One with Courage
Child sexual abuse is a crime of secrecy which, sadly, breeds within our society because it is difficult to talk about.
One With Courage is a public awareness campaign centered around the courage it takes to talk about child sexual abuse - the courage it takes child victims to come forward and talk about their abuse, and the courage it takes adults to talk about the issue, and to learn the signs and recognize abuse.
The goal of this campaign is to educate the general public about the signs of sexual abuse, dispel generally accepted "myths" about the issue, and create awareness of the role children's advocacy centers play in providing services to child victims and their families. We strongly believe that child sexual abuse can be eliminated within our society through formation of informed, empowered communities
The campaign consists of the following core components:
- Television public service announcements in English and Spanish aired on cable television
- Digital public service announcements to be placed on internet media outlets
- A "micro website" www.onewithcourage.org provides information and materials.
The "One With Courage" campaign is a powerful step forward in that fight.
