ANNOUNCEMENT - After much consideration, due to the current situation and in accordance with continued social distancing measures, we have decided to cancel the 27th Annual Child Abuse Prevention Luncheon and Awards Celebration. We know how much everyone looks forward to joining our colleagues, supporters, and advocates each year during this event, and we too are disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to celebrate our work together again this year.

Ebony Bland

About Our Keynote Speaker

Ebony Bland received the ACE Award (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) from  the Jacksonville Beaches Exchange Club in 2017 and is now a Junior at Florida State University with a bright future ahead for her and 2-year-old son Morris, but things have not always been so easy. Ebony will share her story of a childhood filled with uncertainty which ultimately led to her removal from her mother's home on her 17th birthday, along with three younger siblings. Although Ebony's mom was offered assistance prior to that fateful day when DCF knocked on her door, reunification with her mother and siblings was never to be. 

Join us at the 27th Annual Child Abuse Prevention Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, March 18th to hear Ebony's story of a difficult childhood and the ultimate trauma of being separated from the only family she had ever known, and why she believes there is a better way to help families struggling to stay together.
