This year’s Annual Community Roundtable Training was a SOLD OUT EVENT.

Micah’s Promise had the privilege to welcome in a special keynote speaker. Former Special Victims’ Detective Kevin McNeil is an author and speaker that uses his unique combinations of experiences to share a powerful message about Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking.

Former Detective Kevin McNeil was presented with with a proclamation from the City of Columbus. Mr. McNeil presented us with his own personal survivor story and insight on how the judicial system treats other survivors. He shared on the difficulty of boys and men to disclose about child abuse. Finally he ended strongly with a call for proactive demand reduction efforts.

A matter-of-fact discussion on the cost of paying for judicial and rehabilitation costs versus a proactive approach of demand reduction efforts.

Kevin McNeil has also written several books for advocates, families and children that walk the reader through the signs, effects, and ways to combat the sexual abuse of children.

Community Advocates from around our city and state were in the room as well. It was a great time to see the collaborative nature of our community in action: sharing knowledge, motivating each other, and addressing the big picture.

You can get involved too.
