Make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children with CASA 5K

I volunteer for the Fulton County CASA program in Atlanta, Georgia, and wanted to inform you about a fundraiser 5K run to benefit the children in the program. The Super Hero 5K Fun Run happens on November 10 at 4pm in Piedmont Park in Atlanta. For more information check out their website at, and

CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is a national organization in the United States that advocates for children who are in State custody or have to go to court for custody, foster, and adoption placement hearings. While the foster care system tries hard to meet the needs of children in its care, everyone from child welfare case managers to foster parents agrees that the juvenile care system is overwhelmed, underfunded, and in some cases sadly ineffective. CASAs can help by keeping kids from slipping through the cracks and speaking out for them in court.

Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, CASA, CSE

One of a handful of global experts on polyamory and the foremost international expert on children in polyamorous families, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff has studied gender and
families of sexual minorities for the last 16 years. Sheff’s television appearances include CNN, and the National Geographic, and she has given more than 20 radio, podcast, print, and television interviews with sources from Radio Slovenia to National Public Radio, the Sunday London Times to the Boston Globe and Newsweek. By emphasizing research methodology and findings in her discussions, Dr. Sheff presents the kind of public intellectualism that encourages audience members to think critically regarding gender, sexualities, and families.
