Boy Scouts host anti-abuse forum
The Boy Scouts of America is hosting an unprecedented closed-door symposium today with representatives of other national organizations. They hope sharing strategies to combat future child sex abuse.
The 10 participating groups, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, the YMCA and Big Brothers Big Sisters, will hear presentations from some of the nation's top experts on the subject.
They also will discuss how uncorroborated information about potentially threatening adult volunteers might be shared among organizations.
The Boy Scouts have been criticized for a lack of transparency in the ways they deal with sex abuse allegations.
