Launching At A Later Date
My name is Connie Lee and I am the Founder/President of the FACSA Foundation (Family and Friends Fighting Against Child Sexual Assault), in Springhill, La. We are a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) status company, with an all volunteer staff. The FACSA Foundation provides support services for families of child sexual assault, such as attorney’s, counselors, support group, guidance, and what each family needs for their case. We also educate the community on prevention of child sexual assault, through our programs such as the Good Touch/Bad Touch Program from ChildHelp USA; Kid’s Safe ID Kit’s from the National Exploited Children’s Foundation; and the FACSA Defense Program, where we go to schools for free to teach teens about abusive dating relationships, warning signs, and 30 minutes of hands on self defense. I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology; I am a public speaker and an event planner.
Launching on a later date, INXPO will present a nationwide live event, (similar to a physical EXPO with sponsor booths, speakers, organizations, advocates, supporters, and attendees, but virtual) free for sexual assault organizations, hosted by the FACSA Foundation. An example of our EXPO presentation will look similar to a live physical EXPO event. We anticipate 5000 attendees for the first event, but the attendance will increase as it is more publicized. We are asking sexual assault organization’s from across the nation to submit 3-5 minute videos of their organizational mission and services, with downloadable links for your virtual business cards, flyers, and brochures for their virtual booths; as well as submit art, music, poetry, crafts, wood work, metal art, and personal stories. We have a website to gather the content, that will be posted to the EXPO, at http://facsafoundationvirtualexpo.ning.com/ (you may have to put it in the top browser bar). On the day of the live event, you will be able to view the virtual live event from your computer and see organizations publicized on a national and global platform, speakers, sponsor booths, games, live Q & A chat with organizational members, and a virtual lounge to meet other attendees and participants. Organizations from nations who have joined us are Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Nigeria, Russia, Pakistan, and the U.K. Some speakers, from the EXPO, will join us in a nationwide speaking tour advocating prevention of sexual assault. This event is the catalyst for changing the social stigma of child sexual assault; by uniting organizations in a personal easy to access format; by conducting research to implement in developing new state of the art programs; using the research to change public policies; and teaching advocacy and prevention across the nation with the “Holocaust of Innocence Tour”. We are gathering the knowledge and resources for anyone to view 24/7, 365 days a year. We will also be gathering current statistics on how sexual assault is affecting our communities across the nation, socially and economically. Currently the statistics say the direct cost of sexual assault in America costs taxpayers 24.3 billion in direct cost and 69.7 in indirect costs. We know this is incorrect because 90% of victims do not tell from fear, shame, afraid of losing their family, or the perpetrator is someone they love. The staggering cost affects our states, corporations, businesses, educational systems, welfare systems, mental health systems, and criminal justice systems; and why this program format is so important to the development of our nations and children’s future. For a visual representation of the effects of child sexual assault, we have a “Holocaust of Innocence Wall” for survivors to share their experience and place memorabilia, pictures, words, art, etc. on the wall, as we travel across the nation on the “Holocaust of Innocence Tour”, (http://theholocuastofinnocence.blogspot.com/); pictures, art, and word representation can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, for download, printed and implemented on the Holocaust of Innocence Wall; or mailed to FACSA Foundation, P. O. Box 832, Springhill, LA. 71075. The EXPO event site, its contents, speakers, and sponsor booths will be able to view the information until next month’s event.
