“The parents who took on the Mormon church in the Martinsburg, West Virginia child abuse case (link to their story) are sponsoring a hike to Protect Every Child. Join them, Sam Young, and more as we climb a mountain to save a child. Bring your families and your banners to unfurl [at the Marion Heights Overlook.]
The Overlook Cliff Trail is 1.5 miles each way, medium difficulty, and will start at John Brown’s fort. The hike will begin at 11:30. The Marion Heights Overlook about a mile up where flags can be unfurled for those with limitations who can’t do the full hike.
Following the hike there will be an open panel discussion at 4:00 pm with advocates, survivors, and media at the Clarion Hotel Conference Center in Harpers Ferry. For those staying at the hotel Saturday night, there will be a shuttle to and from the trailhead. Discounted room rates are available. Please mention “Protect Every Child” when you call to make your reservation.
For more information about Protect Every Child, and to sign their new petition, please visit Sam Young’s blog: “
