Petitioning Presidential Debate Moderators

Ask Obama and Romney a debate question about preventing child abuse

There is no greater responsibility for our society than to protect our children. Yet, over 695,000 children are known to be a victim of child abuse or neglect each year. At a time when the nation has witnessed the tragedy of various high profile cases of child sexual abuse and other types of victimization, we deserve to hear the candidates share their positions on supporting effective strategies that prevent child abuse and neglect.
