BATH N.Y.(WENY)-- Friday afternoon a group of women held a protest outside of Steuben County Family Court, calling for change. The protest was lead by Corning resident Sherri Ballam. She's a grandmother who claims the family court system unjustly denied visitation rights for her to see her grandson. Ballam explains that the goal for the protest is to have children's voices heard when they are in the court system.
"These little guys will tell you what's going on they don't come up with these stories that's happening to them everyday, so that's why I'm here today to get more people involved and see what's going on in the court systems in this area," says Ballam.
We did put a call in to Steuben County family court for a response
