Announcing 2013-2014 Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series

Ms. Foundaiton and PreventConnect Logos - #PoweverIn Prevention

Preventing child sexual abuse is possible. While about one in three girls and one in seven boys will be sexually abused before the age of 17[1], many organizations and activists are engaged in efforts to end child sexual abuse. Together, these people are part of a movement to create changes in our society, advance policies to promote safety and conduct prevention efforts to ensure child sexual abuse will not happen in the first place.

PreventConnect is partnering with the Ms. Foundation for Women to continue its online community to support this movement to end child sexual abuse. Last year, thousands of people joined online activities to end child sexual abuse. Through its upcoming web conference series, participants will hear from innovators in the movement and connect with other activists committed to ending child sexual abuse.
