As an alienated parent and victim of family court corruption, Wendy Perry (formerly Archer) became motivated to bring awareness and education about parental alienation out of the shadows. Her advocacy work has included coordinating and hosting the annual Parental Alienation Awareness Day event in Dallas/Fort Worth Texas and other large events such as the Parental Alienation Symposium drawing attendees from around the world, hosting monthly support group and advocacy meetings, meeting with legislators in Washington DC about family court reform as well as doing TV, radio and magazine interviews to raise awareness and education.  The corruption in Wendy’s family court case was so extreme that it was featured in the documentary Divorce Corp.  Having previously served on the board of directors for PAAO Canada and as a co-founder of PAAO USA; Wendy has most recently co-founded and serves as one of the officers for the non-profit organization PAAO International.
