We believe child abuse is preventable. Open communication about personal safety and sex creates a protective bond between parent and child, increases confidence for both, and instills knowledge that makes children and teens much less vulnerable.
One of the best ways to reduce child sexual abuse is the education of responsible adults. We want to empower caregivers, community leaders, government officials, and the media to be intentional and steadfast in their protective behaviors by educating themselves on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
You are not alone. Let’s break through the stigma and shame and talk about it. When you’re ready, we invite you to share your story. Your story can uplift others and encourage someone to continue their prevention efforts.
Protect Our Children is an state-wide ecosystem of partners aimed at increasing knowledge about child sexual abuse and promoting pro-prevention attitudes and prevention behaviors.
