent time the night before the hearings learning much about the culture of Derek Bailey's tribe which is located in Michigan. We experienced an amazing connection with the couple and are so proud to call them close friends. To see some of the members of Dance4Equality walk into the hearing room was breathtaking to say the least! A Child's Right is proudly affiliated with Dance4Equality.
Derek Bailey, MSW did an outstanding job outlining how shared parenting would positively impact his tribal community. He also did an incredible job explaining his viewpoint as a state of Michigan licensed clinical social worker and MSW. Dance4Equality CLEARLY "put themselves on the map" in Lansing as a leading shared parenting organization in Michigan. There was a tremendous sense of pride by all who supported Michigan House Bill 4564 when Dance4Equality was present.
