This month of April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. That's why Volunteers for Youth Justice is teaming up with law enforcement, the courts, some churches, and a lot of private businesses the put on a child abuse awareness event this week. Called "Light of Hope," it runs from 6:30 until 8:30 Friday evening at the Louisiana Boardwalk. There'll be speakers to help drive the point home and a whole lot of things for families to do -- including face painting, arts and crafts, performances, and some big prizes you can win. Oh, and did I mention -- it's free?
