On Wednesday, April 29, Illinois CASA held the first annual Hands Across Illinois virtual event for Child Abuse Prevention Month, inaugurated because the COVID-19 crisis interrupted the in-person events typically held at county courthouses around Illinois during April to raise awareness for child abuse prevention. Thousands joined the virtual event which featured 14 speakers, including legislators, judges, Illinois CASA staff, and CASA Volunteers. Participants included CASA volunteers, staff and the general public, who were inspired by the personal stories of those who have seen the positive impact of CASA on children in the child protection system first-hand.
