THE NORTHERN PLAINS CHILDREN'S ADVOCACY CENTER TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR CHILD ABUSE WITH INAUGURAL SAVE JANE EVENT
The Grand Hotel - July 12, 2021 - Members of the Minot community will join the NPCAC in taking a stand against child abuse at the Grand Hotel with our first Save Jane event.
For 2 hours straight, volunteers from the Minot area will read the names and ages of 445 children who were reported as criminally abused in Ward County and surrounding areas in 2020. Because these children are minors and their identities are protected, "Jane Doe" and "John Doe" will be used in place of their names. The Save Jane inaugural event launched in Dallas in 2019. This is the first year for the NPCAC to join in the awareness effort.
"The NPCAC hopes that through Save Jane, Minot will recognize the absolute magnitude and prevalence of child abuse in North Dakota - it is everywhere you look," said Christal Halseth. "It will take 2+ hours of non-stop reading to name each child who was criminally abused and brought into our center last year. That is simply unacceptable. We never stop fighting for these children who have suffered unspeakable abuse. The NPCAC will continue to do our work, but we need the community's help."
The NPCAC is made up of expert clinicians and MDT members. They bring together a heroic team to fight for the most severe child abuse victims in the state. MDT members consist of law enforcement investigators, child protection services, prosecutors, medical personnel, therapists, and advocates, all who are considered experts in their fields. Together, they work to restore hope and help children to focus on what really matters - being a kid.
Influential leaders, MDT members, and NPCAC board members will read the names throughout the event. The NPCAC welcomes all of Minot and surrounding communities to take a turn on-stage and participate in this impactful event by reading a selection of names. To volunteer to read names, please contact Christal Halseth, NPCAC Executive Director at email@example.com..
