The 29th Arizona Child Abuse Prevention Conference will be held in person at the  Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa. The conference will feature outstanding keynote speakers, dozens of illuminating workshops, and networking opportunities with hundreds of professionals from a variety of sectors, including family/human service, government, nonprofits, law enforcement, healthcare, and education.

We chose this year’s theme, “I Am Prevention,” to help our conference attendees recognize how, through their personal and professional roles, they are already preventing child abuse and neglect. By recognizing the power in their actions, they can sustain, expand, and build upon their current efforts to strive toward the shared vision of an Arizona free of child abuse.
