~~~ Imagine the outcry if these statistics represented a disease, which was wiping out 5 children per day, victimizing millions, and who’s by-products where disabilities & expanding violence. Youth rights are really about human rights, and simple empathy is a giant first step to the benefits of increased awareness. The high jump in child abuse statistics shows the importance of youth rights by showing cases of frightening lack of knowledge!!~~~

….Go ahead….
IT’S TIME TO GET ANGRY ABOUT CHILD ABUSE IN OUR NATION!!

    Real good to see more people fighting back and breaking the silence about sexual abuse, the traumas that are left behind, and the potential damage that abuse causes

    I will be in NYC this March, doing some work with male survivors, and sharing my knowledge on what helps to remove guilt, shame and blame

    If any male survivors see this, try and join us.
