“Our commitment is resolute that one instance of abuse is too much,” Kirkham said. “We want to create an environment that is safe for everyone. We want to stand together with other community organizations.”
Among the presentations planned for the seminar will be a panel comprised of three survivors of child sexual abuse and a Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta child abuse pediatrician. Various law enforcement leaders, politicians and other community leaders are scheduled to attend, along with those from the Cobb school system. Tyrone Oliver, the commissioner of the department of juvenile justice, is hosting the event.
Members of law enforcement or those in social services are eligible to receive training hours for attending the seminar.
