Drug and Alcohol Abuse Counseling


Wednesday, April 27, 2005

Author Jim Parker will be the speaker for the "Take Back the Night" march and rally from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Parker recently wrote "Raped in the House of God, The Murder of My Soul and Its Lifetime Effects." In the book, he alleges he was raped by a Catholic priest in Lansing when he was a 12-year-old altar boy.

He is now the southern Arizona leader of SNAP -- Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests -- and is an ardent advocate for survivors of clergy abuse.

The march will begin at Bucky Harris Park at the corner of N. Jackson Street and W. Michigan Avenue and proceed to the Jackson Symphony Orchestra offices for Parker's talk.

The event is sponsored by Jackson's AWARE Shelter to mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month. For more information, call AWARE at 783-2861.
