Please join us...
On behalf of Prevent Child Abuse West Virginia and our 40 community teams who are working with more than 42,000 children, parents and community citizens statewide, you are cordially invited to a legislative breakfast on Tuesday, Jan. 10th, 2012, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Charleston Marriott.
We hope that you will be our guest for a discussion about specific policy proposals that help prevent child abuse and neglect BEFORE it occurs.
Our guest speaker, Jetta Bernier, is a national expert on preventing child sexual abuse such as the high profile cases that occurred at Penn State and elsewhere.
Ms. Bernier directs the Enough Abuse Campaign, a growing, nationally recognized initiative to prevent child sexual abuse that has been working in Massachusetts since 2002. The Enough Abuse Campaign is a comprehensive citizen education and community mobilization effort, which the federal Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has hailed as "a trailblazing effort." Its emphasis on community collaboration, according to the Ms. Foundation, "truly sets it apart from previous efforts."
Please RSVP today and plan to join us for this important conversation about how we can protect every child in West Virginia from the tragedy of child sexual abuse.
