Kathryn Freeman

Public Policy Director, Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission

Member of the Child Protection Roundtable

Why is this issue important to you?
As a Christian, I believe I am to care for the poor and vulnerable in our society. Children are a gift from God, but often times are incredibly vulnerable to abuse and neglect. The issue is important to me because it's important to God.

What prompted you to get involved?
I believe every child deserves a healthy, hope-filled and happy childhood, in which they are equipped to thrive as adults.

How does your role as a Roundtable Member impact child abuse prevention?
My role as a Roundtable member gives me knowledge about evidence-based best practices for preventing child abuse and neglect and then equips me to advocate for those programs to the Legislature.

How would you encourage others to make an impact?
I encourage churches and pastors to get involved in their communities with foster children and their families, but I also encourage them to get involved at the local level with child abuse prevention programs so they are resourced to help families in crisis.
