Pledge to Prevent
Pledge to Prevent™ is a unique online action campaign to prevent child sexual abuse. Its goal is to harness the public’s keen awareness about the problem and provide thousands of individuals across the country with the education they need to then take concrete, practical actions to prevent it in their homes and communities.
Visit www.pledgetoprevent.org and take the Pledge to Prevent today. Get started by choosing from among the 24 pledges described under the various categories:
- Learner (I want to educate myself about the issue.) Family Taking the Pledge
- Prevention Influencer (I want to share what I know.)
- Safe Community Promoter (I want to engage my school or youth organization in prevention actions.) or
- Movement Builder (I want my legislator to champion prevention laws and policies.)
You have the option to “Show Your Hand. Take a Stand!” by uploading to the site’s Photo Gallery, a photo of yourself with your raised hand declaring “Enough!” Provide a 2-word description of yourself that will appear under your photo, e.g. “I am a mother and a small business owner”, I am a father and a survivor,” “I am a student and a sorority sister,” etc.
You will immediately receive an email with links to resources that will educate you about how to carry out your specific pledge. After you have fulfilled your pledge, you can go back to the site, select another pledge, and take further prevention actions.
You can also become a Pledge Ambassador and generate dozens or hundreds of other pledges by sharing your pledge with family, friends and social media contacts and challenging them to also Pledge to Prevent™!
