Symposium asks: How safe are our children?


In the end, organizers of the “Salem as a Safer Child Community Symposium” hope to identity issues and map out a plan.

“People are going to have to step up,” said Vissing, a sociology professor. “If we are leaders of our community, then it is our obligation to lead and create a structure and opportunity for everybody to step up and do the right thing — and that’s to help kids.”

Individuals or organizations that would like to participate in tomorrow’s program can contact Vissing at Advance registration is required.
