Make April 2011 Child Sexual Abuse Prevention ACTION month
April is Child Abuse Prevention and Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Our experience and research with adults consistently shows that adult action falls short of awareness and good intentions when it comes to preventing the sexual abuse of children. So join with us to start taking action this month to make April 2011 Child Sexual Abuse Prevention ACTION month!
