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.

CACTX to Honor Texas Governor Greg Abbott and First Lady Cecilia Abbott

Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas, Inc. (CACTX) will host the biennial Partners in Courage Dinner and Awards Ceremony on January 29, 2019 in conjunction with CACTX Capitol Day. Texas Governor Greg Abbott and First Lady Cecilia Abbott will be honored with the 2019 Partners in Courage Award, an honor that is bestowed upon state leaders who courageously champion children’s advocacy centers (CAC) and Texas children in the fight against child abuse. First Lady Cecilia Abbott will be accepting the award on their behalf. This upcoming event will mark the first year that a couple has been recognized with the Partners in Courage Award. CACTX honors the Abbotts as “partners in courage” who represent commitment at the state level that is equivalent to the profound courage that child victims of abuse possess when they walk through the doors of a CAC.
