Shameless Plug 2.0

This Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 7:30 p.m., tune in to your local SCETV station to watch The Big Picture with Mark Quinn. The South Carolina Access to Justice Commission has been working with Mark Quinn and the SCETV staff to produce a program about access to justice in general as well as self-represented litigants (SRLs).

Just this morning, SCETV interviewed Robin Wheeler, Executive Director of the South Carolina Access to Justice Commission, and Eric Smith, a father who successfully represented himself in a child custody action with assistance from the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition, a member of the SC Center for Fathers and Families funded by the Sisters of Charity Foundation of SC.

TV repeats of Thursdays broadcast will air each Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and again on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

And don’t forget to tune in this Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. to the Big Picture radio show where the discussion continues.

Must Read: THE STATE Editorial

Again, we are pleased to recognize a Commission partner, Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina. Tom Keith, Executive Director of the Foundation, is a current member of the South Carolina Access to Justice Commission.

This has been a great week for the Sisters of Charity’s Fatherhood Initiative. On Monday, they hosted a 10 YEAR Anniversary Luncheon. Yesterday, they participated in the SC Bar Foundation’s Bankers’ Recognition (more on that later). And this morning The State newspaper printed an Editorial piece on the Fatherhood Initiative and the impact that fathers have on their children.

Statistics suggest children who grow up without their biological fathers are more likely to live in poverty, have behavioral or emotional problems, engage in crime, drop out of school or have children out of wedlock.

Please take a moment to read through the article and the positive impact of the Sisters of Charity Foundation in South Carolina via the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families.

The Commission is pleased with the recognition of our partner and looks forward to continued collaboration and success. Congratulations Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina!
