Senator Arthur Orr to Present Check to Child Defend

August 28, 2013

ATHENS, Ala. - Senator Arthur Orr will present a check to Child Defend through the Alabama Department of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention (ADCANP) on Friday, September 6 at 10:45 a.m. in the Parlor of Founders Hall on the Athens State campus.

Child Defend, a Huntsville-based collaborative program with Athens State University, was founded to advocate for children who are victims of crime and secure grants for those non-profits servicing them.

The organization administers an online Legal Resource Center for judges and attorneys work involved in child abuse cases. The website provides these pro bono legal professionals and mentors with access to established legal research.

Historically, the ADCANP secures resources to fund evidence-based community programs committed to the prevention of child maltreatment. We advocate for children and the strengthening of families.

Arthur Orr is State Senator for Alabama’s District 3 which incorporates Morgan County and parts of Limestone and Madison Counties.
