CFSA sponsors policy forum on child abuse and neglect prevention

DC's Child and Family Services Agency is hosting a policy forum on April 28 from 9:00 am - Noon at the National Press Club (529 14th St NW).

"National and Local Perspectives on Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect" will feature local and national experts on abuse and neglect prevention, important not only because April is Child Abuse Prevention Month but more significantly because thousands of children each year in the District are involved with CFSA precisely because someone has mistreated them.

Research and practice clearly show that child abuse and neglect can be prevented.   Attend this event to learn more about the issue and what you, your community, your organization, and your place of worship can do to protect children and strengthen families so abuse and neglect are not an option.   Also learn what is being done via public policy to address this most important issue.
