1 in 10 children will be victims of childhood sexual abuse before their 18th birthdays, facing lifelong repercussions on their social and emotional well being. But our culture is changing. Sexual abuse has taken center stage in the public discourse, providing an opportunity to end the silence and protect the most vulnerable amongst us - our children. Together, we can keep more children safe.
I pledge to do everything in my power to keep children safe. I pledge to shatter the silence on child sexual abuse and shine light on our ability to prevent this tragedy from happening so frequently in our society. I pledge to ask the tough questions and help create an environment of transparency, accountability, and safety in our youth-serving organizations.
Child Safety Pledge is empowering youth-serving organizations, funders, and families to take charge in preventing child sexual abuse. We partnered with RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, to help you have daring discussions to protect more children.
