Tuesday afternoon, individuals and agencies in the fight against child abuse filled the second floor of the State House for a press conference on the important steps our state is taking to reduce and eventually end the abuse of children, our most precious resource. Pinwheels spun in the sunlight inside and outside the State House grounds, which hosted hundreds of happy children for a reading day.
