The Children & Family Advocacy Center invites donors, sponsors, and members of our community to join us for our Restoring Lives: Evening of Impact on Thursday, September 7th at Rogers Convention Center. Throughout the evening, we will reflect on our center’s work, honor those who help us impact the community and look ahead to our organization’s future.
We are humbled to welcome guest speaker Erin Merryn to this year’s event. Erin is an internationally recognized author, speaker, and child abuse advocate and activist. She earned her MSW from Aurora University. For six years of her childhood she was sexually abused keeping her secret locked away in her childhood diary. Before graduating high school Erin published her diary into a book called Stolen Innocence. In 2013 she had Erin’s Law, a law that requires personal body safety taught in public schools every year, passed in her home state of Illinois. At the Children & Family Advocacy Center we are proud to offer body safety as one of the many trainings taught by our education team.
