43,000 New York children will be sexually abused this year unless we protect them.
Sign the petition.
The Adverse Childhood Experiences study from the CDC shows that 1 in every 5 children will be sexually abused. In New York State that’s 5 New York children every hour of every day. Today 9 out of 10 sexual predators are on New York’s streets. They’ll never spend a day in jail. They’ll never he held accountable for their crime. A crime that sentences their victims to shorter, sicker lives.
They’re protected by New York State law that says a victim has to report their abuse before their 23rd birthday, despite the research showing that it takes 21 years for the average survivor to overcome their shame and report the crime.
Take action now to protect children. Sign our petition supporting the Child Victims Act. An act to get rid of these antiquated laws.
