On Monday, May 13th, youthSpark hosted its annual Town Hall Legislative Wrap-Up Breakfast at North Avenue Presbyterian Church. Special thanks to Attorney General Sam Olens and our panelists Senator Renee Unterman, Representative Ed Lindsey, and Sharon Hill of Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice. WABE’s Rose Scott moderated the panel discussion and highlighted the 2013 legislation, as well as the importance of ongoing research and evaluation.
We were honored to present Attorney General Sam Olens with a special award for his leadership of the “Georgia’s Not Buying It” Campaign and his commitment to stopping the demand for prostituted children in the state of Georgia.
We were thrilled to present Kaffie McCullough with the Inaugural Kaffie McCullough Advocacy Award for her outstanding contributions to keep all children safe. This award will be presented annually at our Legislative Wrap-Up Breakfast.
Thanks to everyone who attended this special event. We appreciate North Avenue Presbyterian Church for hosting us!
