Open Your Eyes: Reasons, Responsibilities, and Responses to Combat Child Sexual Exploitation Symposium for the Faith Community

Bringing awareness and education to the faith based community, this symposium will feature Ms. Shea M. Rhodes, Esquire (Director, CSE Institute, Villanova Law School), Ms. Deb Colton (Founder & President of Oasis of Hope), Ms. Heather Shnyder (Prevention Education Specialist, Transitions of PA), and a survivor as the speakers of the day. The moderator will be Senior Magisterial District Judge James Sortman (Chair, Lycoming County Human Trafficking Response Team and Member, PAATH15).

Registration will open at 8:00 am and the first speaker will start at 8:30 am. Lunch will be provided. Following the symposium's conclusion at 2:00 pm, each attendee is invited to join the free Mandated Reporter Training, from 2-4 pm. Each person who completes this training will receive a five-year certification.

NOTE: A reminder that all those who work with children and/or youth (under age 18 years) in a faith setting (e.g. church, mosque, synagogue), whether paid staff or volunteers, must undergo training and be certified as mandated reporters according to Pennsylvania law.

Registration for the symposium closes on January 13th, or when capacity is reached. Please contact Jim Sortman at jhsortman@gmail.com with any questions.
