One in ten children are sexually abused before their 18 th birthday in the United States alone (one in two children with disabilities). Child sexual abuse is a national and global crisis that robs children of their innocence, costs billions annually, and is a primary root cause of human trafficking and child sexual exploitation. Research proves that childhood abuse and trauma are leading causes for many of society’s most urgent problems, including disease, addiction, and more. Each of us has a role to play in preventing child sexual abuse. Please take a moment to learn about the work being done by Darkness to Light (D2L.org) and other resources.
