We’re All In to End Child Sexual Abuse: Join the Conversation

Friday, April 1

10am – 12pm

Rep. Liz Linehan, 103rd District, House of Representatives

Since Since the outset of the pandemic, we have seen a 33% increase in disclosures from children under 18. Join us for a virtual discussion on the scope of the problem and how everyone can help to prevent sexual abuse and keep kids safe. We’ll also announce and honor our recipient of the 2022 Visionary Voice Award.

We are kicking off Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Child Abuse Prevention Month by starting a conversation about this critical public health issue. Early disclosure and appropriate intervention after an experience of sexual abuse can make a significant difference in the life of a child and their short- and long-term health. We all have opportunities in our personal and professional lives to create safe spaces for children to turn to for help

During this panel discussion, with professionals from a variety of disciplines who are working to end child sexual abuse, attendees will learn how to create safer spaces for children to disclose abuse, increase their understanding of how current public policy efforts can increase safeguards for children and prevent abuse, and discover the critical importance of making treatment for childhood trauma more widely available.
