Ventura County Couple Creates Memorial Wall To Highlight National Child Abuse, Neglect Problem

Posted on Thursday, November 7, 2013 7:59am

While many retirees are taking it easy, one Ventura County couple has decided to take on a huge task:  to try to educate people about America’s huge child abuse problem.

They’ve created what they call the “Wall of Tears,” a portable wall containing video monitors displaying the pictures of many of the 2500 children who die annually from child abuse, and neglect.

The wall made its local debut yesterday, at a domestic and sexual abuse awareness event sponsored by the Psychology Club at Ventura College.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story.
