About the Children's Services Committee...

The Children’s Services Committee meets on the first Friday of the month (September to June), from 10 a.m. to noon at Verdant Health in Lynnwood.  Contact Phyllis Busch if you’d like to join us.

On Tuesday, March 12, at 6 p.m., we are showing a film, Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, in the Edmonds Library Plaza Room. This free event is co-sponsored by Sno-Isle Libraries and AAUW Edmonds SnoKing Branch.

The committee has advocated for the safety of children by concentrating its work on two major areas.  Our first emphasis was on the sex trafficking of minors. We continued that work as we did research on a study of child and family homelessness in Snohomish County.

We are writing our study and plan to present it to LWV-SC Units for adoption.  We then hope to update the League’s position on the issue. Armed with a stronger position, we will lobby for legislation in Olympia.

Other activities:

  • On the last Monday of each month we prepare a meal that we bring to Cocoon House in Everett, which serves trafficked and homeless youth.
  • We purchased The Long Night, a documentary about child sex trafficking in America. We can loan the film to your group and provide a speaker.
