Stop Ignoring the Issues of 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.
