“Prevent Child Abuse America, founded in 1972 and based in Chicago, works to ensure the healthy development of children nationwide.

Surviving In Numbers, a blog started by Ali Safran in 2012, was designed to raise awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault and how many sexual assault survivors there are.

“The name of the project is doubly meaningful: it’s a play on the phrase ‘strength in numbers,’ as there truly is a strength among these and other survivors who speak out about their experiences. Additionally, the project is truly about survivors and the numbers around their experiences: how many people they told, how the assault cost them relationships, etc.”

“There are more slaves today than ever before. It’s time to end human trafficking. It’s hard to believe, but more humans are being used as slaves than ever before. Between 700,000 and 4 million women and children will be trafficked this year, with the majority being forced to work in the sex trade. In America, there are an estimated 40,000 men, women and children enslaved at this very moment. If everyone who cares takes action, we can end slavery once and for all. It’s time.”

“The ultimate mission of D2L, to end childhood sexual abuse, can only be accomplished by sharing the solution of prevention, awareness and education with more and more people. This, in turn, builds momentum and over time, changes the way our nation and culture cares for, protects and nurtures our children. Being an active participant in the mission to end childhood sexual abuse is one of the most rewarding things we will ever do – and we cannot do it without you.

We believe that learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped.”
