Wear white on April 30 and show your support of the collective efforts of individuals and organizations across the country to stop child sexual abuse. Education, preventive measures and empowering our youth are key to changing the tide on child sexual abuse. But first must come AWARENESS.
Wearing white together on a single day might seem like a random display, but it symbolizes the innocence of the children who have been abused and our personal and collective commitment to changing the culture we live in–which currently often favors the accused and leaves children in harms way every day.
~CSA affects 1 in every 5 children.
~90+% of abusers are people the children know and trust, including a significant number of older siblings as perpetrators.
That is a staggering number of kids being inappropriately touched, kissed, made to watch sexual conduct, even raped by the very people who are supposed to love and protect them.
Most adults do NOT know these statistics. They also don’t realize there are simple steps that can be taken to eliminate opportunities for sexual predators and to empower our children to recognize and resist inappropriate interaction.
But with a little “white” on the subject, we can bring CSA into awareness in a simple way that helps to #UndoTheTaboo about child sexual abuse.
Conversation is prevention.
Please share this event and encourage people to wear white in support of our efforts to stop this terrible social epidemic. The more attention we can draw to the subject, the safer our communities will become.
