The Mission of Stop the Silence is to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide.
Stop the Silence focuses on Awareness, Prevention, and Healing regarding CSA through a host of evidence-based, creative, and impactful programs that are carried out locally, nationally, and internationally. The organization necessarily also focuses on issues related to CSA, like trafficking, other forms of domestic violence, and bullying.
