Children's Advocacy Day Set for April 4

The sixth annual Children's Advocacy Day will be held April 4 at 11:30 a.m. at the State House to ring in Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The S.C. Network of Children's Advocacy Centers, along with fellow child advocates Children's Trust and Silent Tears, are partnering for a press conference that will focus on the need for legislators, agencies and organizations to combat child abuse and neglect through prevention, treatment and prosecution.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, who has made a concerted push to prosecute child abuse cases, will be a featured speaker along with Kim Hamm, the executive director of the S.C. Network of Children's Advocacy Centers, and Sue Williams, the Children's Trust CEO.
