Described and/or mentioned on other pages of this website, this class action lawsuit, besides all of the "regular" constitutional and other legal arguments, also includes a few whistleblower claims against the various federal funding programs involved (Title IV-A, IV-B, IV-D, IV-E, etc.). Twenty percent (20%) of the total whistleblower reward for Plaintiff CAPRA is earmarked for providing per-head recruitment bonuses, one (1) bonus to be paid for each and every single Member of CAPRA recruited on board, paid to whoever recruited them, using Codes for tracking all bonuses. Every other eligible person you successfully recruit on board earns you an additional recruitment bonus!
Using the smallest example from our Homepage and Leaderships page, i.e., our ultra-generous offer to settle the whistleblower claims for only a mere 1/20th of the statutory minimum 15% cut, that would result in a total plaintiff rewards payment of roughly $270 million for CAPRA, more or less, and so then that equates to about $54 million earmarked for the total of all 51,764 CAPRA Members to be recruited on board, or an estimated $1043.20 recruitment bonus for each and every one. We remind that the actual bonus could very easily be significantly higher than this limited estimate...
As is also explained upon the Leaderships page, there are five (5) different levels of Leaderships for the entire class action communications army nationwide, including all the fifty thousand plus (50k+) "County" communications leaders, over two thousand (2000+) "Division" communications leaders, along with two hundred and eighty (280) "State" communications leaders, forty-two (42) "Region" communications leaders, and fourteen (14) "National" communications leaders at top. The below explains the whole recruitment process, including how many leaders are in each different team level per geography, how many successful recruits you need to advance to each higher level of leadership, and those related details. Refer to this color-coded USA map as needed:
This entire process of adding a built-in, communications support army was designed specifically to maximize the leveraging of America's residential population density.
About 95% of all such 3142 U.S. Census "Localities" are called "[something] County" while the rest are county-equivalents, like "boroughs" and "census areas" in Alaska, "parishes" in Louisiana, and even "independent cities" like St. Louis, Baltimore, and others, which are cities not part of any counties, with their own borders, etc. Using different population thresholds, each different Locality is shown with either three (3), five (5) or seven (7) CAPRA membership slots on this example spreadsheet. We are using four (4) of those (real) spreadsheets together, each with 12,941 slots, for a grand total of 51,764 maximum CAPRA membership slots available across the nation, hence "three" slots shown on the single spreadsheet for a Locality is actually twelve slots available, "five" is actually twenty slots, and "seven" shown is actually 28 slots.
RULE #1: YOU MAY FREELY RECRUIT FOR ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE
As is also explained upon the Leaderships page, every Member of CAPRA, regardless of how high in leadership level each Member/leader eventually achieves, is always and still another member of their own respective local team, i.e., for your own County (or other "Locality"). As detailed in the above paragraph, every County (or other Locality) is allowed a maximum number of either 12, 20, or 28 Members/leaders corresponding to its own population size. Your own local communications team (for your own County or other type of Locality) will most likely reach its own maximum limit of 12, 20, or 28 Members/leaders on board rather quickly... Once each given County (or Locality) has reached its own corresponding team limit, no more registrations will be accepted for that County (or Locality), additional attempts at recruiting for that County (or Locality) will be fruitless and worthless, they will not count towards your total accumulation of recruiting bonuses, and etc. As each County/Locality becomes full with its maximum number of Members/leaders, the online reference County/Locality spreadsheet will be marked to reflect the given maximum being already reached for that same local team.
However, regardless of where you personally live in the United States, i.e., regardless of which County/Locality you live in and that corresponding local team that you will be part of, you may freely recruit for ANY other County/Locality across the entire country, as you are NOT restricted to looking only in your own geographical backyard. In other words, you MAY and CAN (and should...) freely post your own personal "Join us now!" recruiting messages anywhere and everywhere (with your own Recruitment Code for them to use, of course), like on large Facebook and Yahoo groups, etc., to your entire email list of other fellow family rights activists, and anything else you have available, because it doesn't matter where they live across America, and every single one that responds to your recruitment message, and then uses your Code to successfully join CAPRA, adds yet another recruitment bonus to your total credits, each and every one.
Of course, for you to successfully recruit another fellow family rights activist on board, he/she must be actually eligible to join CAPRA (refer back to the registration form on the Homepage, and/or to details on our F.A.Q. Page), and there must be available Membership/leadership slots still open within that other person's own County/Locality, naturally. Make no mistake, this is a race among the most motivated communicators within the family rights movement, and you should start your recruiting immediately.
EXACTLY WHAT ARE "DIVISIONS" AND WHICH ONE IS MY OWN DIVISION?
