Alabama CASA State Conference: Tools for Effective Advocacy
October 22, 2015
The Alabama Court Appointed Special Advocates state conference, titled “Tools for Effective Advocacy,” will take place Oct. 22 at Canterbury United Methodist Church in Mountain Brook. The keynote speaker will be Gary Bentley.
Bentley was just 10 years old when he was placed in foster care and hospitalized for open heart surgery. During his hospitalization, he met Nurse Kathy who, “went above the duty of a nurse with her smile.” After four decades, Bentley was reunited with Nurse Kathy. He will share his experience in foster care and the impact that one single person had on his life.
The Tools for Effective Advocacy conference will be a great learning experience for CASA staff, volunteers, guardian ad litems, judges, teachers and counselors. Alabama CASA invites anyone who believes in society’s role of recognizing, preventing, and speaking up for the abused and neglected children to attend this event.
