Freedom to love your family members is our constitutional right and the court should not make that decision for us. I went through this with my grandmother I was able to finally get her out of the conservatorship and she flourished! She lived five more years and went to heaven smiling when we got her out of the conservatorship."

"It is disgusting that the courts allow this man to be held in captivity by a stranger who is isolating him from his loved ones & his life. This is psychopathic, by very definition. You need to release him from the control of your dirty court systems, or at least release him into the care of his loving daughter, Libra. We have a growing movement of people who will stop at nothing until judges across this country STOP participating in inhumane guardianships, and right now? #FreePeterMax is at the top of our To-Do list. FREE HIM NOW!!!!"

"I met Peter at The Gateway School when he came to speak about his artwork, animal advocacy and more. I was only 10 but I had the pleasure of speaking to him for a few moments and I’ll never forget how warm, intelligent, passionate, and above all- how kind he was. Peter is an icon, not only for his artwork but for his work as a human being. He is deteriorating alone. This is beyond cruel. He has been swept under the rug and forgotten. Please help while he still has years left."
