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 Jennifer Corona from Houston, Texas, a returning NAASCA family member who was last with us in 2014. "I am a survivor of 30 years of multiple types of abuse. Throughout the years I managed to continue pursuing my goals & achieved by far more than I could have ever imagined." A paralegal and author, she's an activist, advocate, speaker and mentor for victims of domestic and sexual abuse. "My greatest desire is to become an attorney to help victims more." She explains, "I speak at colleges, several different organizations and where ever I am called to." Jennifer certainly has a lot of experience. Childhood molestation by one of her uncles began for her at age 4. It continued through her mid teenage years. By that time it included two uncles and two cousins. "At age 10 I began to have black outs mostly when I was in school," she says. "My vision would come back slowly, first black and white, then full color. Age 13, I tried to end my life. At age 14 I almost got raped by an ex boyfriend. At age 15 the physical abuse began, and it continued till I was 28." Her adult years weren't much better. Now, among other things, Jennifer counts her blessings as a mother in a blended and extended family. But 2017 was a tough year for her. She had surgery and ended a relationship with a narcissist. In April of 2018 Jennifer married her best friend, also a survivor. They are writing a book together, SCARS, a combination of both of their testimonies and the journey through the pain, suffering and heartache "that ultimately led to redemption, restoration, reconstruction, forgiveness, endless hope, mustard seed faith, unseen tears, unspoken words, and numerous prayers." She concludes, "Greatest thing of all, we survived!"
