Pass Kayden's Law before another child is murdered in Pennsylvania.

On August 6, 2018, seven-year-old Kayden Mancuso was murdered by her father. 

Kayden’s death was preventable. Her mother knew that Kayden’s father was violent and unhinged, and she knew that Kayden didn’t feel safe around him. Domestic violence experts know that it is often the most dangerous abusers who use custody courts to manipulate their victims into staying or punish them for leaving.

Despite all the warnings, a judge made a legal decision to allow Kayden’s father to spend unsupervised time with her. And Kayden’s father used that time alone to murder her. We know he wanted to punish Kayden's mother because he left a note to say so.


Every year, dozens of children are killed under similar, preventable circumstances. Tens of thousands more subjected to predictable abuse and trauma


The judicial system responded defensively to the tragedy and the judge blamed both parents for the father’s sadistic crime. The Stop Abuse Campaign crafted Kayden’s Law with Kayden’s family, Child USA, interested legislators, and the governor's office [SB868 and HB1587]. It will protect hundreds of children from sexual abuse, physical abuse and witnessing domestic violence every year. And it will be the best way to honor a special girl and force something good out of such a despicable crime.
