Child Abuse Prevention Effort Gets Underway
The Children’s Advocacy Centers™ of Texas, Inc. (CACTX) kicked off an important child abuse awareness campaign dubbed, “The One with Courage.” This campaign is a nation-wide initiative that focuses on the courage of speaking up about instances of child abuse and the vital role of Children’s Advocacy Centers, not only in providing guidance and support to child abuse victims, but also in aiding in future legal actions against those who commit child abuse.
This much awaited undertaking is an effort to educate Texans on how to recognize and report child abuse and involves enlisting the help of some of the state’s highly respected and recognizable college football head coaches.
University of Texas Coach Mack Brown, Tony Levine of the University of Houston, and Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin have come together to release a state-wide new public service announcement urging Texans to “be the one with courage to recognize and report child abuse.” The announcement also details the warning signs of suspected abuse.
The PSA can be viewed in several different formats, both in audio and video, here.
