How to Save a Life: Guardianship Limitations. #FREEJimmy

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The Iowa State House, The Iowa State Senate, Governor Terry Branstad, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Guardianship laws need to be changed and or limited to protect the voice of those who cannot fight for themselves and to allow communication between friends and family without the threat of harassment or trespassing.
There are currently 10,091 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

For those who have no insight guardians can control whom a person speaks to or sees. Every human being has the right to happiness and not being controlled in this manner.

My brother and I recently lost our father, his advocate in 2013. Since then his Guardian has forbidden all contact between Jim and his family. We've received threats of harassment/trespassing and we fear for his emotional and physical well being. I've come to the conclusion this is not just an issue for those in Iowa but all over our country. Guardians should have limitations and Jim should be able to speak and see his family.
