U.S. Senator John Cornyn Visits CAC and Discusses Child Sexual Abuse Training Legislation

CACTX and the Center for Child Protection hosted U.S. Senator John Cornyn for a roundtable on April 17th to discuss the importance of training on recognizing, reporting, and preventing child sexual abuse. Senator Cornyn recently filed the Jenna Quinn Law that would authorize federal funding for training programs, like those at Texas CACs, via federal grants through the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act. This new funding opportunity could help sustain our CAC network’s ability to ensure school employees, parents, children, and community members are trained in preventing, recognizing, and reporting abuse.
