To Prevent Child Sexual Abuse
March 8, 2016     
6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Ohio University Southern
Bowman Auditorium
Ironton, OH
 
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face with the most serious array of  consequences. Statistically, in our community, 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before reaching his or her 18th birthday.  Hope’s Place Child Advocacy Center serves child victims of sexual abuse.
 
Learn how to help prevent child sexual abuse and the impact of an estimated 40 million victims in the U.S. by registering today for an upcoming “Stewards of Children” workshop.
 
The next workshop is set for March 8 in the Bowman Auditorium at Ohio University Southern. The workshop, created by Darkness to Light, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child sexual abuse, is being hosted by Hope’s Place Child Advocacy Center and Ohio University Southern. Please call 606-325-4737 or 740-533-4548 to register. Individuals may register online:

The cost of the workshop is free thanks to the generous support of Hope’s Place and Ohio University Southern. The training is open to the public and is of specific interest among teachers, students, counselors, parents, youth sports organizations, coaches, camp counselors, youth service organizations, school personnel, and faith centers. The two-hour workshop is designed to educate adults on how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse.
 
Anne Lee, Founder and President of Darkness to Light, says public education is an essential tool to provide real impact to prevent sexual abuse of children. She points to leading research that shows educating five-percent of a community’s adult population can create a “tipping point” toward societal behavior change. This tipping point carries momentum throughout the community to further spread awareness and make preventing sexual abuse the norm.

The Underground Railroad in Burlington and Ironton, Ohio
Instructor:  Chris Saunders
 
The state of Ohio had the most active network of the Underground Railroad than any other state in the Union.  Lawrence County, the southernmost county in Ohio, bordered the slave states of Virginia and Kentucky.  Countless enslaved African-Americans first tasted freedom after crossing the Ohio River into Burlington and Ironton, Ohio.
 
This session, using primary sources, will identify and give biographical sketches of the individuals of various ethnicities and religious beliefs who worked together in an informal network of safe houses and escape routes to help enslaved African-Americans to freedom in the northern states and Canada.
 
The objective of this session is to bring local history to life and to remember the sacrifices made by the men and women in the nation’s first civil rights movement.  Following the sessions, attendees will have a better understanding of the lives of those persecuted by the peculiar institution of slavery.  They will learn about the lives of several prominent abolitionists and Underground Railroad conductors, their sacrifices, and the escape routes they used.
