SNAP responds to arrest of pedophile teacher in LA
We are deeply disturbed at the level of depravity of Mark Berndt. Our hearts grieve for the torture suffered by the children that he abused and who may have looked up to him as a teacher before he betrayed their trust. We hope they are able to find healing and recovery.
We are especially concerned that he has been working at this Miramonte Elementary for 30 years. This level of sadism does not simply spring up one day, and so we wonder how many more children he may have tortured and abused during his tenure there. Given the fact that many of these children were from poor and impoverished backgrounds, and in some cases the children of illegal immigrants, it is likely that there are many more victims who were coerced or threatened into silence. We hope that they are able to find their voice and come forward to police to report their abuse.
SNAP Conference Postponed to September
As cases of COVID-19 continue to dominate the headlines, affect the way we work and play, and force changes to our daily lives, we have decided to postpone the SNAP Annual Conference from July until September. We are now planning to hold the conference from September 25 - 27 and it will still be held in Denver, CO.
In order to help make this change easier, we will be charging only $99 for registration from now through June 30. Stay tuned for updates and register today on our conference page.SNAP Conference Postponed to September
