Speaker: Child Abuse

Posted on October 8, 2015

Our dinner meeting guest speaker on October 6 was Ms. Kay Corbett.  Kay is the author of “Calla Lilies: A True Story of Four Sisters and Their Struggle to Survive Abuse, Addiction, and Poverty in America.”  We learned about life-long struggles of young people who suffer abuse, as told from Kay’s perspective as step-mother of 4 abused girls, and the insensitivity of our justice system to such problems.  Of note: Fairfax County has set aside funding as a test to help treat victims of abuse who are now incarcerated; Kay considers this a big step forward.
