combined federal campaignStarting 2009, Stop It Now! (CFC# 12223) participates in the CFC under our 'Doing Business As' name:  Child Sex Abuse Prevention and Protection Center.

A 13-year old girl is drugged and raped at a party.  Her testimony was that she did not resist because she was afraid of Roman Polanski, the famous and powerful man who admitted raping her.

According to the Chicago Tribune, one of the top 10 iPhone apps allows you to search for sex offenders in a particular location.   The difficult truth is that the vast majority (88%) of sexual abuse goes unreported. This means that 9 times out of 10, a person who sexually abused a child will have no criminal record at all and won't be listed on a registry -- even though they may have abused in the past.

Choose from a selection of stickers, decals, bracelets, shirts and mugs that display the Stop It Now! heart-in-hand purple logo. There’s a  magnet that reminds people that help is available at our Online Help Center. And a special crystal bracelet can be customized to recognize the courage of someone special.

The Stop It Now! online store offers you easy and affordable ways show support for preventing child sexual abuse – and to support more prevention work. 18% of every purchase directly supports the work of Stop It Now!.

Stop It Now! is offering free webinars to introduce professionals to resources to help protect children from child sexual abuse.  The webinars entitled "Prevent Child Sexual Abuse:  Learn to Use a New Online Tool" will be offered monthly.  In addition to a webinar for general public, others will be targeted to audiences from New Mexico and Virginia as well as to international audiences.  For more information and to register, go to www.StopItNow.org/training.

Stop It Now! Executive Director Deborah Donovan Rice is making the rounds of talk radio to increase awareness of child sexual abuse prevention.

On-the-Line,” Child Welfare League of America's radio show  interviews Stop It Now! Executive Director for National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The focus of this edition of “On-the-Line” is the silent epidemic of childhood sexual abuse — a widespread major public health problem in our society that affects thousands of children and adolescents in the United States each year.

A new study of the risk factors for the perpetration of child sexual abuse shows that sex offenders against children were not different from those who sexually offended against adults other than showing lower externalizing behaviors.
