Our guest today on Morning Line: Polly Andrews shared about the Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Awareness Month Commencement, April 2nd at 12:30 – an event hosted by Southcentral Foundation kicking off the Awareness Month.
Andrews says statistics for this year show an increase of 107% in reporting of child maltreatment in the past decade - a statistic that has two sides: one is tragic in that the abuse is happening, the other is that the reporting and dialogue is happening.
Andrews says talking about these issues is an important step in breaking cycles of historical trauma that seem to connect different kinds of social ills.
