Our Children’s Studies Center for Research, Policy and Public Service convened the National Consultation – “Social Justice for Children: To End Child Abuse and Violence Against Children”, held at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York on November 4th, and it was most successful. It was fitting that on the 20th anniversary of our founding the interdisciplinary field of Children’s Studies instead of celebrating, we focused on the epidemic conditions of violence against children in our nation and issued a call for national dialogue and action. For your and the Section member’s interest, here is the link to the Consultation website: http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/childrensstudies/nationalconsultation2011/
Here is also the PR Newswire and press release about the Consultation.
