The Children’s Advocacy Center: The Emmy Haney House will present their inaugural Talk About: Creating Conversations About Child Abuse on Saturday, April 6. The event will begin at the their facility, 5705 Uptain Road in Chattanooga in the FJC Community Room at 9 a.m.
"After the talk, then the real effort begins," organizers said. "Teams of volunteers, led by law enforcement, will go door to door and distribute door hangers with life-saving information regarding resources to prevent, educate and report child abuse.
"Our goal is simple: get the right information to the right people at the right time to help children.
