Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week feature Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder 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 some 35 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 2500 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 our hosts 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 Nancy V Brown from Atlanta, Georgia, a child sexual abuse survivor who now serves NAASCA as our West Virginia Ambassador. At age 5 Nancy was sexually abused several times by an older family member. She told her mother what happened, but where she lived in Costa Rican culture sexual abuse was viewed as bringing shame to the family and therefore most victims are encouraged to keep it a secret. Due to this, Nancy kept the family secret of her abuse for most of her life, but the trauma severely affected her. She ended up dropping out of school in 8th grade, running away, and entering the juvenile justice and foster care systems. After becoming a teen mother she turned her life around by focusing on her education and career. Behind the successes she kept hidden her struggles with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and chronic nightmares. She finally decided to write her book, 'My Costa Rican Humming Bird Sings', to address the question ?why do victims feel ashamed for being victims?? and to help other survivors to hold on to hope and not give up. Nancy says, ?If I can survive so can you. You are NOT alone.? The book shares her life story of family, abuse, teenage pregnancy, divorce, single motherhood, racism, alcoholism and more .. and the the unending power of God's unconditional love. "I turned my life around completely," she says. "One thing I always avoided was sharing my very messy, painful and dark past until God called me out to serve people like me. He said to me 'how dare you survive and not help someone else survive?'"
