Stop Ignoring the Issues of Sexual Abuse

    1. Petition by

      Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse

Like our spokesperson, LaQuisha Hall, and Stop the Silence volunteers, pledge to share you knowledge of sexual abuse by learning and sharing the following information with people that you encounter everyday:

1 in 4 girls is sexually abused before the age of 18. 

1 in 6 boys is sexually abused before the age of 18. 

1 in 5 children are solicited sexually while on the internet. 

Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under. 

An estimated 39 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse exist in America today.

      In order for child victims of sexual assault to be protected from  repeated acts of sexual assault and future trauma. We must stop ignoring sexual abuse.

      Hoping this year we can make some progress and start protecting our children.

      Thank you.

      I have recently realized that my first boyfriend would now be considered a pedophile and I agree.I was totally abused,beaten and also raped by this man.I married him.He had manipulated me into thinking he was the only one on the planet who even liked me.Awful.Abuse lasts forever.This happened almost 30 years ago.No child should ever be abused.Let's protect all children the best that we can.I still can't understand WHY there are so many sexual abusers out there?What is wrong with these people?That's a problem that I will never solve,I know.BUT WHY???? Is it because they can? If so, let's make it so they can't.
