Who we are

We are a powerful movement of survivors and allies focused on ending sexual violence against children and adolescents.

In all its forms… child sexual abuse, incest, child sexual exploitation, rape, sexual violence in dating relationships and sexual violence among peers.

Against all children… regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality or economic status.
Everywhere… in homes, schools, communities, places of worship, sport and online.

Our focus is on comprehensive, bold and transformative action from leaders focused on:

Prevention to protect this and every generation to come.

Healing for victims, survivors, and their families.

Justice for victims/survivors and accountability for perpetrators and institutions who covered up the abuse

Join our growing movement to receive updates and collaborate on key advocacy moments.
