(Phoenix, AZ) – Hundreds of Arizonans will join Children’s Action Alliance (CAA) in honoring Phoenix attorney Nicole Stanton and the Arizona Juvenile Courts for their efforts in improving conditions for kids at this month’s annual Through the Eyes of a Child luncheon, being held Friday, October 21st. The theme of the 18th annual event is Justice: Through the Eyes of a Child.

Stanton, winner of the Horace Steele Child Advocacy Award, is being recognized for her work on the Stop Bullying AZ campaign through the Dion Initiative for Child Well-Being and Bullying Prevention, which aims to promote a healthy and safe environment in which children can grow and learn.

The Jacque Steiner Public Leadership Award will go to the Arizona Juvenile Courts for their Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), a nationally recognized prevention program that works to move young people out of the criminal justice system and build their opportunities for a bright future.

“We are so fortunate in Arizona to have leaders working on effective strategies to keep children safe and help them grow up to reach their dreams,” said CAA president and CEO, Dana Wolfe Naimark. “The work that Nicole is doing to prevent bullying and the JDAI program at the courts are making a difference in our state and they deserve to be acknowledged and awarded.”

Details for the luncheon are:

When: Friday, October 21st, 2016
11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Where: Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa
2400 E. Missouri Avenue, Phoenix

The luncheon is CAA’s flagship annual event, and the awards are a highly respected honor in the community.
