FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Council for Children’s Rights to host A Night for Children’s Rights on January 13th, 2011
Charlotte, NC – The first annual A Night for Children’s Rights to be
hosted by Council for Children’s Rights on Thursday, January 13th, 2011 at the The Westin Charlotte from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Community members, supporters, volunteers and activists are encouraged to attend. Wes Moore, renowned author and activist will speak about the role public service plays in everyday life in changing the future for youth all over the country.
Wes Moore has written The Other Wes Moore, a highly acclaimed novel
describing how accountability, chance, fate and family had a profound
impact on his life. Moore writes “public servants – the teachers, mentors and volunteers who work with our youth – are as imperative to our national standing and survival as our armed forces.”
Moore has been featured in media outlets such as People Magazine, The
New York Times, The Washington Post, CSPAN and MSNBC. Wes wondered how two young men from the same city, who were around the same age, and even shared a name, could arrive at two completely different destinies. Through a relationship with the other Wes Moore, who is
serving a life sentence for killing a police officer, he examines the paths young lives take in America.
Council for Children Rights has been the leading voice for children’s
rights since 1979. For additional information, please contact Amy Tribble or Penny Hawkins at (704) 372-7961.
