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 guest is Sally Linn from Washington State, founder and speaker at 'Truth Speaks, LLC', where they feature Sexual Assault Prevention Webinars & Presentations. The mission of Truth Speaks is to speak the truth about sexual harassment, abuse, and assault in a non-threatening environment, to produce change. Sally was trained as the teen Sexual Assault Prevention Educator at Rebuilding Hope! Sexual Assault Center for Pierce County. She's a member of the Washington Coalition for Sexual Assault Programs, and the Pierce County Commission Against Domestic Violence. She is the former co-chair on the Education/Awareness Committee of the Pierce County Anti-Trafficking Network. Sally has a message for victims and survivors: "Know that I believe you. This terrible thing did happen. You did nothing to deserve this. This is all the attacker's fault. This is NOT your fault. I'm sorry they chose to hurt you. And to all males reading this: there is absolutely NO evidence that sexual abuse of boys leads them to abuse others. That is a MYTH, and it needs to die. Also, yes, assault by a female is possible and does happen. You are not less of a man, or less innocent than female victims/survivors. I believe you. This isn't just a ‘women's issue.' It's an issue for all humanity." She goes on, "You are not alone. So many have gone through this. So many have experienced healing from this trauma, also. But they have healed on their own time, in their own way. Grief is perfectly healthy."
