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.
