Brave Voices

Speak Up to Protect Children

Our Mission

  1. Reduce the number of children harmed sexually by dismantling silence through advocacy, education, and learning.
  2. Provide a place for adults who were sexually harmed as children to share their lived experience, wisdom, strength and hope. A place where they can be heard, seen, known and held up with reverence and esteem in order to inspire others to break their silence by also Speaking Up.

Are You a Brave Voice?

Brave Voices breaks the cycle of silence that perpetuates childhood sexual abuse. Every adult contributes to the reduction of harm by speaking up. Join the Brave Voices Movement. Use your voice to normalize the conversation.

We at Brave Voices believe not just parents, but all adults – families and our communities – are responsible for ensuring that children have safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments. 

Your Voice Matters.

Brave Voices:

  • Know that they are the person responsible for protecting children from becoming sexually harmed.
  • Educate themselves; they work to move through their own discomfort in order to think, listen, learn and speak about the devastating problem of CSA and its prevention.
  • Find the courage to use their voice, even when it shakes!
  • Contribute to the reduction of harm by using their voice at every opportunity.
  • Speak up to protect children.
  • Normalize the conversation of CSA and its prevention.
  • Are adults who take responsibility to ensure children have safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments by speaking up whenever there is a worry or doubt that a child may be in danger of being harmed sexually. 
  • Are adults who do everything within their power to prevent sexual harm from occurring to children in their care.

What is Storycorps?

Storycorps is the largest online digital archive of human voices. It is their mission to build connections between people by preserving and sharing humanity’s stories in order to create a more compassionate world. Its collection of stories has been deemed to hold historical and cultural significance enough to be inducted into the Library of Congress. The Brave Voices Community Page on Archives Storycorps offers those who experienced CSA the opportunity to use their voice, to be heard, and counted.

Join the Movement

Imagine a movement as strong as MothersAgainstDrunkDrivers, Black Lives Matter and MeToo.

In order to put an end to the silence that perpetuates childhood sexual abuse we need every adult to become a Brave Voice. How do you see yourself included in the movement to protect children?
