The events will take place at various locations in Saginaw for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

One of the events is the CAN Council’s Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month Kick-off. Abby Scherzer is the Public Awareness and Donor Relations Manager for CAN Council.

“The CAN Council, stands for child abuse and neglect, is an organization that is working to eliminate child abuse and neglect in the Great Lakes Bay Region, and we do that by providing child abuse prevention education, also by advocating for children who are in the foster care system under court jurisdiction.”
