For example, last night Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S., Chair of the Board of Fathers and Families, discussed HB 1400 on ABC’s Boston affiliate WCVB. The story also featured longtime F & F member Rob Derosier, who told WCVB about his long, hard fight to remain a meaningful part of his daughter’s life after his divorce.

Over the past several weeks, both the Boston Globe and the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Massachusetts’ 3rd largest newspaper, published editorials on HB 1400, and Holstein’s newspaper column Time for shared parenting appeared in the Telegram. Together with you in the love of our children, Glenn Sacks, MA Executive Director Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S. Chair of the Board
