TexProtects' 10th Anniversary featuring Ashley Judd
Actress Ashley Judd will be the keynote speaker at TexProtects’ 10th Anniversary Celebration. Judd, who detailed her own childhood trauma in her memoir, All That is Bitter and Sweet, also will attend a reception for lead sponsors and members of our Board of Directors, chaired by John Castle.
TexProtects will also present its 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award to Texas Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, an outstanding leader in the Texas Legislature for protecting victims of child abuse. We will honor Senator Nelson for her work to increase Texas’ investment in prevention programs, such as the Nurse-Family Partnership, which sends nurses on home visits to help vulnerable, low-income mothers as well as her hard work to reform CPS.
Through advocacy, research and education, TexProtects has assisted and/or led the passage of over 37 bills that have improved the Child Protective Services system and advocated for and secured $71 million for voluntary family support home visitation programs, which currently service over 20,,000 families across Texas.
Table sponsorship begins at $2,500. Seating is limited.
