one in five u.s. children are sexually abused

Protect Children From Sexual Abuse
Child sex abuse is perpetrated by predators in secret. And most children will keep that secret locked away for the next 21 years. Silenced by shame, not believing they will be believed. Their abuser nearly always someone they know and trust. When they can disclose they discover their perpetrators are protected by state laws called statutes of limitations. Only 1 in every 10 child sex abuse perpetrators ever see a day behind bars. Protected by statutes of limitations many go on to abuse other children.   Who do want to protect, children or predators?   Support our campaigns:

You never forget

I didn’t disclose until I was 52 years old. Somebody told me that the teacher who sexually abused me was still working in a school all these years later. I knew I had to act but when I told the police they said there was nothing they could do.

We can protect these children?

Statute of Limitation Reform

Criminal Law

“There’s nothing we can do.” That’s the answer most survivors get when they report their abuse to the police. Once a survivor reaches the age of 23 their rapist or molester is protected by law. There really is nothing the police can do. The law protects the predator not the child. Statute of limitation reform changes that.

Civil Law

Organizations like the Roman Catholic Church conspire to protect predator priests. Roosevelt Hospital admitted knowing about a doctor abusing masses of his child patients. The hospital knew for years but did not act. These organizations and many others like them are protected from liability. Statute of limitation reform changes that too.

Sex Offender registry

Sex Offender Registries are more helpful if sex offenders are on them. Did you know that most are not? When sex offenders are protected not prosecuted they never make it as far as court. They are free to keep abusing children, and good parents, schools and hospitals, and others are lulled into a false sense of security.

The Window Period

There are many abused children who are now barred from the courtroom. Whose abusers are already protected by law. These predators also belong on the sex offender registries. They too need to be held accountable. And the children they abused deserve justice. And that’s the reform that is needed.

Parental Alienation Syndrome

Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is a theory created by Dr. Richard Gardner for use against protective mothers in custody and divorce proceedings.  PAS is not based on any research but rather the personal beliefs, experience and bias of Dr. Gardner.  He assumed that virtually all reports of domestic violence or child abuse must be false.  PAS is not recognized by any legitimate scientific organization and is not included in any version of the the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

How Children Are Harmed

10 forms of childhood trauma dramatically increase the risk of 7 out of 10 of the leading causes of death in the United States. High doses of these traumas impact the brain system, the immune system, and the hormonal system. People exposed to very high doses have a reduced life expectancy of 20 years.
