GSNCA To Hold North Alabama Healthy Media Images Panel

Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) and the National Children’s Advocacy Center (NCAC) will host a community panel to discuss the impact of media images on children, especially young girls. The event will be held on Tuesday, June 7, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the NCAC’s location on Pratt Avenue.

The panel will include Monique Brouillette, Crisis Services of North Alabama; Tina Savas, Author, Women of True Grit; Deborah Callins, Prevention Director, National Children’s Advocacy Center; and America Hosch, a current Girl Scout, that will identify ways to help young people encounter media images that inspires, empowers and engage.

This event will build awareness about the need to pay attention not to just what kids watch, but how they watch it. Every child should be influenced by media that promotes confidence and character.

The National Children’s Advocacy Center is located at 210 Pratt Avenue NE Huntsville, AL 35801. Light appetizers will be served. Tina Savas will be selling her book at the event.

Please visit to RSVP through June 1, seating is limited. Along with GSNCA, this event is hosted by Kappa Delta and the National Children’s Advocacy Center.
