  • Supervisors will honor County Attorney LaWall’s 44-year career

    The Pima County Board of Supervisors will honor retiring County Attorney Barbara LaWall at its Oct. 20 meeting when Board members vote to rename the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona after the longtime champion of children’s safety.

    The Children’s Advocacy Center is a child-sensitive and child-centered environment where more than 1,000 victims of extreme abuse and neglect each year are examined and interviewed for evidence collection. The Center also offers services for parents and guardians. 

    LaWall’s vision and leadership made the Center a reality. She coordinated representatives from agencies across the County to establish the Center in 1996 and construct the county-owned building in 2008.

    The building is bright and colorful, has child-sized equipment and furniture, and even includes a full-time facility dog that offers children comfort and love. The Center’s Board of Directors unanimously voted in favor of naming it the “Barbara LaWall Children’s Advocacy Center.” 

    The Board of Supervisors will vote to adopt the designation and honor LaWall’s 44-year career of advocating for child victims at the Oct. 20 meeting. View the live event at 11 a.m. online or via Facebook
