3rd Wednesdays Every Month
March 20-21, 2019. Washington, DC.
The crime of child sexual abuse is sadly a familiar one to the American public. However, one category of child sexual abuse has largely escaped the public’s attention: child-on-child sexual abuse.
To help equip parents, educators, school administrators, and policymakers to address the challenges, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation is hosting a national Symposium on March 20-21, 2019 on “Out of the Shadows: Confronting the Rise of Child-on-Child Harmful Sexual Behavior”
This symposium is being held in collaboration with the National Catholic School of Social Service at The Catholic University of America and Protect Young Minds.
This convening will bring together leading experts, victim advocates, and practitioners who will share research and policy recommendations for improving ways of addressing child-on-child sexual abuse when it occurs and for prevention. Please join us as we seek to bring this issue out of the shadows and into mainstream conversations about sexual violence prevention and child protection.
2019 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit
June 12-15, 2019. Washington, DC.
While the problem of sexual exploitation is as immense as ever, opportunities to take new ground abound. Now, more than ever, the burgeoning movement to end sexual exploitation needs to be energized, equipped, encouraged and inspired. Your experience and leadership are vital to harnessing that energy, equipping emerging leaders, and inspiring the next generation to dream of a world free from sexual exploitation. Please join us for the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit June 12-15, 2019 and share your voice and vision with others.
