Category: Description:
Darkness 2 Light's mission is to raise public awareness about the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse, and to provide people with the resources with which to stop the sexual violation of children. There are over 40 million survivors of CSA in the United States alone and with their help, and the help of a caring community of individuals, we want to start a movement to end the sexual abuse of all children.

Darkness 2 Light, since it's inception in 2001, has made huge strides both nationally and internationally in their attempt to educate as many adults as possible with regards to child sexual abuse. Their adult prevention program, Stewards of Children, won the 2007 McGruff national crime prevention program of the year award. In the eight years they've been around, D2L has trained over 1,800 facilitators in 46 states and ten countries who are authorized to teach Stewards of Children. Stewards is also available online at the Darkness 2 Light website listed below.

Darkness 2 Light's award winning media campaign has also been a great success and has opened many eyes to the epidemic of CSA.

Darkness to Light also provides a toll-free number for individuals living in the United States who need local information and resources about sexual abuse. Any individual, child or adult who needs resources about sexual abuse can call the Helpline.
