The National Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation teamed up with MassKids/Enough Abuse and Prevent Child Abuse America to host a FREE three-part Webinar Series to assist policymakers and advocates in legislative advocacy efforts to prevent child sexual abuse. Over 80 advocates from 25 states registered for the webinars and several have pledged to begin efforts to introduce new prevention legislation or work to amend current laws that lack recommended provisions.

The series was a follow up to the release in June 2021 of “A Call to Action for Policymakers and Advocates: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Legislation in the States,” a report developed by MassKids/Enough Abuse in collaboration with Prevent Child Abuse America and endorsed by the National Coalition.
