National Association to Protect Children
Grier Weeks began his career in Washington in 1984, working on Capitol Hill promoting prison reform. During the '90s he was a marketing and communications professional, a small business owner and a political campaign manager, featured in the 1996 PBS documentary, "Vote for Me." In 2002, disgusted with partisan politics and the lack of attention given to the treatment of children, Weeks joined with Andrew Vachss and others to form PROTECT, the first national lobby dedicated exclusively to child protection.
Since 2002, Weeks has crafted legislation and lobbied in over ten states and federally, testifying before Congress and state legislatures numerous times. In 2004, he helped establish the National Association to Protect Children. Politically, Weeks is a committed independent and single-issue activist who thrives on what President Teddy Roosevelt called "aggressively fighting for the right ... the noblest sport the world affords."
