Juvenile Detention & Motorcycle Clubs: Mike Speaks for Kids Anywhere
Mike delivers powerful speeches and presentations to audiences at all types of events and with various kinds of groups. Why? Because child sexual abuse knows no boundaries. Mike is pleased to share his message of overcoming abuse and addiction with audiences anywhere, including at Ohio’s juvenile detention facilities, and at events hosted by or associated with Bikers Against Child Abuse and Warriors for Children. Children need to know that adults are there to protect them, to stop abuse from continuing, and to get them the help and support they need. And adults need to know that whatever they’ve been through, they can heal and lead productive lives, and they can stop the epidemic of sexual abuse.
