A Call To Action

Millions of children have been affected by sexual abuse, and millions more will be if things don't change. It's time to be proactive instead of reactive—to learn & practice prevention methods that protect the children in our lives. To hear from, learn from, and believe survivors of sexual abuse. And to support organizations who fight against today's most dangerous situations. These acts build a defense against sexual violence so that all kids may experience the safe and happy childhood they deserve.
