Senator Grassley honored with Family Protection Award

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - U.S. Senator Charles Grassley will be honored with the Family Protection Award at the upcoming Iowa Preventing Abuse Conference on Aug. 22 and 23 at the Kirkwood Hotel in Cedar Rapids. 

The Preventing Abuse Conference will be held to address such subjects such as human trafficking, child abduction and pornography connection to human trafficking.

Grassley will receive the award for his work to help protect families, especially women and children.

“I’m grateful for the honor,” Grassley said. “Trafficking happens under our noses. Stopping it requires knowing where to look. It requires a dedication to the simple idea that no one should tolerate the treatment of human beings as commodities. The work of advocates such as the Preventing Abuse Foundation is critical in keeping men, women, and children safe from the scourges of trafficking and abduction.”
