Michael Volpe has been a freelance investigative journalist since 2010. In 2012, I was the key note speaker for the Center for Immigration Studies Eugene V Katz Award. Since 2013, he has focused on the court system: guardianship, criminal, CPS, and family court. His series of articles on the Memphis VA Medical Center in 2014 and 2015 were featured on the O’Reilly Factor and helped lead to the dismissal of the hospital’s director. A 2014 article about a corrupt lawyer, Keith Dobbs, from Memphis helped trigger an investigation which led to the 2019 indictment on sixty-seven federal criminal counts. In 2013, he wrote an article exposing Cardinal Donald Wuerl as pro-pedophile; this was five years before the Pennsylvania investigation exposed him.

Mark Ludwig Americans for Equal Shared Parenting (AFESP)

Mark Ludwig is the executive director of Americans for Equal Shared Parenting (AFESP). This group was started by Mark out of the need to be the best parent he could be to his son, Levi. After going through his own experience and learning of other parents that had been relegated to weekend visitors, he decided to use his background in politics to effect change in the current Family Court system.

Mark has personally met with over 420 legislators across the country to discuss the need for equal Shared Parenting. In 2018 alone, he traveled to 38 cities across the country and worked with leaders in 24 different states. He started the organization with a goal of educating, enabling and empowering leaders across the country to help raise awareness of the need to pass legislation for equal shared parenting giving children equal access to both of their fit, willing, and able parents after divorce or separation.

Cal Washington

Cal Washington InPower Merchant Scholar

Construction contractor, musician, and family man-turned law merchant scholar, Cal Washington is the co-founder of InPower. He found himself tangled in the legal system and was forced to learn the truth about how things are, rather than how things appeared, or how things should be. Through his difficult journey, a path emerged. At the end of this path, he found himself on the other side, free of tyranny. This knowledge and experience came at great cost, but also with a great blessing. Today Cal is inspired to share that knowledge and experience with others, so that what happened for one can happen for many.
