Digital Extras 4:Remembering Shaniya Davis in Cumberland County
In 2009, the death of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis gripped the entire Cumberland County community. The case helped shine a light on the issue of child abuse and neglect. Now, Cumberland County is the first county in North Carolina to develop a Community Child Abuse Prevention Plan. Generous support for this series is provided by UNC-School of Government and Civic Federal Credit Union.
The eighth episode of our new series on UNC-TV highlights programs designed to counter and prevent “adverse childhood experiences” – harm to children that results from neglect or abuse. See below for additional resources on this topic.
