Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
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.

Tonight's special guest is Malisia (Mia) McKinney from Jasper, Indiana, a child abuse survivor and abuse advocate. "Sexual abuse deceives a child's mind in many ways," she writes. "I often look upon it as being placed in a concrete cell with no windows or doors, packed full of people I could not trust. As the years went on the people of the cell multiplied, but the room became smaller. When I became an adult I didn't know how to think outside that cell until someone before me showed me the secret door to freedom." Mia knows what she's talking about. "I was sexually and physically abused by my mother and other family members," she says. "My mother used to say to me, 'If you tell anyone they will take you away and kill you. They will believe your evil and (you) made me do it!' I grew up thinking people would hate me if I told." Mia goes on, "When we hold the secrets of abuse it pours out in many aspects of our lives." But Mia turned a corner, "I remember the first time I told. I was shaking on the inside and wondered if my world would end. In fact, my world did end! My posture changed! I no longer had severe headaches! The world my abuser built for me came down and I slowly crawled out from the rubble. I began to grow into who I was meant to be before the abuse shadowed everything in my life." Eight years into her healing journey Mia writes, "No, it's not going to be easy, but I promise the outcome is worth the effort." She concludes, "Remember you are not alone. There's a group of courageous men and women, survivors on the same journey, who will gladly take your hand and lead you out of that cage."
