Prevent Child Abuse America talks to the Boise, ID office of the Public News Service.
Prevent Child Abuse America's Senior Director of Strategic Communications Ben Tanzer who will speaking at the 2011 Strengthening Families Training Institute in Boise, Idaho on March 16th recently had the opportunity to talk to the Boise office of the Public News Service about healthy child development, building a prosperous Idaho, social movements and preventing child abuse and neglect.
"Create a movement for children and families, and a movement that not only enhances healthy child development; to really engage people in a dialogue on how we prevent child abuse and neglect before it ever starts."
Tanzer says preventing child abuse and neglect is in everyone's best interest because it is tied to the larger values Idahoans treasure.
"We want to live in a certain kind of Idaho that is prosperous, that is healthy. Here are the things we are going to do for children and families, because we know that when we don't prevent child abuse and neglect, all of those other things get undermined."
