Child Sexual Abuse and Our Communities
Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. (Stop the Silence) has been working to prevent and mitigate child sexual abuse (CSA) since 2000. In 2008, we launched an Art as Advocacy program using theater, film and other art to increase awareness, understanding and action. This program has branched into formal university programs and clubs. This presentation will focus on increasing awareness, education and action on CSA including: what CSA is and does to children, adults and society; signs of grooming; prevention and mitagation activities regarding CSA as well as related sexual violence on campuses and in the community.
