HELP PREVENT CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
It is not enough to understand child sexual abuse and its traumatic impacts. We need to prevent it from happening by making sure that all youth-serving organizations put measures in place that can stop abuse before it occurs. CHILD USA has issued a Gold Standard—crafted by recognized experts—that sets out the best practices for screening employees, ensuring a safe environment for children, training workers and kids, detecting red-flag behaviors, reporting abuse, cooperating with law enforcement, and caring for victims.
Tell your camp, youth group, or sports organization to adopt the Gold Standard!
HELP MORE SURVIVORS GET THEIR DAY IN COURT
Most men and women miss the deadline for obtaining justice because they are paralyzed by fear, shame, and trauma. The average age of disclosure is 52. By then, they are blocked by statutes of limitations in far too many states. That obstacle not only robs victims of justice, it allows hidden sexual predators to continue abusing children.
CHILD USAdvocacy makes it easy to call on your state legislature to give all survivors access to the courts!
