Crowd Walks King Street In Memory Of Elsie McGraw

"Predators Like Silence" and "Roar to end the Silence" just two of the phrases on signs at the 1st annual Elsie McGraw Memorial Walk.

The founder of Voice Found, Cynthia Bland,  who offers sexual abuse prevention training met Elsie a few years ago.

Elsie wanted Cynthia's group to come to Saint John and train volunteers who could then deliver the prevention training in the community but she passed away before she could see it happen.

The training for facilitators that Elsie wanted to see happen is taking take place in the City tomorrow.  

It will help adults train others adults that work in youth-serving organizations how to recognize and respond to child sexual abuse.
