THE HERO PLEDGE
I will work to end child sexual abuse and protect children because:
I am outraged that 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys are sexually abused before age 18
I am saddened by the fact that the vast majority of child sexual abuse is never reported.
I pledge to become a HERO to children by accepting my responsibility to intervene and report every time I suspect that a child is being sexually abused.
What is the HERO Project?
HERO, a project of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, is a community-based, media-driven, child sexual abuse prevention program designed to educate and motivate adult community members to call the 24-hour HERO Hotline if they suspect child sexual abuse.
