News @ Noon: Jacob Wetterling Resource Center Marking 25th Anniversary [AUDIO]
MINNEAPOLIS - A non-profit organization formed after Jacob Wetterling went missing is turning 25 years old. The "Jacob Wetterling Resource Center" is hosting an event tomorrow (Tuesday) from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m. at their office in Minneapolis. Patty and Jerry Wetterling are speaking at 4:30 p.m.
Program Manager Alison Feigh says their two main programs are prevention and advocacy.
Feigh says the internet has changed a lot of things - both good and bad - over the past 25 years.
Feigh says we as a society don't do a very good job yet of making "healthy" the easy choice. She says our culture does a great job of highlighting the "unhealthy".
The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center has a hotline - 1-800-325-HOPE - where they answer questions about internet issues and missing kids.
Tomorrow is Jacob Wetterling's birthday.
