This November we have a great chance to bring the needs, wants, and asks of survivors to the world stage in a big way! SNAP and leading advocacy organizations, such as Darkness to Light, RAINN, Together for Girls, and the Army of Survivors, will recognize November 18th as the international #EndChildSexAbuseDay.
On November 18, SNAP, as part of the steering group for the Keep Kids Safe coalition, will release our Federal Blueprint for action. A key part of this blueprint, and something that members of our SNAP network have demanded for years, is the importance of a federal investigation into institutions that perpetuate abuse and cover-up, like the Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention, and others.
The coalition is proposing that a “Keep Kids Safe National Summit” on the “Prevention, Healing and Justice of Sexual Violence Against Children and Adolescents” be convened by the White House in 2022. We believe it is critical that survivors of sexual abuse are able to attend this summit and share their experiences and stories with thought leaders, researchers, federal, state, and local leaders, and others from allied organizations around the U.S.
We want to bring SNAP leaders to DC for this day of action and legislative session, or to lobby for the creation of such a day in the future. To help SNAP leaders participate in this event, our GivingTuesday fundraiser aims to raise $10,000 needed for travel, hotel, and meals—expenses that many of our SNAP leaders cannot afford on their own.
Please share our GivingTuesday fundraiser to prevent childhood clergy sexual abuse with your family, friends and colleagues who believe in our mission and cause via your personal email, Facebook, Twitter, or other social media accounts.
SNAP needs your help and your generosity to achieve our $10,000 goal.
Thank you for your support!
