For best results, registration is required 48 hours in advance.

Auto-captioning will be provided. Please register one week ahead for additional access requests.

A Zoom link, password and captioning information will be sent and reminders to registrants on the day prior to each meeting.

Thank you for making childhood safety a priority!