Each "Division" is nothing more than simply a given local cluster of adjacent counties and/or county-equivalents, i.e., simply that local area cluster of whatever Localities, which are all assigned together under the single jurisdiction of one particular federal courthouse. Under the federal court system jurisdictional breakdown, each State and Commonwealth has from one (1) to four (4) Districts, typically based upon population and/or size of geography to cover. There are usually one good handful of "Divisions" within each "District" of a State or Commonwealth. Because it also has independent cities, we'll use the following color-coded map of Virginia to help explain, and you can click on the image for a larger view "pop-up" within a new, separate browser window:
The Commonwealth of Virginia has a "Western District" with seven Divisions, and an "Eastern District" with four Divisions. Harrisonburg Division, which is the dark yellow or gold Division along the top center of the state, includes nine (9) counties and four (4) independent cities. Each of the other Divisions in Virginia has its own cluster of adjacent Localities, as you see. Your State or Commonwealth is basically the same, with its own one or more "Districts" and multiple "Divisions" within each such District.
In order to figure out the name of your own local Division, and what counties and/or county-equivalents are within your Division, there are two basic ways to determine that. The quickest and easiest way is to go here, then simply click the link for your own State/Commonwealth. However, over the many years since these federal laws were originally passed, some areas have changed slightly due to local area decisions, and also, not every single State and Commonwealth is accurately detailed enough by these instructive statutes. The second, more precise method is to go directly to the federal court website for each main "District" and look up the precise Divisions within that District, to see exactly what Localities (i.e., counties, and county-equivalents like parishes, boroughs, and independent cities) are actually within which different Division nowadays. To do that second method, find the corresponding main District here and go to its listed/linked main website, and then you'll just have to look around until you find that information. Out of all 450ish Divisions across the entire USA, a few special situations exist and will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis for that area's leaders.
RECRUITING OTHERS TO ADVANCE INTO HIGHER LEADERSHIP POSITIONS
Each of the thirteen (13) Localities within our above example, Harrisonburg Division, has its own local communications team of 12, 20, or 28 Members/leaders (depending upon population sizes, review our Leaderships page for more details). Out of those 100+ local leaders within all the 13 counties and independent cities of Harrisonburg Division, five (5) especially motivated ones will rise to be the Divisional leaders over that particular Division, because of their own personal recruiting successes. Each of the other Divisions in Virginia also gets its five (5) Divisional leaders in the same way.
Likewise, out of those (11 Divisions x 5 Divisional leaders apiece =) total 55 Divisional leaders within and for all of Virginia, the "State" level leaders for all of Virginia will be selected based upon even higher personal recruitment successes. As you can see on the color-coded USA map further above on this same webpage, Virginia is part of our "Region 6" group of States/Commonwealths, and so out of all of the highly successful state-level leaders for those particular States/Commonwealths, exactly four (4) men and four (4) women will again, likewise, based upon their own extremely successful personal recruiting efforts, arise to become the eight (8) Members of CAPRA who are the Region 6 team of communications leaders (the regional leaders over that Region), and the same pattern applies for every State and Commonwealth, and every Region.
Finally, the top-recruiting man and the top-recruiting woman within each given Region become the "National" leaders from that same Region, and together these seven pairs of men and women are the entire National leadership, over the entire communications army and all things everywhere. They run the show, and they also get paid the most.
To advance from "County" leader up to "Division" leader, you need to accumulate at least five (5) total successful recruitments (again, for anywhere in the USA), plus you need to be among the first people within your own Divisional area to reach that threshold, and the fair gender balances discussed below also apply.
To advance from "Division" leader up to "State" leader, you need to accumulate at least ten (10) total successful recruitments (again, for anywhere in the USA), plus you need to be among the first Division leaders within your own State/Commonwealth to reach that threshold, and the fair gender balances discussed below also apply.
To advance from "State" leader up to "Region" leader, you need to accumulate at least twenty-five (25) total successful recruitments (again, for anywhere in the USA), plus you need to be among the first State leaders within your own Region to reach that threshold, and the fair gender balances discussed below also apply.
To advance from "Region" leader up to "National" leader, you will need to accumulate at least fifty (50) total successful recruitments (again, for anywhere in the USA), plus you need to be the first one of your gender within your own Region team to reach that threshold, because the fair gender balances discussed below also apply.
Note: We remind you that if you achieve enough successful recruitments and meet the other parameters to advance in leadership levels, not only do you get all of those estimated minimum recruitment bonuses of (at least) $1043.20 each..., but because you also advanced in levels, your already-nice leadership base share amount will then automatically double in size, too... We recommend you start your recruiting asap...
