One in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before they turn 18. Odds are likely that you will know someone who is being abused. With the right training, sexual abuse can be prevented. Darkness to Light equips individuals and communities with the tools to protect kids from abuse. Their website offers a plethora of resources, including adult training programs, educational videos, guidelines for prevention initiatives, and more.
In October, the HAND grant recipient is also hosting its annual conference, Ignite 2017. Industry professionals, experts, and citizen advocates will gather in Atlanta, Georgia to share ideas, enhance their training, and strengthen community initiatives. We encourage you to visit Darkness to Light's website to learn more about this devastating epidemic and how you can make a difference. Together, we can put an end to child sexual abuse.
