TN Child Advocacy Bootcamp
What does child advocacy have to do with languages? I’m sure some of you reading this are asking yourself this or even screaming this question at the monitor as you read. The answer depends on your profession.
If you are in education, law, psychology, pediatric medicine, and the social sciences it has everything to do with you. Therefore, I felt the need to post a flyer for an upcoming conference in Jackson, TN.
The conference is called Advocacy Boot-camp. It will be on Friday, December 3rd. The camp will allow attendees to learn about basic legislation, funding, and attaining other resources available to assist in informing state legislators on issues regarding child well being. Now, for those of you reading this; this is for residents of Tennessee only. Do not let this discourage you, however. I suggest you find out if there is a state office for the Commission on Children and Youth. Then, sign up to get information on workshops. I have been to one on children whose parent was a victim of domestic violence and I learned some things that many of us take for granted.
For those of you from Tennessee, here is the information: 2010-12-03 – Advocacy Boot Camp – Event Flyer
