Our Mission

is to prevent and combat child sexual abuse.

Enough is enough. North America’s hidden crisis of child sexual abuse means we need work together to build a culture of accountability, transparency, and awareness around child safety. By doing so, our goal is to create a movement to keep all children safe from sexual abuse; to work with policymakers to strengthen safeguards; to guide investors and foundation to make ethical investments in youth serving organizations and facilities and, in turn, lower the number of children who become victims every year.

About the Child Safety Pledge

The Child Safety Pledge is a collaborative effort to protect all children from sexual abuse in North America. We believe that every youth-serving organization aspires to provide a safe environment for the children in their care, and we seek to empower them with the capacity to do exactly that.
