[SUPREME] Advisory: CASA Day at Indiana State House
Start Date: 2/25/2014 All Day
End Date: 2/25/2014
Entry Description

Volunteers from Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) will gather at the Indiana State House to show support for the program and to interact with legislators about important issues facing children. CASA volunteers advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children whose families are involved with the child welfare system.

Indiana State House
Indianapolis
South Atrium 2nd floor
Monday, March 3rd
12:00 p.m. EST

There are nearly 3,500 CASA volunteers in 78 Indiana counties advocating on behalf of 17,000 abused and neglected children. The gathering is expected to include approximately 300 CASA volunteers from across the state. The goal is to draw attention to the need for more CASA volunteers and the importance of their role as a voice for vulnerable children and to give volunteers a chance to meet with lawmakers.

The program will include remarks from Indiana Supreme Court Justice Loretta Rush.  CASA volunteers from Tippecanoe and Montgomery Counties, along with their former CASA children will share their inspiring stories.  One of the children, now a young adult, will perform a rap about being a CASA kid.

The event is being sponsored by the Indiana Child Advocates Network and the State Office of GAL/CASA, of the Indiana Supreme Court, Division of State Court Administration.
