DEC. 7 HEARING ON CHILD PROTECTION AND PUBLIC SAFETY ACT CANCELLED

 

The December 7 hearing on The Child Protection and Public Safety Act has been cancelled.  The hearing will be rescheduled for January 2011.  The Senate Judiciary Committee will convene at that time to continue the review of Article 7 - Delinquency.  

 

Please remember that your presence at these hearings is critical to ensuring that restorative justice is the primary goal for Georgia's children.  You can also support Georgia's children and JUSTGeorgia in this effort by contacting asking your state senator to attend the hearing if he/she sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  The full committee is provided in the link below.

SPIRITUAL WITNESS FOR CHILDREN

One of the most important things faith communities can do for children is to pray for them.

 

Every child is a child of God and deserves justice and compassion. Every child deserves our prayers. 

 

ICM encourages every faith community to become a spiritual witness for children. Hold a worship service in your church, synagogue, mosque or temple and invite others to join in praying for the well-being of all children.

ICM Mission and Goals

 

The Interfaith Children's Movement was formed in 2001 as an intentional association of individuals and communities of faith from all religious traditions. 

 

The Interfaith Children's Movement strives to be a voice for all Georgia children, but especially the poor and marginalized whose voices are often unheard.  

 

ICM works closely with Georgia's policy-oriented child advocacy organizations, such as: 

  • Voices for Georgia's Children, 

  • The Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic at Emory University, 

  • Georgia Appleseed, 

  • JUSTGeorgia, 

  • Prevent Child Abuse Georgia and 

  • A Future.Not a Past. (child prostitution prevention).  

These organizations set the agenda for our advocacy work for children.  

ICM's faith community members provide a megaphone to the legislature about what needs to be done for children.
