PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN: The Guardian-ad-Litem Perspective
First up for speakers is Sarah Young from the Guardian ad Litem Office of the Courts. Susan Ikerd vouches for Ms. Young as an exemplary advocate for the GAL program. We will learn a bit about the GAL program, with a strong focus on protecting our most vulnerable children. It ties beautifully into the national AAUW emphasis on promoting equity: our youngest need the voice of those who have the strength, wisdom and stamina to advocate for them. Come ready to ask questions and to chat with other members who are already involved in this program.

For lunch we’ll be providing box lunches from Panera Bread; you’ll have three sandwich choices and two salad choices. The options will be listed in the notice that will go out October 7 so you can immediately call in your reservation and food choice. The lunch cost will be $15 and includes, ice/hot tea, water and coffee.

One more thing: Due to regulations at the Goodwill Center, we are asked to provide your name and birthdate for recording in their system. We’ll only ask for this the first time you reserve, so be prepared. (Actually, I think most of us are proud of the years we have attained.)
