TODAY is the Inaugural

“World Day for Prevention, Healing and Justice

to End Sexual Violence Against Children and Adolescents”

Today, November 18th, child sexual abuse prevention advocates, survivors and allies around the world are mobilizing to raise awareness and take action to prevent child sexual exploitation and abuse and bring healing and justice to survivors. Goals of this global mobilization are to:  

  • Acknowledge the magnitude of the global crisis of child and adolescent sexual abuse;
  • Call for systemic change in communities, countries, and globally to address the crisis;
  • Call for long-term, sustained funding for organizations focused on prevention, healing, and justice;
  • Unite organizations and advocates across disciplines, promote partnerships and share resources for full scale implementation of programs and policies to safeguard children everywhere; 
  • Ensure that survivor voices and experiences are included in governing and decision-making bodies. 

Stakeholders in over 60 countries, including the 47 countries of the European CouncilBolivia, Canada, India, Kenya, Nepal, USA, and many other countries, cities, and communities are joining forces to kick off global support of the #EndChildSexAbuseDay #Nov18WorldDay.


MassKids World Day of Action

Today, MassKids is releasing its latest version of our report, “A Call to Action for Policymakers and Advocates” that includes the progress of additional states over the past six months to pass Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Legislation. Summaries of each state's efforts to enact five different prevention laws are included. Click here to download.

Today, we also release the recordings of our 3 National Webinars, held earlier this month to discuss the “Call to Action” report and its specific recommendations on Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Education in Schools and the Screening of School Applicants to Prevent Sexual Misconduct and 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.

As a companion to the webinars, today MassKids issues “21 Strategies to Pass Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Legislation in Your State”, a technical assistance guide for states. You can watch the webinar recordings now, and access our “21 Strategies” resource, linked on