ALL LEADERSHIP TEAMS TAKE FAIR GENDER BALANCES INTO ACCOUNT
Gender balance of each leadership team is exactly equal at the Regional and National levels, as is mentioned above. Gender balance is nearly equal at all three lower levels ("County", "Division", and "State"), and that is not any sort of favoritism, whatsoever, but is practically based upon real-world governmental victimization rates, our needs to maximize and leverage actual population densities, and that sort of thing. Of the two main "family court" realms involved in this class action, and therefore also of the entire membership of CAPRA, the much larger victimization realm per capita is that [custody support visitation] world, which mostly still victimizes innocent fathers, while the [child protective services] realm still mostly victimizes innocent mothers unlawfully, but that victimization world is somewhat smaller in total numbers... Accordingly, membership registrations for each Locality team (again, that means counties and similar) will all be allowed at roughly half and half for each gender, and certainly no more or no less than 1/3rd and 2/3rds either way (either gender high or low at local levels). Then for each Division team (5 leaders) that ratio will be allowed at near-gender-balance of 3 fathers and 2 mothers (regardless of which "family court" realm they all come from). "State" level teams for each State and Commonwealth range from a minimum of five leaders (in and for 32 of the States/Commonwealths), or some other higher odd number of leaders based on complicated formulas, up to nineteen leaders in and for Texas (which besides being the 2nd most populated State, also has a whopping 254 counties, by far more than any other State or Commonwealth). So, all the various State teams will be allowed exactly one more father than mother, which means that all those 32 smaller States/Commonwealths (each with 5 leaders) will be just like the Division teams, with 3 fathers and 2 mothers, while States like Georgia and Illinois (both having 11 total "State" leaders) will be 6 fathers and 5 mothers, etc., but above that, at Regional and National levels, again that will be exactly half and half pairs of men and women. The number of "State" leaders for each State and Commonwealth is per Column "F" here.
Further, there is one more gender+geography parameter for achieving "Regional" level of leadership. Region 2 includes a full eight (8) States, which is exactly one (1) top leader per each different State to be in that Region 2 regional team, also reminding that those eight top-recruiting people will be exactly four men and four women, so it's a combination of first-come, first-served, most-recruited per each of those States, whether male or female gets the regional spot for that given State first, and yet still only the first 4 men in total, and only the first 4 women in total. The entire idea is that EACH State and Commonwealth gets fair representation upon and within its own corresponding regional team. All the other Regions have only seven (7) States and/or Commonwealths, and so within each of those Regions, the most populated State or Commonwealth gets both its own top-recruiting man and also its own top-recruiting woman. For example, in Region 1 (Pacific - blue colored on the USA map), California is that most populated State, for that Region, so while the other six States in Region 1 each get either a top-recruiting man or a top-recruiting woman, California gets one of each, i.e., California has two representatives upon that Region 1 team (its own top-recruiting man and its own top-recruiting woman). However, the "National" pair of 1 man + 1 woman ultimate top-recruiters within all of Region 1 are not allowed to be both of those Region 1 leaders who are both from California. The same thing applies in the other Regions, i.e., Region 3's most populated State is Texas, so Texas will get both one man and one woman upon that Region 3 team, but again, the corresponding "National" leaders from Region 3 cannot be both of those two regional leaders from Texas. Region 4's most populated State is Illinois. Region 5's most populated State is Florida. For Region 6, it is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with this same special treatment. And for Region 7, it is obviously New York as the most populated State in that Region which gets this same special treatment. In this way, out of all 56 highest leaders (42 of which are "only" Regional, and those other 14 who are those National leadership gender pairs from each Region), that allows for each and every State and Commonwealth to have direct representation within its own matching regional team (remember, National leaders are still Regional leaders, too), but with those extra six roles (beyond the basic 50) coming from those corresponding most populated States and Commonwealth. Clear as mud? Don't even worry about it yet... Just recruit as much as you can as fast as you can, anyway, and the chips will fall where they may.
Lastly, while almost all of the CAPRA membership registrations are expected to use referral/recruitment Codes, so as to properly credit individual communication army leaders (Members of CAPRA) for their personal army recruiting efforts, there is also a generic Code made available to use by people who only see a social network or other type of "share" out there, i.e., without ever actually being given a personal recruiting Code. Each such use of the generic Code will be attributed to a "catch-all kitty" and then the total of this catch-all Code will be equally and/or proportionately divided up and out to all Members of CAPRA upon final settlement, just like the regular leadership base shares and recruitment bonuses. However, we strongly urge that all qualified registrants who join CAPRA to always please give proper credit to the existing CAPRA leaders who have recruited them on board, by using each personal Code as available, whenever available, and to only use the generic Code to join CAPRA as a last resort when no personal Code has been provided.
