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, and our EIN# is 26-3280565. We are 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.
On January 11 &12, 2012, INXPO will present a nationwide live event, free for sexual assault organizations, hosted by the FACSA Foundation. An example of our INXPO presentation will look similar to this travel EXPO at http://app.virtualtravelevents.com/VVE2011/Event.aspx?rc=home/(Top Browser bar- may have to use email@example.com to sign in).We anticipate 5000 attendees for the first event, but the attendance will increase as it is more publicized. Currently we are asking sexual assault organization’s from across the nation to submit 3-5 minute videos of their organizational mission and services. If they have special speakers to submit, include a 30 minute-1 hour video for them as well. They can also submit downloadable links for your virtual business cards, flyers, and brochures. They can submit art, music, poetry, crafts, wood work, metal art, and personal stories, as well. We have a website to gather the content, that will be posted to the INXPO 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. Nations who have joined us are Africa, Canada, Russia, Pakistan, and the U.K. We will have a live Q&A via chat that each organization can participate in to answer questions about their organization or field of expertise. Some speakers, from the INXPO, will join us in a nationwide speaking tour advocating prevention of sexual assault. 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. We have a “Holocaust of Innocence Wall” for survivors to share their experience and place memorabilia, pictures, words, art, etc. on the wall that will travel with us on a nationwide speaking tour (http://theholocuastofinnocence.blogspot.com/). The INXPO event will be monthly, but the site, its contents, speakers, and sponsor booths will be able to view the information until next month’s event.
We would love for you to join us on this incredible journey.
