The host of Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week, is Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder and CEO of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Originally he was best known for Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP), his reaction to the events of 9-11-2001. Bill's web site (LACP.org) has been continuously published since early 2002, and is the world's largest grassroots nonprofit effort devoted to community-based policing. In 2009, Bill launched the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org) as a grassroots effort, one based on his personal life experienced. "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping," Bill writes. "But I have, and for over 30 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects. Once my parents were gone, I decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." After years of operating as a grassroots, all volunteer effort, and with over 1600 BlogTalkRadio shows in the ever-growing library, NAASCA became a public charity .. a 501(c)3 .. where the single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. Join host Bill Murray six-nights-a-week (all but Saturday), at 8pm EST (7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. These shows always include panel discussions, LIVE chat rooms, and frequent call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Charmaine (Loverin) Saucedo from Toronto, Ontario, a child abuse survivor, activist and educator. A returning NAASCA family member, Charmaine last appeared with us in May 2013, and is here to let us know what she's been up to since. Among other things, she wants us to know about her current iChoose prevention and intervention skills training for ages 5 - 14 and their in-home or online 2 hour parent workshops about empowering children. Charmaine's own story has been both published & heard around the world. "I experienced sexual, physical and emotional abuse from ages 5 - 15 and became an introvet," Charmaine says. She wouldn't let anyone in and was isolated and suicidal. She lacked self worth and her values were compromised through sexual deviance and choices. "I started on my healing journey first by finding women groups related to child sex abuse in my early 20's, she explains. "It was there when I witnessed a woman twice my age and a younger girl to whom I could relate." It altered her journey because she didn't want to be still terribly impacted 20 years later. "I then next found a psychotherapist who for 3 years helped me through the process of charging one of my offenders and receiving compensation for victims of criminal injury .. all in the early 20's." The words Charmaine lives by are from her child Pastor, "God will always hold your hand when you tell the truth." She proactively continues her self / professional development to enrich and enhance her purpose of empowering ALL human beings towards their own Power of Choice. See her YouTube video here.
