STAND WITH FAMILIES- Central Illinois
Join us Sunday, October 6 from 5:30 to 7:30pm for our annual Central Illinois event. This year's event, called Stand with Families, celebrates the Family Justice Resource Center's pioneering work to protect children and families. The featured speakers are Colin White, a retired Illinois State Trooper, and Doug Parrott, the President of the Bank of Toulon. Both are grandfathers whose families each experienced wrongful allegations of child abuse due to their grandchildren's medical conditions. We will also hear from our Executive Director, Michelle Weidner, who will present on our new initiative— the creation of a national bipartisan coalition focused on advocating for legislation to require full and fair medical evaluations in child abuse investigations.
The event will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and a chance to mingle with families and fellow professionals who share your commitment to protecting both children and families.
