Our Campaigns

Justice For Sex Abusers

Research by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that 1 in 5 children will be sexually abused. An epidemic greater than childhood cancer and an epidemic that dramatically increases the risk of the seven leading causes of death in America.

Ban Child Sex Dolls

Right now, teachers, coaches, babysitters, and neighbors, in every town in America, can purchase lifelike, anatomically correct dolls designed to simulate sex with a child. And it’s perfectly legal.

Protect High Risk Children

Maternal Home Visiting programs give mothers who are at high risk for abusing their children the skills to fix their own lives, parent successfully and break the cycle of abuse. 

Custody Court Crisis

New research from the Department of Justice confirms what many mothers know already. The custody court crisis means too many courts are making dangerous decisions that send children of divorce to live with violent domestic abusers and child molesters. Help protect these children. Help pass the Safe Child Act.
