On September 18, we will be hosting our first Pa Child Abuse Prevention Symposium, a day-long event for professionals and volunteers who work with children. Our organization is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, and we could not think of a better way to celebrate than spending a day focusing on our mission: child abuse prevention and how we can all work together to protect
Pennsylvania’s children. 


The symposium will feature three nationally acclaimed speakers and child advocates who specialize in child abuse prevention:

·  Liz Murray, author of her memoir, Breaking Night, will start the day by sharing
her inspiring story, as our keynote speaker, and then conduct breakout sessions
throughout the day on the topic of responsive relationships 

· Victor Vieth, Director of Education and Research at Zero Abuse Project will conduct
breakout sessions on the topics of faith & how organizations can keep
children safe

· Jane Straub, Victim Assistance Specialist for the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center
will conduct breakout sessions on the topics of vicarious trauma and effects of
sexual harm 

All attendees will receive a copy of Liz Murray’s memoir and lunch will be provided.
