Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. 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. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guests are Alexis & Justin Black from Gaylord, Michigan, both proud foster care alumni as well as recent graduates, authors, and business owners. Together, they've created 'ROSE (Rising Over Societal Expectations) Empowerment Group', a company structured to close the information gap for young adults as well as 'The Scholarship Expert' where they support students to graduate debt-free while obtaining the skills needed to be successful. Now, they are releasing 'Redefining Normal: How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds and Discovered Healing, Happiness and Love' to share their story of how they've had to redefine what love and healthy relationships look like. In 'Redefining Normal' Justin and Alexis describe discovering normalcy and finding the meaning of love based upon their experiences in the child welfare system. The two started their journey faced with the barriers of abuse, neglect, and addiction. Their environment shaped their identity and plagued their growth. After recognizing the toxic generational patterns placed upon them by family and society, they were forced to accept the task of redefining themselves and the world in the midst of their love story. Who could overcome the depths of the foster care system and find love on the other side? 'Redefining Normal' is a story of beating the odds and creating a life worth living. The book will force you to question your idea of what is normal and who/what shaped your identity no matter your life story, background, or culture. It also touches on mental health, race, communication, and generational curses.
