Awaken to Change - What's Working and What We Are Learning.

Awaken to Change - The National Conference for America's Children

Prevent Child Abuse America's 2012 National Conference

As Prevent Child Abuse celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2012, it will offer a national conference unlike any other. From October 12-15, 2012, Prevent Child Abuse America will integrate emphases on healthy child development, public policy, what's working in child abuse and neglect prevention, and the latest on messaging and corporate responsibility.
