The Richland County Court Appointed Special Advocates (RC CASA) invite you to attend a press conference and presentation at the entrance to the Richland County Judicial Center, 1701 Main Street in Columbia on Wednesday, April 17th at 9:30 AM. This event is in observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month and honoring RC CASA’s 30 years of advocacy and guardianship of abused and neglected children. In Richland County alone, over 1,000 children each year enter the child protection system after suffering maltreatment.
Featured speakers will include Michel Piraino, CEO National CASA Association; Sue Williams, Executive Director of Children’s Trust of South Carolina; Harry Davis of the Children’s Law Center and Sherriff Leon Lott. This annual gathering is for community leaders and partners to publicly demonstrate their commitment to eradicating child abuse and neglect in our community.
Please join us in celebrating 30 years of RC CASA service and giving a voice to abused and neglected children. For more information, contact Executive Director Paige Greene at 576-1723.
