April: Childhood Sexual Abuse Awareness Month


April is Childhood Sexual Abuse Awareness Month.  Please use this time to raise awareness to those in your communities, neighborhoods, and families.  Take time to talk to the loved ones in your lives, especially those precious children.  Help keep them safe.  If they are going through abuse, be their hero!  Let's break the silence that surrounds this topic.  It is difficult to talk about, but talking about it is the only way we can begin to change it.

As we move forward in this month, we renew our efforts in our Break the Silence campaign.  Whether you have been a victim, had a loved one affected by abuse, or simply want to speak you mind about CSA, we encourage you to send us a message and we will share it on this site.  Every person and every story can make a difference.  We just need to open our mouths.

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats it children." - Nelson Mandela

If you wish to tell your story or share your opinion, please email us at breakthesilence@runforinnocence.org
