Tonight's special guest is Mike Tikkanen from Minnesota, a returning NAASCA family member who founded KARA ("Kids at Risk Action"). He's also the author of the free book "Invisible Children; the American cycle of abuse and its cost." Mike explains, "The need for civic involvement of young future community leaders is the solution to America's 'At Risk Youth' problem. Without today's college students understanding and support, schools will continue to fail, streets to be unsafe, and jails to fill." Mike addresses the social and political child protection problems and solutions that need action now. He speaks at local and national venues and has been the keynote speaker at business, community, and religious organizations. He lead a workshop at the United Nations in New York addressing the rights of children. Since 1996, he's volunteered in the Guardian ad-Litem program as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and has worked with many 'Invisible Children' who are part of the County Child Protection System. Mike is passionate about improving the treatment of abused and neglected children and has formed the non-profit "Kid's At Risk Action" (KARA) to bring public awareness to children's rights and form action groups to improve public policy towards at-risk children.
