Darkness to Light, a child sex abuse prevention nonprofit, is presenting Ignite 2017, a conference that will spread sex abuse prevention methods.
The conference will take place on Oct. 10-11 at the Boy Scouts of America Atlanta Area Council at 1800 Circle 75 Parkway SE in Atlanta. The gathering will feature many child sexual abuse experts from all over the country who will provide training that will help attendees learn skills that can prevent molestation in their communities.
Patty Dailey Lewis, the executive director of The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children, will be one of the conference presenters. She will present a segment entitled, "How to Respond When a Child Sexual Abuse Crisis Affects Your Community."
The Beau Biden Foundation was created in honor of former Vice President Joe Biden's late son, Joseph R. “Beau” Biden, III. The foundation holds many convictions that Biden did about protecting children as the core of their operation, such as that "no child should be threatened by a predator – either an adult or a peer – and that child abuse is preventable."
