Darkness to Light works with stakeholders at the community, state, and federal levels to empower influential adults to speak out and take action against child sexual abuse.
Through the use of advocacy strategies, we empower caregivers, community leaders, government officials, and the media to motivate their constituents, congregants, and communities to take preventive action, to demand improved resources for child sexual abuse prevention research and programs, and to improve systems so they are protective of children and reduce their risk for sexual abuse.
One of the best ways to reduce child sexual abuse is the education of responsible adults. Now is the time for our communities to be intentional and steadfast in their protective behaviors so that all children can grow up healthy and whole.
Protecting children from sexual abuse and other types of victimization requires a 360° approach. Prevent 360° is the solution for communities trying to solve the problems of abuse and victimization of children.
Partner in Prevention
A Partner in Prevention is an organization or business that has committed the time and effort to educate themselves on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
This webinar and live-streaming series was born out of the need to learn unique perspectives from different communities and how they deal with the issue of child sexual abuse.
Darkness to Light’s Prevent Now! assists and supports communities in creating sustainable child sexual abuse prevention initiatives that increase awareness, education, prevention, and advocacy.
Flip the Switch
Inspired by the many people who voiced concern, US Champion Gymnast Aly Raisman in partnership with Darkness to Light created the #FlipTheSwitch campaign to call all adults to take action.
