Amherst H. Wilder Foundation President and CEO MayKao Y. Hang will join the Task Force on the Protection of Children established by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton. MayKao will join 21 other civic and community leaders in making recommendations for improvements to the child protection system and the upcoming 2015 legislative session.
"The abuse of any child in Minnesota is one child too many," said Governor Dayton. "No child should have to suffer from the violence or neglect of a family member or other adult. I look forward to the recommendations of this new Task Force, and I urge the Legislature to act on them in January."
The Governor announced the creation of the new Task Force last week, along with other executive actions that will make immediate changes to the state's child protection system.
