When we work collectively to build safe, stable, nurturing relationships for children, families, and communities where children can thrive, we all share the benefits of a more prosperous state and a more hopeful future. Across North Carolina, organizations and individuals are working toward making this possible by implementing innovative programs and strategies, advocating for policies that put families first, and making the wise investments today that will pay dividends for future generations. With nationally recognized speakers and a diverse array of workshops, Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina's Learning & Leadership Summit will offer insight into the latest research, strategies for increasing protective factors, effective implementation, public awareness, and advocacy.
