Prevent Child Abuse and Murder
0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000.
We hear the stories every day; children killed or tortured by their family. It’s heartbreaking. It’s so easy to turn away.
But the saddest thing is that many of these tragedies can be prevented by existing programs.
When a new parent is paired with a trained professional who regularly comes to the family home and supports, guides and teaches them about parenting, amazing things happen. Families break the cycle of poverty and violence. Children succeed in school. And child abuse is prevented. These programs, called Maternal Home Visiting programs, have 40 years worth of data proving they work. But they’re available to 10% or less of the families that need for them.
That’s unacceptable. One child is too many. Our children deserve better. But they won’t get it unless we demand it. So please, sign this petition and let your voice be heard.
Stop Erie County's children from being abused and murdered. Invest 2.3 million new dollars to transform the worst neighborhood in the county into the best for children.
We the undersigned ask you, Governor Cuomo, to provide the funds for us to adopt the Stop Abuse Campaign's plan that will protect our children before they are harmed rather than just intervene when they are.
By implementing the plan, Erie County can prevent child abuse and murder with evidence-based best practices.
