The C4C Committee is excited to announce a call for workshop proposals for the 2020 Champion for Children Conference, March 31 - April 1, 2020, in Abilene, TX, at the Abilene Convention Center. The theme of the conference is “Spring into Action!”.

We welcome workshop proposals that focus on the uniqueness and value of child abuse specific programs and services. Proposals that engage in a culturally resonant approach to traditionally undeserved populations and those that involve interactive learning techniques and innovative methods are encouraged.

Categories for this years conference should draw on best available research and/or prevention practices and include information about impact of featured efforts to strengthen and engage communities in prevention of child abuse.

-- Survivor Services – focus on case studies, successes and lessons learned.
-- Policy and Legal Advocacy – incorporate effective strategies, ideas, or policy analysis for enhancing a survivor's access to legal justice. Topics may be focused on law enforcement investigations and prosecutions, evidence gathering for trial (i.e. forensic exams), survivors' legal and civil rights and remedies, and increasing collaboration among disciplines (i.e. MDTs, human trafficking coalitions) in order to assist survivors in civil/criminal justice processes.
-- Social Justice - focus on addressing the impacts of and responses to systemic violence based on race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, etc.; proposals can include anti-racism work, community organizing, anti-oppression, reproductive justice, etc.
