Keeping our children safe
As adults, we have a responsibility to protect the children around us. In the United States, an estimated 1 in 7 girls and 1 in 25 boys is sexually abused before turning 18. Abuse occurs in all neighborhoods and communities, regardless of economic class, ethnicity or religion. Unfortunately, only 20 to 40 percent of child sexual abuse is ever reported to authorities.
