Rozzi to host child abuse prevention seminar

READING, Jan. 5 – State Rep. Mark Rozzi will host a free event to teach parents how to prevent, recognize and react to child sexual abuse from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 22.

The free event will be held at Muhlenberg Middle School, 400 Sharp Ave., Temple. The event is open to the public.

The training session will be offered by Darkness to Light and the Berks County YMCA and feature a combination of survivor stories, expert advice and practical guidance.

“I am proud to partner with Darkness to Light to open the conversation on this tragic topic. As difficult as it is to discuss, we have to bring it to the forefront to better protect children from abuse and to help those who have been abused,” Rozzi explained. “Prevention education is essential to breaking the cycle of abuse.”

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held Jan. 29 at the same time and location.
