Partnerships and Memberships

Since its founding in 1992, Stop It Now! has worked with local, state, national and international organizations to change the way people think about child sexual abuse and give them actions to take to protect children. Through this comprehensive community based programming we challenged communities to come together to make prevention a priority and to safeguard children’s right to freedom from sexual abuse.

Our partners include those organizations who share a commitment to the mission of mobilizing adults, families and communities to take actions that protect children before they are harmed and share our vision that children grow up free of trauma from any form of violence including sexual abuse and exploitation. We consider our funders, as well as project partners as collaborators in prevention. Additionally, our professional memberships keep us connected to current, relevant and inspiring research, legislative actions and resources.
