Welcome, Ginger Gentile, to National Parents Organization

National Parents Organization is excited to announce that Ginger Gentile has joined NPO as Deputy Executive Director. Ginger brings a broad range of talents, skills, and knowledge as well as a deep understanding of the problems that NPO is addressing.

A film director and documentary maker, Ginger is best known for her highly anticipated, forthcoming documentary film, Erasing Family, which examines the trauma children suffer when a loving parent is erased from their lives. You can watch the trailer for the film here and follow the film on Facebook here. When NPO saw the massive following that Gentile had amassed in advance of her film, and her advocacy about children deserving equal access to both loving parents, we knew that her talents and skills would help us widen our base of supporters, including young people adversely affected by the family court system. As the debut of her film drew nearer, we felt it was the ideal time to invite her to take her activism to the next level by joining NPO in a leadership role.

Welcome aboard, Ginger. Together we’re going to do great things for our children.

Chair, Executive Committee, NPO


Making divorce and separation healthier for children is an issue close to my heart, as my work is driven by my own experience as a teenager as well as the countless families that reach out to me asking for help with their family court horror stories. A child losing access to a loving, fit parent after divorce is one of the largest public health crises of our day. But it is something that we don’t talk about. Our courts and legislatures are reluctant to create reforms that most people support, which is shared parenting and providing resources to reduce conflict.  

While I will continue to work on the distribution and impact campaign of Erasing Family, which will include creating resources to help kids “caught in the middle” and bringing the film to a wide audience, my role at NPO will allow me to create clear messaging for advocates working on the front lines of this issue. I hope that my role as Deputy Executive Director will bring new voices to the table and usher in an age of different groups working together with the shared mission of making divorce healthier for children.

Over half of the supporters of Erasing Family, and the stories we filmed, are mothers who cannot see their children. I look forward to working towards ensuring that children have the right to love both parents equally and ways to move the debate beyond moms and dads, to how to help the entire family heal.

I look forward to reaching out to not only members and supporters, but to different groups who are working on aligned issues. And of course, reaching out to those who disagree with NPO’s mission to find common ground. Together, we can raise a generation of children who will never be forced to choose, or have the choice made for them, of which parent gets to be a parent, and which gets to be at best a visitor, or at worse, completely erased.

The Criminal Justice System Has Failed to Reduce Domestic Violence

August 2, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Esq. A criminal justice approach to domestic violence hasn’t ameliorated the problem and may be making it worse. We need to find other methods of addressing DV if we’re to reduce its incidence. That’s the gist of this much-needed article by Professor Leigh Goodmark Read More
